Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, 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 fully explain the closing costs so you are informed of exactly what you're paying for.
Buyers: If you're buying a house in Middlesex County, you'll 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 previous experience and is required to be within a suitable range so you're not surprised when you come to the closing table. I'll be glad to go over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates of concern.
