Sellers: As we negotiate your transaction, not only will I work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also push for lower closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll explain in detail the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: When purchasing a house in Hartford County, you will get 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 a tolerable range so you're not stunned when you get to the closing appointment. I'll be glad to look over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that appear to be out of the ordinary.
