As a caveat emptor state Alabama does not require seller disclosure, as nearly every other state now does. Sellers are required to disclose known health and safety hazards and answer al direct inquiries truthfully and promptly. Making a buyer’s agent especially important and since all listed properties have the buyer’s agent commission built in, it costs the buyer nothing. Add to that a solid home inspection, whether new construction or existing, and you have the two best buyer tools when purchasing a home for a total of $500 or less depending on the home size and location. A personal note, if I represent you as a seller and a buyer asks for a seller disclosure, as happens due to our proximity to Georgia, I am going to council you not to comply UNLESS it will kill the deal and activity has been light. Here’s why, that 5 page disclosure lives on, and what if you forgot to mention that a good rain floods part of the garage? It is easy to forget in the dry days we have had. Do you want that, or something worse, coming back home to you down the road. Buyer agency is no cost or responsibility difference to the buyer but is much more responsibility to the Realtor than transaction broker status.
