Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, not only will I work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also advocate for limited closing costs. And once we've come to an agreement, I'll describe in detail the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.
Buyers: If you are purchasing real estate in Suffolk County, you'll 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 previous experience and is required to be within an acceptable range so you're not surprised when you get to the closing table. I'll be happy to go through the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
