BUYING A HOME
What is the Due Diligence Period?
Frequently referred to as, simply, the inspection period.
This is your time to do all of the necessary investigations, regarding the property, to determine if this is a good fit for you.
During this time, you’ll be able to review all of the sellers disclosures, tell you about what they know of the home. The condition of the property, the way it sits. The location of the property. As well as any other aspects that could effect your willingness to pay the agreed price for the home.
Your agent is there to assist you in any way that you need, however, this is YOUR home… not theirs. You cannot rely on the agents to assist you with discovery, as what’s important to them, may not be important to you, and vise versa.
During your transaction, you may want to refer to the Buyer Advisory, required by most brokers to be signed, and acknowledged as received, to help you through your investigations.
