Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, I'll not only work to get the highest sales price, but I'll also push for limited closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll fully explain the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.
Buyers: When purchasing real estate in Tamuning, you'll be given a "Good Faith Estimate" (GFE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application.
