I was taken back by this question, mostly because if you have a Realtor, why are you asking me this question. None the less, here is the answer. To save headaches later, you should always ask your Realtor to call on anything that you are interested in that is Real Estate related. Much like you would direct all questions or discussions that may have legal implications to your attorney or medical concerns to your Doctor. The Realtor (Real Estate Agent) is working in your best interest, they represent you on these matters and understand the industry lingo and negotiations, use them to your advantage, they are usually more than willing to help out.
Any Realtor that is reading this, please let this be a reminder to have the discussion with your clients about representation and precuring cause. It’s important that our clients know that we’re here for them and that they should feel free to call us to help them with their real estate needs.
If you are selling your home, the same is true here as well. If someone starts to ask you questions about your home, you should direct them to your agent. That way you don’t say something that might be leveraged against you, like that you have to move or that you are fighting with your neighbors. We want to help you get as much from your home as possible and that means disclosing what we have to and keeping to ourselves that doesn’t pertain to the transaction.
