Many are customary, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in Connecticut to help show you through your process.

Sellers: As we negotiate your sale, I'll not only work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also advocate for limited closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll give a detailed list of the closing costs so you are aware of exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: If you're buying a home in Hartford County, you'll be given a "Loan Estimate" (LE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application. The estimate is based on the loan officer's prior experience and is required to be within an acceptable range so you're not astonished when you reach the closing table. I'll be willing to look over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem questionable.
