PROPERTY DISCLOSURES PROTECT BUYERS

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Western Realty

Existing Home Sales By Region

Sellers are obligated by law to disclose certain known problems that could affect a home's desirability or value. This doesn't excuse buyers from exercising due diligence when discovering all they can about a property, however. Sellers are only obligated to share what they know. For this reason, a licensed REALTOR should be consulted when evaluating a property for purchase. Various issues such as lead paint, asbestos, and radon can seem intimidating, but they don't have to be deal breakers. Before making an offer on that next home, review the list of seller disclosures with your agent and determine the best course of action. A little homework here can add thousands of dollars to your bottom line!

I've found too that SPDS (Seller's Property Disclosure Statement) is to protect the seller as well as the buyer (and the realtor).   I've found that when properly disclosed, problems seem easier to deal with - both emotionally and financially.   The famous statemtent cannot go without meaning... "When in Doubt, Disclose!".

Additional Information

The majority of my clients already live in or around Bellingham and are both selling and buying in our area. Some of my clients are selling out of the area and moving to Whatcom County from as far away as California or even Washington, DC. Bellingham and Whatcom County are vibrant places and are undergoing many changes. This is the greatest time ever to live in the Pacific Northwest and especially in Whatcom County.
