Many are conventional, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in North Carolina to help show you through your process.

Sellers: As we hammer out your transaction, I'll not only work to get the highest sales price, but I'll also campaign for reduced closing costs. And once we've come to an agreement, I'll describe in detail the closing costs so you are aware of exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: If you are purchasing real estate in Watauga County, you'll 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 previous experience and is required to be within a suitable range so you're not startled when you arrive at the closing appointment. I'll be willing to review the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem unusual.
