Whether you’re selling your fifth home or your first, there are many ways to be a smart seller. One of the most important ways is to be open, honest and accurate about your property and its condition. That includes details such as the age of your home, the condition of the roof, the air conditioner and the hot-water heater. You’ll want to share your property taxes and even sample energy and water bills. If you’ve added energy-efficient or eco-friendly features, gather receipts, tags or other evidence of these green upgrades so that we can present them to potential buyers.
Under the law, you must disclose all known defects associated with your home, not just the good stuff. Most post-sale disputes and lawsuits center around defects and disclosure, and many of these disputes can be avoided if you disclose properly in the first place. That’s why most states, including Texas, require some type of formal seller’s disclosure.
Even if you’ve resolved a problem, there are times when you should disclose its existence on your notice. Intentionally withholding information about a property when you sell can have serious legal ramifications.
I’m here to help you understand your responsibilities and eliminate extra expense, hassles and possible legal consequences later. The more time we spend preparing upfront, the faster and easier the sales process will go – and the sooner you’ll be on your way to your next fabulous home!
