Sellers: As we hammer out your transaction, not only will I work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also advocate for lower closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll explain in detail the closing costs so you are informed of exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you are buying real estate in Orleans County, you will get a "Loan Estimate" (LE) 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 shocked when you arrive at the closing table. I'll be willing to look at the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
