The Value of doing a Pre Home Inspection when Selling your Sedona Home

Mon, Jan 23rd 2017 5:45 am by Barbara Baker Sedona Real Estate

Should A Seller do a Pre-Home Inspection on their Sedona Home before they list the property on the Open Market?  I would say Absolutely YES!  It will cost between $500-800.00 depending on the size of the home and will give the seller the opportunity to fix any Large Items or Items not currently at Code, provides a Seller with Piece of Mind, and gives the Seller the Opportunity to share with the Buyer the repaired items.   It also gives a buyer the assurance that the Seller is taking the Home Selling Process seriously by investigating and fixing any items that may need repair.  So Sedona Home Sellers - Listen UP!  When your realtor suggest obtaining a Sedona Home Inspection - Say YES!  For...

How long to keep Recordation of Home Sale Documents?

Mon, Jan 2nd 2017 8:52 pm by Barbara Baker Sedona Homes for Sale

Arizona law requires that real estate brokers keep records of all real estate sales for at least five years, but there is no Arizona law requiring sellers to keep records of real estate sales.
  A reasonable period of time for a seller to keep all of the home sale documents would not be longer than the five years required for real estate brokers. However, a seller of a home can generally be sued for up to six years for a breach of contract claim, so keeping the purchase contract documents for a period of six years after closing is preferred.  For all you Sedona Real Estate Needs, you can email me here, or call or text me at 928-301-0669.
