There are many important aspects of selling your house, but one of the most important is to make sure you disclose all material defects of your home before you sell it. Although it seems easy to skip this step - don’t! It can cause you a lot of heartache and cash later on. Here are some tips to make sure the disclosure process goes smoothly:
- Fill out a seller’s disclosure. Your Realtor can provide you with a standard form to fill out that covers the basics, including the appliances, repairs needed or that have been done, and the general maintenance of the home. This form goes into great detail and you want to disclose everything you can. If you’ve ever had water damage, mold, or had your roof repaired you should disclose it to a new buyer.
