Sellers: As we negotiate your deal, we’ll not only work to get the highest sales price, but we’ll also campaign for limited closing costs. And once we’ve come to an agreement, we’ll walk you through the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.
Buyers: If you’re buying a house in Tampa, you will be given a “Loan Estimate” (LE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application and a “Closing Disclosure” no fewer than three days prior to closing. These estimates are based on the loan officer’s past experiences and are required to be within a reasonable range so you’re not startled when you reach closing time. We’ll be happy to review the estimate with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates of concern.
