Sellers: As we negotiate your sale, not only will I work to get the highest sales price, but I'll also campaign for lower closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll fully clarify the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.
Buyers: When purchasing a home in Santa Clara 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 past experiences and is required to be within a suitable range so you're not stunned when you reach the closing table. I'll be happy to look over the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem unusual.
