What closing costs should you expect?There are certain basic expenses associated with closing the sale of a house. These expenses are often split between the buyer and seller, as dictated in the sales contract. Many are conventional, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in California to help guide you through your process.

Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, not only will I work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also campaign for reduced closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll describe in detail the closing costs so you are aware of exactly what you're paying for.
Buyers: If you're buying real estate in San Diego County, you will be given a "Loan Estimate" (LE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application. The estimate is based on the loan officer's past experiences and is required to be within a suitable range so you're not startled when you come to the closing appointment. I'll be willing to go through the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
