Sellers: As we negotiate your deal, not only will I 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: If you are purchasing real estate in Lexington County, you will get 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 reasonable range so you're not surprised when you show up at closing time. I'll be happy to review the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that are uncertain.
