Anxious About Closing Costs?
Don’t be! The key to reducing anxiety is communication and no surprises. While we can’t guarantee there will never be a surprise along the way, we will communicate with you every step of the way. As for the closing costs, Your bank or the closing company will provide you with a detailed breakdown of the closing costs 3 days prior to closing.
However we know that for a successful closing experience, you need to know what those closing costs are going to be much earlier in the process – even before the offer is made.
Buyers typically pay more of the closing costs than sellers, usually 3-4% of the home’s price, since many of the fees are associated with the mortgage. For a more accurate estimate, ask your lender about closing costs or use an online closing cost estimator like the one below:
Ensuring the Closing Goes Smoothly
There are few things we enjoy more than saying to a client, “You’ve got the home!” That means that the seller has accepted your offer, conditions have been waived, the closing date has been set, and you’ll soon be preparing for moving day.
Just because the purchase has been made doesn’t mean our work for you stops. On the contrary. There are a myriad of other things we’ll do to ensure the process goes smoothly.
For example, we’ll take care of many of the administrative details on your behalf. We’ll work with the seller’s agent, your lawyer, and your mortgage lender to ensure that all the necessary paperwork has been completed and submitted.
Don’t worry about finding a good real estate lawyer, insurance agent, moving company, etc. We’re well-connected in the local real estate scene and can personally recommend reputable professionals and companies to help you.
If at any time leading up to moving day you have a question, problem or concern, we’ll be there to help. You can count on us to be your real estate team before, during and after you cross the threshold into your beautiful new home.
