Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, I'll not only work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also campaign for reduced closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll fully clarify the closing costs so you know exactly where your money is going.
Buyers: If you are buying a home in Alameda 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 suitable range so you're not startled when you come to closing time. I'll be glad to go over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates in question.
