Hiding Issues in Home
DON’T GET CAUGHT SWEEPING ISSUES UNDER THE RUG!
Although I’ve seen some sellers make this mistake, it’s just not worth it, and could end up costing you in the end.
The good news is that every house has spots and blemishes — and while no one wants to put their worst foot forward, tell your listing agent about roof leaks, foundation cracks, lead-based paint, water damage, or electrical problems.

It’s a smart idea anyway since you’ll have several professionals in and out of your home throughout the home selling process — your agent, the buyer’s agent, a home inspector, and possible contract workers. All for which will be looking for issues that need addressing.A seller’s agent will help you know exactly what needs to be disclosed (another perk of hiring an agent over FSBO), so choose an experienced agent with an excellent reputation.
