Samuel and Mary Ho
Growing up in The Bronx, I often heard my mother Adele say the phrase “caveat emptor” — “let the buyer beware”.
If she were a Realtor, she’d now say “emptor informari” — “let the buyer be informed” (as translated by google)
Providing information on your home’s condition to the buyer is different from marketing, where we talk about all the things which make your home special.
Here’s why it to your advantage to provide buyers with a full set of disclosures, reports, inspections, and cost estimates before they make an offer on your home.
When buyers know the cost of repairs before they make an offer, their offer takes into account the work needed and how much it costs. Buyers are more comfortable making offers when they know what condition a home is in:
They offer higher prices
Their offer is “as-is” with regard to what’s been disclosed
Buyers are less likely to discover new problems during their inspection period
Transactions are much smoother with less (or no) renegotiations
They close faster
Informed buyers make better offers with fewer contingencies. Providing comprehensive reports and disclosures is one way we’ll sell your home for the highest possible price.
