Anticipated closing costs

There are certain ordinary fees associated with closing the sale of a house. These fees are usually divided between the buyer and seller, as noted in the sales contract. Many are universal, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in California to help guide you through the deal.

Sellers: As we hammer out your deal, I'll not only work to get the highest 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 know exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you're buying a property in Alameda County, you will be given 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 startled when you get to closing time. I'll be glad to go through the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates of concern.
