EDMONTON, AB, August 29, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Edmonton condo
development Bellwether Park has recently posted a blog about what is needed when selling a home. There are a number of different things that should be saved and handed over to the home purchaser. These items should be ready to go in advance of the home's closing date.
One of the important things that a home buyer needs is the house's maintenance records. This includes repairs to the foundation, heating, plumbing, roof, appliances and any thing else that's important. In addition, any warranties or manuals that were included with repairs or appliances should be handed over as well.
Another thing that should be given to a home's new buyer is a list of upgrades and equity specifications on the home. These can help to justify the selling price and show how much money was invested into the home during your ownership. Upgrades including a new roof, new plumbing, heating system upgrades or electrical systems should all be documented.
Legal documents are especially important to the home's sale. The Real Property Report with Compliance shows whether any building permits were taken out on the property to ensure that upgrades are up to code. It is also important to note that condo owners should provide all of the condo association's documents to the buyer.
Lastly, any banking paperwork should be kept handy if there is an outstanding mortgage on the home. Lenders should be contacted immediately to find out if there is a penalty that must be paid to change the terms of the mortgage, or whether it can be transferred to another property.
Having all of the correct documents at hand when it comes time to sell your home can make the process much easier. It can also help to make a sale if proper maintenance work and upgrades were done.
