Real Estate Question

Question Of The Day By G.K; “If A Property Says “As-Is” & No Disclosure, Should I Not Proceed?”

Answer: “As-Is” Is A Term Typically Used In Today’s Market When Dealing With Short Sales & Forclosure Properties. When It Also States No Disclosure, It Is Safe To Assume That The Owners Are No Longer Involved, And Since The Bank Is An Entity, They Cannot Advise On The Condition Of The Property. “As-Is” Is Not A Bad Thing Because You Still Get Your “Due Diligence” Time Period Under The Contract To Have A Professional Home Inspector Examine The Home; Then, You Can Determine If You Would Still Like To Proceed After The Inspection Report Without Any Penalty. If You Have Any Other Questions On As-Is Properties Please Call 850-877-2692

Real Estate Question Of The Day

Question Of The Day By R.B; “Is It Normal Practice For A Seller To Ask For Extra Money For Themselves To Extend A Contract Closing Date?”

Answer: If A Buyer Is Requesting An Extension To Close For Reasons Beyond Their Control, The Buyers Agent Should Submit An Addendum Requesting Additional Time Based On Specified Reason(s) And For A Reasonable Amount Of Time. It Is Normal Practice For A Seller To Request That The Buyer Pay Additional Escrow/Binder Deposit, Which Will Be Forfeited To The Selle If Buyer Does Not Close. It Is Not Standard Practice To Pay A Seller Directly. For More Information On Addendums Please Call 850-877-2692
