How to Get Zero Closing Costs!
As your Realtor, I will work on your behalf to negotiate your home purchase to include all closing costs and prepaid expenses.
In most cases, the Seller has put a purchase price on their home that would allow any Buyer to ask for a discount on the purchase price. Instead of taking that discount we simply request that the Seller contribute X amount of dollars towards your closing costs or prepaid expenses.
Most Sellers are more than willing to give $5,000 – $7000 back to the Buyer at the closing in lieu of the discount off the price of their home. Then all settlements are done between you, your lender and the Seller on the day of closing.
