Real Estate Buying Mistakes – #7
Not knowing your rights and obligations
Real estate law is extensive and complex. The sales contract is a legally binding document between the buyer and seller. An improperly written contract can cause the sale to fall through or cost you thousands of dollars in unexpected repairs, inspections, and remedies for title defects.
- You must be certain which repairs and closing costs are your responsibility.
- You must know whether the property can legally be sold “as is” and how deed restrictions and local zoning will affect the transaction.
- You must know who is responsible if there are defects in the title, or if the property is in conflict with local restrictions.
I will assist you and make sure you understand the technical language in the sale of your home. It is my job to know the laws governing real estate transactions. I keep myself current on real estate laws by continuously attending seminars and training courses.
You deserve to have an agent who is not only knowledgeable about the transaction but is also willing to educate you throughout the process so you will feel more comfortable.
