Mistakes to Avoid When Buying a Home 4/8

Not Knowing and Understanding Your Rights and Obligations as Listed in the Offer to Purchase

Make it a priority to know your rights and obligations inside and out. A lack of understanding about your obligations may, at the very least, cause friction between yourself and the people with whom you are about to enter the contract with. Wrong assumptions, poorly written/incomprehensible/missing clauses, or a lack of awareness of how the clauses apply to the purchase could also contribute to increased costs. These problems may even lead to a void contract. So take the time to go through the contract, making use of the resources and knowledge offered by your Realtor® and lawyer. With their assistance, ensure you thoroughly understand EVERY component of the contract and are able to fulfill your contractual obligations.
