 What should I disclose about my property?     (what is it)?

What should I disclose about my property?     (what is it)?

 

What is a sellers’ disclosure?

 When someone decides to sell the home they own, they are charged with compiling a list of any conditions or facts about the home that could potentially affect its value now or in the future. The sellers’ disclosure is a list of defects the seller knows about, whether they’ve been fixed/updated or not. A seller usually makes this list available to any potential buyer at the time of closing.

 This list doesn’t typically include things a buyer would be able to see or find in an inspection; things a buyer might not find out about a home until they’ve lived in it for a period of time. This might include something like bathroom plumbing that

What's the difference between a realtor and a broker?

 

When buying and selling real estate, you can get hit with a lot of terminology! One of the first and most important questions you’ll want answered is whether you’re working with a single agent or a transaction broker. (You can read more about that here!)

What are HOAs and CDDs?

What are HOAs and CDDs?

 Duval, Clay, and St. Johns Counties all have many pre-planned communities that charge the homeowners HOA or CDD fees. These two fees can feel confusing; what is the HOA money used for and what is the CDD money used for? And why do some communities charge both?

 It’s important to know the difference between these fees and specifically how much they are in each community. Your Realtor should be giving you that information prior to shopping for homes because it could affect your ability to afford a home and its monthly payment.

What is an HOA?

HOA is short for Home Owners Association Fee. This is a fee that is determined by the governing body, or board, of the housing community in which your new home might be located.

When should you reduce the list price of your home?

 

When should you reduce the list price of your home?

As most of you know by now, the 2022 real estate market is like none we’ve ever seen in Florida. For a brief period of time, interest rates were lower than they’ve ever been and home prices were still well below that of the rest of the country’s average. But as the desire went up, the inventory began to diminish. This drove home prices up, which caused more people who may not have chosen to sell their homes in 2022 to sell them at a huge profit. 

 It’s a Sellers’ Market

The market is still very “buyer heavy” meaning that there are more people who need homes than there are people who are willing to sell their homes. But that doesn’t mean that every home that hits the market sells

Every home listed for sale on the open market goes onto a searchable website called the MLS. This site is accessible only by Realtors but can be shared with you as a client through a separate portal. The listings on the MLS are then sent out to hundreds of other home-listing websites like Zillow and Realtor.com. This is the first and most important step to marketing your home; after all, if no one knows your home is for sale, how will they buy it?

 But listing your home for sale in the MLS is not enough. You’ve got to list it right and list it smart!
