Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, I'll not only work to get the highest sales price, but I'll also push for lower closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll fully clarify the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: If you are buying a property in Bexar 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 prior experience and is required to be within a tolerable range so you're not surprised when you come to the closing table. I'll be glad to go over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
