Expected closing costs

Many are universal, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in Texas to help lead you through your deal.

Sellers: As we get through the details of your sale, not only will we work to get the very best sales price, but we'll also advocate for reduced 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 are purchasing real estate in Houston, you will 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 previous experience and is required to be within an appropriate range so you're not startled when you show up at the closing appointment. We'll be glad to review the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
