Anticipated closing costsThere are certain normal costs accompanying closing the sale of a house. These expenses are commonly divided between the buyer and seller, as instructed in the sales contract. Many are customary, 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 negotiate your transaction, I'll not only work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also push for reduced closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll walk you through the closing costs so you are aware of exactly what you're paying for.
Buyers: If you're buying a home in Alameda County, you will be given a "Loan Estimate" (LE) 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 an acceptable range so you're not surprised when you arrive at closing time. I'll be glad to look over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that are uncertain.
