Closing costs you should expect

There are certain expected costs associated with closing the sale of a house. These expenses are commonly divided between the buyer and seller, as dictated in the sales contract. Many are universal, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in Pennsylvania to help guide you through the deal.

Sellers: As we hammer out your transaction, not only will I work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also campaign for lower closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll fully clarify the closing costs so you are informed of exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: When purchasing a property in Luzerne County, you'll get 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 an appropriate range so you're not stunned when you show up at the closing appointment. I'll be happy to go through the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that appear to be out of the ordinary.
