Sellers: As we hammer out your deal, not only will I work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also advocate for limited closing costs. And once we've come to an agreement, I'll give a detailed list of the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.
Buyers: When purchasing a house in Orange County, you'll get a "Good Faith Estimate" (GFE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application. The estimate is based on the loan officer's previous experience and is required to be within a suitable range so you're not shocked when you show up at the closing appointment. I'll be glad to look through the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that are uncertain.
