Buying Tip: There have recently been changes to the Tallahassee Board of Realtors contract. The biggest change is inspections. If you are in a regular sale (not foreclosure or short sale and it isn't as-is) then once an inspection is done, you would submit a "Notification of Repairs Request" form where you would list the warranted items that need to be fixed. If there are non-warranted items that would be put on a separate addendum later. Warranted items include heating, cooling, electrical, plumbing, appliances, well, septic, pool, and spa. The previous form we had in place was an "Inspection Addendum" form where you could ask for both warranted and unwarranted items and was an actual addendum to the contract. Another change is that the wood destroying organisms report used to be a seller's cost and would be done after the first 15 days of the contract to ensure the deal is going through because the reports are only valid for 30 days. Now it is a buyer's cost and it is another inspection done within the first 15 days of the contract and added to the Notification of Repairs Request. It is still the same that if the amount of repairs or treatment is over 2% of the purchase price then it opens it up for renegotiating. In an as-is sale it would be the same as it has been because the buyer would still do all inspection and any repairs. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
