What closing costs should you expect?

Sellers: As we get through the details of your sale, not only will I work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also advocate for reduced closing costs. And once we've come to an agreement, I'll explain in detail the closing costs so you are informed of exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: When purchasing real estate in Klickitat 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 prior experience and is required to be within an acceptable range so you're not shocked when you show up at the closing table. I'll be willing to look over the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that are uncertain.
