Forms You Will Need to Review Before Someone Makes an Offer on You House:
RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY AND OWNERS’ ASSOCIATION DISCLOSURE STATEMENT
G.S. 47E requires owners of residential real estate (single-family homes and buildings with up to four dwelling units) to furnish purchasers a property disclosure statement. This form is the only one approved for this purpose.
Buying a home is an important investment and a complex process. Selling your home requires care and expertise. A Realtor® brings professional expertise, local knowledge and trustworthy information.
Whether it’s your first home or you’re trading up, and whether you’re moving across town or across the country, connect with a Realtor® to get the best value for your investment.
The term “Realtor®” is a registered collective membership mark identifying a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of Realtors® and who also is affiliated with a state and local Realtor® association.
A Realtor® is different from a real estate licensee. All individuals legally practicing real estate in the US are licensed, but not all are Realtors®. Only Realtors® subscribe to a strict code of ethics that goes beyond what is required by law. Before engaging the services of a real estate professional, ask if he or she is a Realtor®.
