Seller's Disclosures

Now that the formal inspections have been completed, you can decide what issues from the inspection reports you would like to address.  You are not required to fix everything that shows up in these reports as long as you disclose everything.  But issues like plumbing and electrical work are a good return on investment projects.  We want to assure the buyers that the home was well cared for.  

 

Since we are looking for a truly "As-Is" sale, now it's time for YOU to disclose as much information to the buyers as possible.  The way we do that is by supplying the potential buyers with the home, pest, roof, chimney inspections and also giving them your own “seller's disclosures”.  Here's an educational video that I created which explains why disclosures are so important: 

 

Your seller's disclosures are not difficult to fill out.  In fact the two most important documents, the TDS and the SPQ are only seven pages of yes/no questions. We will send you a sample set of the TDS and SPQ so that you can follow along as you watch the video.  

We can complete ALL of the documents together either online or at the location of your choice.  Let me know what day(s) and time(s) are best for you.

Here are the documents that are explained in the the video:

  • Disclosure Information Advisory

  • Transfer Disclosure Statement (TDS)

  • Seller Property Questionnaire (SPQ)

  • Agent Visual Inspection Advisory (AVID)

  • Market Conditions Advisory (MCA)

  • San Mateo/Santa Clara Counties Advisory (17 pages)

  • Lead Based Paint Disclosure

  • Water Heater and Smoke Detector Statement (WHSD)

  • Water Conserving Plumbing Fixtures and Carbon Monoxide Disclosure (WCMD)

  • Homeowner’s Guide to Hazards and Earthquake Safety

  • Seller’s Affidavit of Nonforeign Status (FIRPTA)

  • Keller Williams Centric Disclosures:

    • Advisory Regarding Completing Documents Electronically

    • Scope of Broker Duty and Selection of Vendors

    • Affiliated Business Arrangement Disclosure

    • KWBAE General Disclosures (permits, schools, views, lot size)

 

Don’t worry.  We are here for you and we will walk through this with you at your pace and convenience.  Remember, our goal is to make this as stress-free as possible.

Once you have completed the seller’s disclosures, we will email you a copy of them for your records.
