Sellers: As we hammer out your deal, I'll not only work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also push for reduced closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll fully explain the closing costs so you know exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you're obtaining a Bank Loan in the BVI, you'll get a "Good Faith Estimate" (GFE) of closing costs proir to Closing. The estimate is based on the loan officer's past experiences and is required to be within a reasonable range so you're not astonished when you come to the closing appointment. I'll be willing to go over the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem unusual.
