There are several disclosure and agreemnents buyers and sellers are required to sign throughout the home buying/selling process. The first one I’ll explain is the NYS Agency Disclosure form. It’s quick, simple and painless. However, it’s quite intimidating for younger buyers to be asked by an unfamiliar face for a signature, especially when first meeting them.
The state requires that we have all parties sign this disclosure. It’s purpose is to make consumers aware of who the agent is working for. This is not a contract and does not bind any parties to any agent. It’s Simply a disclosure.
