Get It In Writing

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with Sutton Group Summit

As you tour a potential new home, you notice that the carpeting in the living room is stained. “Don’t worry about that,” says the homeowner, who senses your disapproval. “We’re going to get the carpeting professionally cleaned before we move.”

Should you take their word for it?

Regardless of how honest a seller may seem, never rely on a verbal promise.

Will they move that abandoned car in the back yard? Will they fix the crack in the front steps? Is that expensive-looking ceiling fan included with the house?

Don’t assume. Get it written into the offer.

No doubt, never leave any issue that will need future resolution up in the air... get it done in writing, and with consequences if not performed.

Marina - You are absolutely correct. No matter how genuine the seller may seem, you need to get everything in writing or it will not be enforceable. Plus, once you have it in writing, it should clear up most misunderstandings.
