Many are customary, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in Louisiana to help guide you through your transaction.

Sellers: As we negotiate your transaction, not only will we work to get the very best sales price, but we will also push for reduced closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, we will explain in detail the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you are buying a house in Calcasieu Parish, 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 previous experience and is required to be within an appropriate range so you're not stunned when you arrive at the closing table.  We will be glad to review the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates of concern.
