The seller’s disclosure form is among the most important documents you will evaluate when buying a home. Why? It gives you a glimpse into the history of the home in a way that touring a property simply cannot give you. And that history could be the difference between landing a home you can happily say “yes” to and one that is doomed to be a money pit. What is a seller disclosure form? Typical disclosure reports contain information about the features and history of the home’s internal and external structures, including appliances, roofing and foundation, environmental hazards, zoning regulations, and more. The owners are responsible for truthfully disclosing any information they personally know about, but they are not expected to […]

Everyone knows the importance of making a good first impression. Well, the same is true for your home. The front yard, front door, and drive way can make a major impression on buyers, so if you’re selling your home, make sure it has excellent curb appeal.

Once they’ve decided they like how the home looks, buyers are more likely to overlook something they don’t like (like the size of […]
