Closing costs you should expect

There are certain expected fees related to closing the sale of a house. These costs are usually split between the buyer and seller, as instructed in the sales contract. Many are conventional, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in Connecticut to help guide you through the transaction.

Sellers: As we get through the details of your sale, not only will I work to get the highest sales price, but I'll also campaign for limited closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll describe in detail the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: When buying a home in New Haven County, you'll receive 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 astonished when you reach the closing table. I'll be glad to review the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that appear to be out of the ordinary.
