When I asked one of my sellers to complete her seller disclosures, she asked if the buyers would be willing to wait a couple of weeks. While this might sound outrageously amusing to some agents in the business, sellers are not automatically aware of what is expected from them. Even when we send a timeline, laying out each duty of the responsible parties. If there are lingering questions, sometimes they don't get asked.
As a Sacramento listing agent, I find myself very much attuned to the needs of my sellers. I realize they are not in the business of selling real estate, and when I suggest certain actions to help relieve them of liability, those suggestions don't always make sense to sellers. Like giving buyers invoices when the work has been completed and available for viewing.
