Michigan Realtors FAQ

Before selling a home, it’s important to ensure you’re listed as the legal owner of the property. This may seem cut and dry; however, certain events may have impacted someone’s ownership of a property. For example, if someone was previously married to another individual, then remarried later on, the previous spouse may be a listed owner as opposed to the current spouse.

Generally speaking, the title company whom the home buyer is working with will check these details during the selling process; however, it’s usually better to take action yourself and be sure.

In order to determine if you or your spouse is listed as a legal owner of the home, you can start by checking the property’s deed. Typically a copy of this deed is mailed to your address by your local county’s Registrar of Deeds after purchasing the property.

If you cannot locate a copy of the deed, then you should be able to request another one from the Register of Deeds. For example, if you purchased your home in Northville, the Wayne County Register of Deeds should have a copy of this legal document. You can simply search for their office online then either visit their website, call them, or visit them in person and request it.

If you’re selling a home in Michigan, there’s a specific law which requires you to provide a Seller’s Disclosure Statement to the buyer of the property. The law that requires a seller to produce this statement is known as Michigan’s Seller Disclosure Act.

Simply put, this disclosure statement is for the owner of the property to provide any necessary details about the home prior to completion of the sale. Necessary details may include: condition of the home, problems with electrical systems, problems with heating or cooling, etc.

There are many aspects involved with selling homes some of which are specific to the State of Michigan. For instance, you need to choose a price that’s low enough to attract buyers, yet high enough to provide adequate monetary compensation. You also need an avenue to market your home, ideally, one that’s cost-effective and doesn’t significantly consume the margins on your return.

You also need to consider legal aspects such as tax code updates, local city ordinances, Michigan real estate laws, and more. You can refer to our Michigan home selling guide for more information on this topic.

All in all, the process of selling a property is fairly complicated and has many potential pitfalls. If you aren’t highly experienced with this process. Working with an experienced Michigan Realtor can save you a great deal of time and effort and maximize the returns of your real estate transaction.

Buying a home is either one of the most exciting or stressful experiences, perhaps a little of both for most people. This is a particularly emotional experience for first-time home buyers. Finding the perfect fit typically takes a great deal of effort. This includes research, pricing, location, getting pre-approved for a mortgage, home inspections, negotiations, and more. The major steps involved with buying a home include:

1. Research (i.e. price, type of home, location, community)

2. Making An Offer

3. Home Inspections & Seller’s Disclosure Statement

4. Closing

Each of these steps have many aspects and legal requirements involved with them. You can refer to our Michigan home buying guide for more information.

Working with a professionally licensed Real Estate Agent can help streamline this process and take a great deal of the burden off you while searching for your home.

Buying or selling a home is a huge decision that will likely impact your future for years to come. As a result, you should carefully choose the real estate professional you work with. Unfortunately, this isn’t always easy since there are millions of active real estate licensees and misleading marketing campaigns that exaggerate credentials. The key is to check more than one source when researching a potential agent or brokerage.

Here are some considerations when searching for the top rated Realtors in your area:

Credentials – Are they professionally licensed real estate agents?

Reputation – Do they have a reputation for success and treating clients well?

Reviews – Check their reviews on Google, Zillow, Yelp, and other third party review sites

Local Expertise – Do they have expertise within your desired local real estate markets

Experience – How many years of successful experience do they have?

Results – How many homes have they sold within the last several years?
