Anticipated closing costs

There are certain basic costs linked to closing the sale of a house. These fees are commonly split between the buyer and seller, as directed 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 transaction.

Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, I'll not only work to get the highest sales price, but I'll also push for lower closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll explain in detail the closing costs so you know exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you're buying real estate in Kern County, you will 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 tolerable range so you're not shocked when you reach the closing appointment. I'll be willing to go over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that appear to be out of the ordinary.
