Sellers: As we negotiate your sale, 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 arrived at an agreement, I'll explain in detail the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.
Buyers: If you're purchasing a house 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 a reasonable range so you're not surprised when you come to closing time. I'll be happy to look through the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that are uncertain.
