90% of real estate searches start online. One way to stand out from the crowd is to come up with a high quality listing.
What should be a part of a listing
In the United States, the purchase and sale of real estate follow strict rules. Among the elements that are an integral part of a transaction, the information document, known as the “disclosure document“. This document is important for each of the parties involved in the sale of real estate insofar as it provides essential information allowing them to act in full knowledge of the facts.
Generally speaking, the information document provides all the details about the condition of a property, which may negatively affect its value.
Any concealment or attempt to conceal material may result in a misdemeanor conviction. Furthermore, the sale of real estate “as is” generally does not exempt the seller from his obligation to disclose. The rules relating to the information document concern any owner wishing to sell a property, but more particularly those who transform dwellings and bet on short-term transactions.
The content of the disclosure statement varies from state to state depending on local laws.
