Sellers: As we hammer out your deal, not only will I work to get the highest sales price, but I'll also push for limited closing costs. And once we've come to an agreement, I'll fully explain the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: When buying real estate in Kern 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 previous experience and is required to be within a suitable range so you're not startled when you reach the closing table. I'll be willing to go over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem questionable.
