When selling your home, the more information you have about your home and property the easier it is to sell. From maps to water tests to septic documentations this type of information makes the buyer comfortable about what they are proposing to buy. When transparency isn't there, it can make a buyer question why this information isn't available and can cause them to think there may be a problem.
Even though you may not have been involved in the process of many of these systems, there are always options available to find out this information. It can be as simple as speaking to the neighbor that lived next door for 40 years. Many questions have been answered through a casual conversation over a pot of coffee. There are also agencies available that can assist with things like Wett tests to check out your fireplace to seasoned home inspectors that have dealt with many different types of scenarios over the years. Doing your homework can save many hours if not weeks of delays that could cost you the sale of your home. So the more information you can provide to your realtor, the smoother the transition will occur.
