Sellers: As we negotiate your transaction, I'll not only work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also advocate for reduced closing costs. And once we've come to an agreement, I'll describe in detail the closing costs so you are informed of exactly where your money is going.
Buyers: If you're buying a home in Tamuning, 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 past experiences and is required to be within a reasonable range so you're not surprised when you come to closing time. I'll be willing to go through the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates in question.
