HOME SELLER TIPS
Here are some tips for home sellers from the viewpoint of an attorney who has spent a few months in trial over 30 plus different home sale transactions with problems.
Follow the GOLDEN RULE - DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO TO YOU. If you would want to know the information if you were buying the house, then just assume that your buyer will want to know that information also.
RED FLAG WARNING!!!! If your realtor tries to talk you out of disclosing something, chances are it is going to be a problem for the buyer. To prove this point, just ask your realtor to document her advice in an email. You won't get an email on that issue.
If the buyer later finds it to be a big enough problem, you are going to get sued. If you get sued, the Realtor is not going to defend you or help you. In fact, the realtor will then deny that you ever had any such conversation.
