Sellers: As we hammer out your transaction, not only will we work to get the very best sales price, but We’ll also campaign for lower closing costs. And once we’ve come to an agreement, we’ll explain in detail the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.
Buyers: When buying real estate, you’ll receive 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 past experiences and is required to be within a tolerable range so you’re not surprised when you get to the closing table.
