Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, not only will we work to get the very best sales price, but we'll also campaign for lower closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, we'll describe in detail the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: When purchasing a home in Clermont County, you'll get 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 past experiences and is required to be within an appropriate range so you're not astonished when you get to the closing appointment. We'll be willing to look over the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem unusual.
