Closing Costs - Buyers

There are certain standard costs associated with buying a property in Silicon Beach. Some of these fees are split between the buyer and seller, as spelled out in the sales contract. The cost split on these fees is, to an extent, negotiable.

As we negotiate the purchase contract on your behalf, we will strive to achieve not only the purchase price you want, but to also limit the number and amount of closing costs for which you are responsible.

Good Faith Estimate

Buyers will receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of closing costs at the time his/her/their loan application is submitted to the lender. The estimate is based on the loan officer’s past experience and may not include all the closing costs. We are happy to review the Good Faith Estimate and provide comments based on our experience.
