Prior to writing an offer it is imperative that buyers and sellers understand the documents that will be part of the transaction.
The transaction can include any (sometimes even ALL) of these forms.
As an agent, I will help find a property, negotiate the terms and price, and generally advise my clients. What I CAN NOT do is evaluate the property condition and defects. What I CAN do is help them with doing the research necessary to make an informed decision by assisting with locating qualified professionals.
Especially beneficial to buyers is the Buyer’s Advisory. There are literally HUNDREDS of links folks may find of value to researching everything from water and well issues to crime statistics.
What clients REALLY need to understand is that I am here to help them anyway I possibly can…but ultimately, it is up to them to make sure they ask questions until they feel they truly understand everything they sign.
