Expected closing costs

There are certain standard fees related to closing the sale of a house. These fees are usually split between the buyer and seller, as noted in the sales contract. Many are customary, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in Texas to help lead you through the transaction.

Sellers: As we hammer out your sale, I'll not only work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also campaign for reduced closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll explain in detail the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you're purchasing a property in County, you will get 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 a reasonable range so you're not surprised when you come to the closing appointment. I'll be happy to look at the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem unusual.
