Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, not only will I work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also campaign for lower closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll give a detailed list of the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: When purchasing real estate in Washington 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 past experiences and is required to be within a suitable range so you're not startled when you show up at closing time. I'll be happy to review the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates in question.
