Sellers: As we hammer out your sale, not only will I work to get the highest sales price, but I'll also campaign for reduced closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll describe in detail the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.
Buyers: If you are purchasing a property in Orlando, you will be given a "Loan Estimate" (LE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application and a "Closing Disclosure" no fewer than three days prior to closing. These estimates are based on the loan officer's previous experience and are required to be within a suitable range so you're not stunned when you show up at the closing appointment. I'll be happy to go over the estimate with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates in question.
