2. Personal safety tips.
If you are trying to sell your property, there are some safety guidelines you should follow to keep yourself and others safe. The fact is you are leaving your home exposed to a parade of strangers. Potential buyers want to see your entire home, even inside closets and kitchen cupboards. While the vast majority of homebuyers are safe, honest people, precautions are necessary for the rare possibility that just one could see your home as an opportunity for crime. Here are some security measures to take before you allow would-be buyers in the door:
- Remember to remove keys, credit cards, jewelry and other valuables from the home or lock them away. Also remove prescription medications from medicine cabinets and bedside tables.
- Firearms, knives (including blocks in the kitchen) and other weapons need to be removed from sight and locked away.
- Bills, invoices, credit card statements, and anything with your social security number or other identifying information should be removed from view. Family photos and anything labeled with names should also be removed.
- Never discuss your personal schedule or habits with potential buyers.
- Request that all visitors sign in a guestbook or roster and enter and leave through one door only, except when you escort them to the backyard, garage, etc. You should personally have quick and easy access to all your exits.
- Without hovering, escort prospective buyers through your home by following them (never leading them) and keeping them within sight at all times. Keep a reasonable distance between you and your visitor. Never enter a room with a visitor. You could be trapped inside. Keep your path clear for a speedy exit.
- After an open house, check all the windows, doors and other entrances to make sure they are locked.
There’s no way to cover every potential scenario that could occur. You should trust your gut instinct. “Do not allow the potential for monetary gain to cloud your judgment,”If you feel as though something is amiss, you are probably right.”

It’s important to understand what legal responsibilities your real estate salesperson has to you and to other parties in the transactions. Ask your salesperson to explain what type of agency relationship you have with him or her and with the brokerage company.
- Seller’s representative (also known as a listing agent or seller’s agent). A seller’s agent is hired by and represents the seller. All fiduciary duties are owed to the seller. The agency relationship usually is created by a listing contract.
- Subagent. A subagent owes the same fiduciary duties to the agent’s principal as the agent does. Subagency usually arises when a cooperating sales associate from another brokerage, who is not representing the buyer as a buyer’s representative or operating in a nonagency relationship, shows property to a buyer. In such a case, the subagent works with the buyer as a customer but owes fiduciary duties to the listing broker and the seller. Although a subagent cannot assist the buyer in any way that would be detrimental to the seller, a buyer-customer can expect to be treated honestly by the subagent. It is important that subagents fully explain their duties to buyers.
- Buyer’s representative (also known as a buyer’s agent). A real estate licensee who is hired by prospective buyers to represent them in a real estate transaction. The buyer’s rep works in the buyer’s best interest throughout the transaction and owes fiduciary duties to the buyer. The buyer can pay the licensee directly through a negotiated fee, or the buyer’s rep may be paid by the seller or by a commission split with the listing broker.
- Disclosed dual agent. Dual agency is a relationship in which the brokerage firm represents both the buyer and the seller in the same real estate transaction. Dual agency relationships do not carry with them all of the traditional fiduciary duties to the clients. Instead, dual agents owe limited fiduciary duties. Because of the potential for conflicts of interest in a dual-agency relationship, it’s vital that all parties give their informed consent. In many states, this consent must be in writing. Disclosed dual agency, in which both the buyer and the seller are told that the agent is representing both of them is legal.
- Designated agent (also called, among other things, appointed agency). This is a brokerage practice that allows the managing broker to designate which licensees in the brokerage will act as an agent of the seller and which will act as an agent of the buyer. Designated agency avoids the problem of creating a dual-agency relationship for licensees at the brokerage. The designated agents give their clients full representation, with all of the attendant fiduciary duties. The broker still has the responsibility of supervising both groups of licensees.
- Nonagency relationship (called, among other things, a transaction broker or facilitator). Some countries permit a real estate licensee to have a type of nonagency relationship with a consumer. These relationships vary considerably from country to country, both as to the duties owed to the consumer and the name used to describe them. Very generally, the duties owed to the consumer in a nonagency relationship are less than the complete, traditional fiduciary duties of an agency relationship.
Five Things To Do Before You Sell
- Get estimates from a reliable repair person on items that need to be replaced soon, a roof or worn carpeting, for example. In this way, buyers will have a better sense of how much these needed repairs will affect their costs.
- Have a termite inspection to prove to buyers that the property is not infested.
- Get a pre-sale home inspection so you’ll be able to make repairs before buyers become concerned and cancel a contract.
- Gather together warranties and guarantees on the furnace, appliances, and other items that will remain with the house.
- Fill out a disclosure form provided by your sales associate. Take the time to be sure that you don’t forget problems, however minor, that might create liability for you after the sale.

The Contract For Sale
A contract is created when there is a “meeting of the minds” on all terms. The contract is created when the buyer and seller have come to such agreement and signed the offer form along with any counter-offers and addenda. Real estate contracts must be in writing; verbal contracts to purchase real estate cannot be enforced. Prior to signing a contract to buy or sell real property it is important to understand all of the terms to which you may be obligating yourself.
Typically standard pre-printed purchase contract forms are utilized and filled out by the real estate agents handling the transaction or by the principals if there is no agent involved. While most buyers and sellers are usually fully aware of the terms such as price, closing date, and financial terms, there is a tendency to overlook much of the pre-printed portion of the form. Since all the terms of the contract can be binding it is important to understand all of the terms that you are agreeing to before you sign the contract. Not doing so can be a costly mistake, especially if there are problems or difficulties in the transaction.
Some of the items that you may be agreeing to when you sign the pre-printed form may include:
- What personal property will be included or excluded from the sale.
- Who will pay for required repairs or retrofits.
- What the seller’s disclosure obligations will be.
- What the seller’s obligation to maintain the property will be.
- What the seller is warranting about the property.
- What the buyer’s inspection rights will be.
- What will happen in the event either party does not comply with the contract.
- What will the parties’ legal rights and attorney fee provisions be in the event of a breach of contract.
It is highly recommended that you read and review the pre-printed forms used most commonly in your area before you write and sign an offer to purchase. Your real estate agent can provide you copies of the forms and should be willing to explain and review them with you. Once a bona-fide offer has been presented, your focus will be on issues such as price, terms, and closing date. By reviewing and understanding the purchase contract form ahead of time you can strengthen your negotiating position, protect yourself from incurring unnecessary costs or problems, and have a better understanding of what you will need to do to conclude the sale.
