Be Up Front About Your Home

While your agent may not be responsible for disclosing material facts about your property to potential buyers, they can be held accountable if they had knowledge of a problem that they failed to make known or tried to hide. Agents are not expected to take on the role of a home inspector. However, an agent should use their best judgment and bring up anything that seems suspicious with both the seller and buyer.

The seller is not obligated to tell a buyer why they are putting their home up for sale. However, failure to disclose a large issue may complicate or delay the sale, frustrating all parties involved.
If there is a problem with your property, it is a good idea to either get it fixed prior to sale or lower your asking price to cover any necessary renovations.
