Expected closing costs

There are certain standard expenses related to closing the sale of a house. These costs are usually divided 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 Massachusetts to help show you through the process.

Sellers: As we negotiate your deal, I'll not only work to get the highest sales price, but I'll also advocate for reduced closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll walk you through the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: When purchasing a house in Bristol County, you'll be given 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 prior experience and is required to be within an appropriate range so you're not shocked when you get to closing time. I'll be glad to go over the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that are uncertain.
