Home Buyer Tips: Sellers disclose, Buyers verify.

Who among us does not know at least one person who can keep track of all the details in their life?   I am not one of those types.  I am more of a "ballpark" figure person. 

When selling your home there are some details that need to be available to prospective buyers.

Among these are any issues with your home.  Anything that affects value should be disclosed up front.

Likewise, if there is a homeowner association, details like whether belonging is mandatory or voluntary.   In the central Brevard County, Florida areas of Viera, Suntree and Rockledge, the answer here is yes.

Another detail that should be disclosed is the price of membership and membership related questions

I always recommend buyers contact the association management or officers directly to discuss the balance sheet, issues with delinquent owners verify costs, and whether any special assessments exist or are planned in the future.

All too often while looking for homes there is an association fee listed in the MLS system that is not correct albeit most often in the "ballpark."

Key point:  Sellers disclose, Buyers verify.   Follow this simple rule and there will likely not be an surprises later on.
