I'm selling a single-family investment property that I haven't seen in years. I have no knowledge of the property’s condition. Do I have to fill out a seller's disclosure?
Yes. The Texas Property Code requires a seller of residential real property comprising not more than one dwelling unit to provide a seller’s disclosure notice to the buyer. Although the Property Code does provide certain exceptions to this requirement, a seller never seeing or living in the property is not one of them. After all, knowledge of the property can come from sources other than a visual examination, such as complaints from tenants or reports from property managers. If a seller is unaware of any particular condition of the property, the seller can indicate that on the notice.
Failing to provide a completed seller’s disclosure notice to a buyer may entitle the buyer to certain remedies, like terminating the contract.

For our Purchasing Clients: we make sure you have access to EVERY home (not just those we list, or the three or four that we think you might like); and we will never pressure you.
For our Selling Clients: we market the heck out of your home; we give you updates on what we've done to sell your property every week along with feedback and activity on the home; we can also lease your property should it fail to sell--seamlessly. Finally, if you're ever unhappy with us, or your circumstances change, you can cancel our agreement.

"I love the service my family and I received at The Real Estate Market Place, We were recommended by the Dave Ramsey program. Our Realtor took a lot of time with us and was very patient to go through every option with us. We felt they were always keeping our best interest in mind. He was always friendly and honest. We could have bought a far more expensive house but he encouraged us to make a wise finical decision that would not overwhelm us. We had a wonderful experience!
