Sellers: As we negotiate your transaction, we'll not only work to get the optimal sales price, but we'll also campaign for reduced closing costs. And once we've come to an agreement, we'll fully clarify the closing costs so you are informed of exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: When purchasing a house in Dekalb County, you will receive 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 previous experience and is required to be within a suitable range so you're not shocked when you get to closing time. We'll be happy to look at the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that are uncertain.
