Why Completing the Seller's Disclosure is an Essential Part of Listing Your Home

When selling a home at the Lake of the Ozarks, your real estate agent will do what's necessary to cover your interest during the listing process. One of these tasks will be to have you complete a seller's disclosure form. This is a statement that discloses important or relevant information to a real property buyer. In real estate disclosure, a seller has to disclose to a buyer the latent defects in the property. While many people may not see the importance of completing this document in its entirety, we're discussing why your completion of this form is an essential part of the listing process.

Provides Your Listing Agent with Pertinent Information
Much of the information provided on the seller's disclosure can be used by the listing agent to provide accurate information on the listing itself when advertising.

1. Declutter
People don't realize just how much stuff they accumulate over the years until it's time to pack it all up on moving day.
