Sellers: As we negotiate your transaction, I'll not only work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also push for lower closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll fully clarify the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.
Buyers: If you're purchasing a home in Tamuning, 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 come to the closing table. I'll be happy to go through the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates in question.
