does a seller of a scottsdale home for sale have to disclose if it's haunted

There are rules on what a seller and their agent need to disclose to prospective buyers about their home for sale. In Scottsdale and the surrounding Phoenix towns, we use a comprehensive disclosure form that the seller needs to fill out called the Seller Property Disclosure Statement, or SPDS.

There is nothing on the Seller Property Disclosure Statement that asks the seller if they are aware that their house is haunted. In the 4 decades I've been selling homes in Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Carefree, North Phoenix, and surrounding areas, I've never come across a supposed haunted house. At least no one has disclosed it and I've never heard back from buyers telling me that a house they purchased was haunted.

If a seller felt that their house was…

where is the scottsdale real estate market heading for home buyers

If you’ve been a buyer trying to find a home and get your offer accepted, you’re probably tired of hearing the term “Supply and Demand”. But that is why you’re having a difficult time being up against multiple offers, including cash buyers. Some buyers have given up and are staying put in their current place, and some renters are signing a new lease.

Here is the Atlantic’s take on this crazy Seller’s Market:

“Pick a housing statistic at random, and it’s probably setting an all-time record. Home prices: record high. Inventory: record low. Percentage of homes selling above asking price: record high. Average time on market: record low.

Part of the issue comes amid an ongoing shortage of housing. Housing material costs are increasing and…

A Scottsdale home seller can benefit from a pre-inspectionTypically, the party who would pay to have a property formally inspected is the buyer. This step, however, far exceeds due diligence. Namely, before signing their name on the dotted line, a prospective buyer wants to establish the property’s assets and any potential liabilities. Uncovering any budding issues gives them the power to negotiate who pays for any necessary repairs or, in the worst-case scenario, even to walk away from the deal altogether. But what if you were to beat them to it? In a nutshell, getting a home inspection before listing your property increases your chances of having a smooth and pleasant transaction. But let us dive into it with a little more detail, shall we?
