Sellers: As we get through the details of your deal, I'll not only work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also advocate for reduced closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll walk you through the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.
Buyers: If you're buying a house in Bristol County, you will be given 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 a suitable range so you're not startled when you come to the closing table. I'll be willing to look at the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that are uncertain.
