In Real Estate circles the we have a phrase that we emphasize to our sellers. It is actually very simple. It is 3 words and they repeat! DISCLOSE, DISCLOSE, DISCLOSE.
In reality we live in a litigious world and the best way to protect ourselves is to disclose what defects are aware of when we list our homes for sale.
Recently, I had the unfortunate experience of listing a home of a long term client where a family member recently ended his life by hanging. While, it was very very sad, I had to know if this has to be disclosed to buyers.
The laws vary by state but on NC there is a published document entitled 14 Facts you Do Not Need to Disclose wen selling! You can read the article here.

Birkdale, Birkdale Village and Huntersville Sellers, Be Prepared for Inspections
Are you thinking of selling your home? Being prepared for negotiations and setting list price can also involve being prepared for inspection results I will explain below. Once the sales price is negotiated the buyer's lender ( if not cash deal ) will have appraisals done and the buyer will have inspections done. Historically this can be some of the most stressful part of the transaction.
If you think about it, the buyer highers an inspector to find things wrong. Even if you feel your home is in fantastic shape, the inspector will find something. It is inevitable!
There are some things you can do to be prepared. One thing you have to be cognizant of. If you know for sure of defects, you need to fix them or you need to disclose them. This is what the property disclosure is for. It can have an effect on the sales price. This is why being proactive on this, as mentioned above, can be an important aspect of the overall process.
So, what are some things you can do:

Selling Your Birkdale, Birkdale Village, Huntersville Home Video #1 - Overview
However, there is a large caveat to this and I am sure you have heard it over and over. You have to be realistic about price, condition and competition. These are all things that I can assist with.
The videos will cover some things to avoid and also discuss a little bit about expectations. Every job I have ever had, my superiors had expectations. You have expectations of your Realtor and I feel it is important to discuss these. While I do go over what will be done for you, I am sure you have expectations that maybe I don't mention. We discuss these up front. It is my utmost desire to make the transaction go as smoothly as possible.
Real Estate transactions can be extremely emotional and I try to use everything at my disposal to help work through these. Some of what I can do will tie back into the discussion on brokerages which I will revisit but I believe you will see how can really make the transaction become a win win for everyone!
Selling Your Birkdale, Birkdale Village, Huntersville Home Video #2 - Pricing
I am sure you have been told many times that pricing your home is the number one critical 1st step in selling your home. This is essential to get showings and obtain the highest and best price. There are things we can do via data and actually looking at competition to make sure we are making an informed decision. A mistake I see is the people price there homes based on tax value and/or what they owe on the home. This is a mistake than can cause frustration as your home sits on the market!!

Video #1 for your next Huntersville Real Estate Agent
Video #2 for your next Huntersville Real Estate Agent
These videos explain how agencies work, how they pay their agents. If you recall in the Huntersville Real Estate agent #1, we described what the definition of a Broker is. To remind us, It is the negotiation of a transaction on behalf another. If you are buying and selling real estate in the Birkdale, Birkdale Village or other Huntersville areas, this video may enlighten!
To offer full disclosure these videos just touch on a couple of scenarios. Obviously there are many many other pay scales brokerages offer and I could not mention all of those. Why does any of this matter? I hope it will come together in a future video. Again, I apologize that these are broken up but the mere size of the files requires this to happen.
