Closing costs you should expect

There are certain ordinary costs associated with closing the sale of a house. These fees are commonly divided between the buyer and seller, as noted in the sales contract. Many are customary, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in New York to help show you through your deal.

Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, I'll not only work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also push for lower closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll give a detailed list of the closing costs so you are aware of exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: When purchasing a home in New York, 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 previous experience and is required to be within a reasonable range so you're not astonished when you get to the closing appointment. I'll be willing to go through the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
