Whose obligation is it to disclose pertinent information about a property? In most states, it is the seller, but obligations to disclose information about a property vary. Under the strictest laws, you and your agent, if you have one, are required to disclose all facts materially affecting the value or desirability of the property which are known or accessible only to you. This might include: homeowners association dues; whether or not work done on the house meets local building codes and permits requirements; the presence of any neighborhood nuisances or noises which a prospective buyer might not notice, such as a dog that barks every night or poor TV reception; any death within three years on the property; and any restrictions on the use of the property, such as zoning ordinances or association rules. It is wise to check your state's disclosure rules prior to a home purchase.

What my clients are saying  

When it was time to sell our home, we had the pleasure to work with Annerie Botha of Living Realty. Annerie was there every step of the way. She always answered every call, text or email. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much appreciated. Annerie knows Ashburn well. Her research, experience, market conditions and selling price analysis was on target. This resulted in multiple offers well above our original expectations. She also knew how to market our home using social media and beautiful flyers. The pictures on our listing were gorgeous! We were shocked when Annerie called within 1 hour of our first open house with an offer. We put our trust in Annerie and it paid off. Annerie, thank you for being so helpful and professional with the sale of our house. We appreciate your dedication to excellence and determination to make this process easy for us. Thank you again. You will always remain a dear friend to us and we would highly recommend you to anyone!

Annerie is the most compassionate and knowledgable Realtor I have worked with in 12 years of the business. She was relentless in finding me the home of my dreams and understood exactly what I wanted in regards to location, house and price. Her compassion and understanding of the market is what truly seperates her from the competition ! I would highly recommend her to everyone looking for that perfect dream home combined with a great deal.

I would highly recommend Annerie to anyone. She took care of both my sell and buy transactions and made it really easy for me. She understands what buyers are looking for and made very helpful staging suggestions which helped me sell faster and get a higher price when selling. She was very patient while looking for a property and never tried to push a higher price - something a lot of other realtors do. Overall I was ver impressed and would recommend her to anyone.
