Now is the prime time to buy or sell a home. If you are doing either, here are a few things to consider or put in the contract.
• Finance terms: Full disclosure of finance terms will help you avoid problems down the road.
• Closing costs: Determine ahead of time who covers common fees associated with the home purchase. Hint: It’s not always the buyer.
• Fixtures and appliances: Love that deco wall sconce? Can’t part with your wine cooler? Make sure to include these items in your contract.
• Inspection deadlines: Make sure all deadlines are spelled out to avoid any delay.
