When selling your home, you will be asked to complete a seller’s disclosure form, which details all information regarding your house. However, there may be a number of things that, although you are not required to disclose, you may want to provide to your sellers as a kind gesture. Make a list of this information, and ask your realtor to pass it on when showing your Duval County real estate.
Being honest and forthright with your buyers is important, as it establishes a level of trust; and it no doubt will make potential buyers thrilled to receive helpful and useful information about your home. Here are just a few things you may want to provide to your buyers:
1. Local parks and Playground Information
- Local parks, playgrounds and areas of interest – If you have nearby movie theaters, walking trails, basketball courts, day camps for children or a great shopping mall, it’s always a great idea to share this information with your buyers. Explain a bit about the area of interest and the distance it is from your home.
2. Label All Your Paint Cans
- Label all paint cans and date them according to when you painted each room. It could be quite a trying task for buyers to search through dozens of paint cans, looking for the paint for the master bathroom.
3. Explain Your Landscaping
- If you have landscaping, explain a bit about what is planted, and the care some of the trees or plants require. If you have a green thumb, your buyers will enjoy the fact that you shared it with them.
3. Provide School Information
- Provide your buyers with information about the school district. Provide them with a map regarding the location of the local schools, as well as the bus stops in your neighborhood. If you have any other information regarding the schools or the school district, such as their academic rankings, it is always helpful to provide this information to your buyers.
