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 advocate for reduced closing costs. And once we've come to an agreement, I'll give a detailed list of the closing costs so you are informed of exactly what you're paying for.
Buyers: If you are purchasing a house in Pinellas County, you will receive a "Good Faith Estimate" (GFE) 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 surprised when you arrive at closing time. I'll be glad to go over the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem unusual.
