  • How much will this cost?
  • Will this house work for what I want to do?
  • Will I be able to recuperate the expense when I sell?
  • Will my addition be permitted by local zoning/building ordinances and the Homeowner's Association?
  • Do I have the right personality to deal with the inconvenience, noise and disruption of my life?
  • Am I prepared for the extended period of time and unexpected costs of this project?

    Do sellers have to disclose the terms of other offers?
    Sellers are not legally obligated to disclose the terms of other offers to prospective buyers.

    How do I prepare the house for sale?
