Sellers: As we hammer out your sale, I'll not only work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also campaign for lower closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll explain in detail the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: If you are purchasing a home in Los Angeles County, you'll receive 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 tolerable range so you're not shocked when you reach the closing appointment. I'll be happy to look at the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem unusual.
