Seller disclosure is critical to a smooth home sale and reducing seller liability, but not all homeowners are aware of its value to the home selling process. Seller disclosure, the obligation of a home seller to tell any potential buyer about problems in the property, is only mandatory in several states. However, it is rapidly catching on locally and many real estate companies are developing their own voluntary disclosure policies.

Buying a vacation home that doubles as a future retirement home requires forethought and thorough investigation.  Conventional wisdom tells us to first settle on a desired location and then look for the least expensive house in the best possible neighborhood.  This is of course true, but buying a future retirement property demands additional consideration.  Without a doubt, the purchase of a dual purposed home can be one of the most important and financial rewarding decisions a pre-retirement couple undertakes.  Quite simply, the ultimate home buying decision comes down to establishing relatively conservative financial boundaries, drawing up a wish list and employing … (0 comments)
