Sellers: As we hammer out your sale, I'll not only work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also advocate for reduced closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll walk you through the closing costs so you are aware of exactly what you're paying for.
Buyers: When buying a home in Dallas 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 previous experience and is required to be within a reasonable range so you're not stunned when you show up at closing time. I'll be willing to look at the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
