Before Putting In an Offer, Make Sure You Look at the Property Disclosure

Posted by on Tuesday, December 17, 2013

You've found the home of your dreams and you're ready to put in an offer. If your agent did not show you the house's property disclosure yet, make sure you ask for it before you sign that offer contract and send it over to the seller. This is really important. There is a lot of things that you may learn about the house from this document that you may not be able to know from just viewing the property that one time.

It is the seller's responsibility to provide a property disclosure when they are selling the house. They mark down all the things that may need repairs and what type of roof or materials the home is made out of. They will also let you know how old the roof is and how old the heating and cooling units are on the sheet as well. 

With that being said, even though it is the seller's duty to provide this document to the buyers, it is not until you get a home inspection and a termite inspection that you can determine if there are real problems and undisclosed issues about the house so make sure you get those done when you are ready to schedule them.
