Seller FAQ: How Much Do I Have to Disclose to Buyers?

The short answer: Everything you know.⁣


The longer answer: You’re required to provide a written description (your agent will give you the form) about any known issues with your home that could hurt its value. Those issues include:⁣


Electrical or wiring issues⁣

Presence of lead-based paint⁣

Foundation cracks⁣

Plumbing or HVAC issues⁣

Septic or sewer problems⁣

Water seepage/flooding concerns⁣

etc.

The disclosure statement is good for buyers AND sellers. How? It brings transparency to the transaction, minimizes delays, and heads off the risk of legal headaches down the road.⁣
