What closing costs should you expect?

There are certain standard fees linked to closing the sale of a house. These fees are often split between the buyer and seller, as instructed in the sales contract. Many are conventional, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in Florida to help direct you through your transaction.

Sellers: As we get through the details of your deal, not only will I work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also campaign for lower closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll fully explain the closing costs so you are aware of exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: If you're buying a home in Lee 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 prior experience and is required to be within an appropriate range so you're not astonished when you get to the closing appointment. I'll be glad to go over the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates in question.
