Closing costs you should expect

Many are customary, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in California to help lead you through the process.

Sellers: As we negotiate your transaction, not only will I work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also advocate for reduced closing costs. And once we've come to an agreement, I'll walk you through the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: If you are purchasing 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 reasonable range so you're not startled when you reach the closing table. I'll be willing to look at the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
