Closing costs you should expect

There are certain ordinary costs accompanying closing the sale of a house. These costs are commonly split between the buyer and seller, as dictated in the sales contract. Many are conventional, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in Florida to help lead you through your transaction.

Sellers: As we negotiate your sale, I'll not only work to get the highest sales price, but I'll also advocate for lower 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 property in Desoto County, you will receive a "Loan Estimate" (LE) 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 a tolerable range so you're not surprised when you reach the closing appointment. I'll be happy to go over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem unusual.
