Sellers: As we hammer out your deal, I'll not only work to get the highest sales price, but I'll also campaign for reduced closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll fully explain the closing costs so you are informed of exactly where your money is going.
Buyers: If you're purchasing a house in Middlesex County, you'll 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 reasonable range so you're not surprised when you get to the closing appointment. I'll be willing to look through the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that are uncertain.
