RI Homes Sold with Wrong Number of Bedrooms

Rhode Island Homes for Sale Sold with Inaccurate Bedroom Numbers Is Wrong for the Buyers

 

In this RI real estate market, it is heated and move in ready with water view homes and no flood insurance is a great listing to have.  Yet listing agents do not always do their due diligence to identify whether a home has the right number of bedrooms to share with home buyers.  Listing a home with higher number of bedrooms to make it more enticing to buyers is wrong yet it ri water view real estatehappens often...I always say as a buyers' agent do your homework, trust your own research and do not take the sellers sales disclosures as the right piece of information on a home.  

A buyers' agent owes their clients due diligence of the utmost.  It pains me to go on a pre-listing appointment and talk to the homeowners about selling a home and tell them their home is not a legal 3 bedroom home but a 2 bedroom.  They are upset beyond belief because their representation when they bought the home did not uncover and research the true home facts.  Know your home information.

 

Now what are some of the items as a buyer you need to look out for?

- number of bedrooms according to the septic system installed on the State's web site.

- number of 'above' ground bedrooms (no basement bedrooms) in the home.

- no walk through bedrooms...i.e. bedroom connected to bedroom without a hallway.

- closets in a bedroom (this may be different state to state)

 

There are many home sellers who want to gloss over the true facts and it is an omission and I always say buyers beware.  Do your own true sleuthing and offer a price based upon the facts you can determine.  Ask an appraiser because you will certainly find out the hard facts once the appraiser reviews the house for your loan.  Hearing that the house price does not match the price for the number of legal bedrooms to justify your offer is a hard fact to learn later (and the sellers will not negotiate).  

 

In selling the highest Warwick RI home in 2017, I was sure to do my homework right up to closing time for my home buyers.  Calling the town hall, checking in with the state departments on sewers, ensuring no liens on the property, checking on building permits, etc.  This is what you deserve and should expect from you real estate specialist.

 

As a trusted real estate agent it 'frosts' me when I do my due diligence for clients and it is listed incorrectly in the multiple listing service.  It is knowledge that you want and the right know how to make your decision.
