The seller must disclose everything they know about the house to potential sellers, including its weaknesses. This is covered in a formal declaration completed by the real estate agent or the Home Inspector.

[/mpc_accordion_tab][mpc_accordion_tab title=”Why do I need a Home Inspection?”]

A Home Inspection helps you understand exactly where you stand before a buyer enters the house. If you can declare a problem before a buyer finds it, it can’t become a point of negotiation on the final price.

[/mpc_accordion_tab][mpc_accordion_tab title=”Do I have to repair everything wrong with the house?”]

No. Any repairs on your home are up to you; but depending on the nature of the repairs, you may get a better price for the home.
