Get every question answered by the Sellers in writing
During the course of the purchase, it is inevitable that you will want to
ask the sellers something about the house. They usual course of
communications is for you to ask your realtor who then conveys the
question to the seller's realtor who then relays the question to the
Then the sellers tell their realtor the answer who then tells
who then tells you. That's four degrees of separation
question and the answer. This process also allows the
realtors to filter
the question and the answer and inject their spin on
either or both the
question and the answer.
To avoid this procedure and get a direct answer, insist that the Sellers
themselves answer the questions in writing. Then, you will know your
questions are not being manipulated.
