If you’re selling a house for the first time (or heck… even for the second or third time), then you’re probably wondering what paperwork is required to sell your home.
That’s a common question we get at Simpatico Properties , where we’ve worked for many years in Hagerstown buying and selling real estate.
And since we’ve got a good bit of experience, we thought we’d help.
Here is the main paperwork you’ll need to worry about when selling your home.
- Home Appraisal (from when you purchased the home)
- Mortgage and Financing Documents
- Original Sales Contract (from when you purchased the home)
- Property Survey (if applicable)
- Certificate of Occupancy (if applicable)
- Tax Records
- HOA Documents (if applicable)
- Listing Agreement (if using a real estate agent)
- Market Analysis & Marketing Materials (often done by real estate agent)
- Easement Agreements (if applicable)
- Statutory Disclosure Forms
- Purchase Offer (made by potential buyer and/or their real estate agent)
- Final Purchase & Sale Agreement (when offer is accepted)
- Affidavit of Title
- Transfer Tax Declarations
- Estimated Closing Statement
- Deed To Home
- Release of Mortgage Lien
- Title Report
- Title Insurance
- Warranty & Maintenance Receipts
- Bill of Sale
We know that’s a lot of paperwork… but selling a home isn’t a walk in the park — there are a lot of moving parts to keep in mind.
You can get more details on each document by searching in Google.
