Sedona City Streets  how2arizona real estate

Sedona City Street Map

The City of Sedona publishes online maps for streets.  In black are those streets that are maintained by the City, while the blue lines indicate those privately owned and maintained.

If you are buying a property in Sedona, it may be wise to have a survey done if you find that you own the street.  It is possible that your property line goes into the middle of the road.

If you click on the “maps for streets” it will link you to the City of Sedona site.  The purpose of the article is disclosure.  While most people live in areas where all streets are maintained by the city, many of Sedona’s are private.  Any repairs, resurfacing, or liability may be that of the owner.  Ask questions when you purchase.  Check with your insurance company.

Blue lines indicate private streets.

Sedona Private Streets how2arizona real estate

Blue:  Private Streets

The black lines indicate City-Maintained streets, while the blue lines indicate Private ones.

Suggestion:  if you are considering the purchase of a property with private streets, be certain to have a survey.  In many cases where there is no HOA, your new property line may run to the middle of the street.  So runs your maintenance and your liability.  Discuss the issue with your insurance agent.

REALTOR CODE OF ETHICS

Ever wonder what working with a REALTOR(R) means to you, a home buyer or seller?

This month I taught 2 of my favorite real estate continuing education classes to Arizona REALTORS(R):   The Ethics of Dual Agency and Coding the Contract = Client Care.  Then yesterday two licensees asked me when I would be teaching my Ethics courses again…

I was first certified to teach the Code of Ethics back in 1989.

But, can you teach ethical behavior?

We can teach someone choices of behavior… usually pointing out consequences for bad behavior; but, can an educator “teach” ethical behavior?

Definition of a Code of Ethics:  ”A written set of guidelines issued by an organization to its workers and management to help them conduct their actions in accordance with its primary values and ethical standards.

If you are a REALTOR(R) or are working with one, consider the following:

Not Everything Did I Learn in Kindergarten…

Yesterday I had the privilege and pleasure of attending one of the best real estate continuing education classes ever.  25 years.  The class was put on by Lin Ferrara of Eagle University, First American Title, and featured Bill Gray of Arizona School of Real Estate and Business, along with our very own, Jim Sexton, of John Hall.  The class was “The Code Rules” with a certificate for 3 hours of Commissioner’s Standards.  It didn’t stop there!  That same class gave all REALTOR® attendees their “Quadrennial Code of Ethics Training”…yes!  Double value!

So what did I learn other than what I learned in kindergarten?

First, we need to review that insightful poem by Robert Fulghum which was read by Jim Sexton at the closing of the class:

  • Share everything
  • Play fair
  • Don’t hit people
  • Put things back where you found them
  • Clean up your own mess
  • Don’t take things that aren’t yours
  • Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody
  • Wash your hands before you eat
  • Flush
  • Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you
  •  Live a balanced life
  • Learn some and think some
  • And draw and paint and sing and dance
  • And play and work everyday some
  • Take a nap every afternoon
  • When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic
  • Hold hands and stick together
  • Be aware of wonder

“Be aware of wonder.”  My personal favorite.

After 25 years in the real estate business as a salesperson, a broker, a trainer, an educator, a past member of the Arizona Real Estate Advisory Board, and an ardent believer that “if you can dream it, you can do it!”, I was profoundly moved and reminded of what professionalism means through the Code of Ethics and our Arizona statutes and rules.

What did I learn?  Some things…

Article 1:  I should never use the term “free” when I advertise my buyer-broker-value to a prospective client.  Nothing in life is “free”.

Article 2:  I must disclose what I know about my listing, but I am not required to investigate beyond my “standard of care”.  Apparent is something I can see.  Latent is different.

Article 3:  If I am not a member of a board/association, I must contact the listing agent before showing a property to see if the listing agent will be cooperative with me and pay me.  Until we have a statewide MLS, I could work for “free” if I’m not careful.

I must understand what a variable rate commission means and alert other brokers to put on their “best game” if I represent the seller, and a buyer, at a reduced commission, in a multiple offer situation.

Article 4:  I must disclose any interest I have or any interest my family has in a property.  If I can’t legally marry them (or remarry them), I should disclose them.

Article 5:  If I want to purchase a property so I can “flip” it, I should not undervalue it if asked by the seller to give it a value.  “Flipping” is okay.  Under-puffing the goods is not.

Article 6:  I must disclose the $xx “bonus” I get from the home warranty company for selling or giving a home warranty at closing.

Article 7:  I must get the approval of my buyer for my broker to receive a “bonus” from the listing broker if my buyer buys the listed property.

Article 8:  I must follow my broker’s office policies about earnest deposits and not keep client cash or checks in my desk drawer.  I must turn over these monies to my broker to keep in the broker trust account so the broker can account for these monies to the client.  Better than me losing the cash or the checks!!

Article 9:  I must leave you, my client, with a copy of any agreements, so I will email the pdf file to you after we have written and signed it.  Digital is great!  Save a tree!  We all have digital abilities through ZipForms, eSignatures, and the Internet.  Life is good.

Article 10:  I must never discriminate.  If you are red, yellow, black, brown, green, single with children, gay, lesbian, Irish, Jewish, male or female, legally blind or different from me, I should find you a house.

Article 11:   I will continue not to do certain types of real estate, like business broker biz or property management, because I don’t give it my best.  I will refer business if I cannot properly service a client according to the standard of care.  I will let my client know that we will do things differently if I cannot be as good as I can be.  I want Christmas cards every year.

Article 12:  If I advertise “free” anything, I need to explain the terms and conditions.  “Free, but…”

Article 13:  I should not overstep my 26th AZ Constitution Amendment abilities by giving legal advice on issues that I do not have expertise on, in, or around.  Attorneys are good.

Article 14:  If I am accused of being a bad REALTOR®, I’ll participate in the process so I can show I’m a good REALTOR®.

Article 15:  Don’t talk “stink” about competitors.  Don’t leave verbal cleat marks on the backs of competitors to get a listing or gain a buyer.

Article 16:  I can go door-to-door with door hangers and put them on a door with a sign on the property if I am doing all doors in the area.  It’s like mailing postcards…

Article 17:  If I cannot get along with, disagree with, or am having a dispute with, another REALTOR®, I will submit it to the REALTOR® family to settle.

I learned that the reason I am still in real estate after 25 years is because of the REALTOR® Code of Ethics, and because of those of you who were in the class.  We learn, participate, and teach others, and in doing so, raise the bar of professionalism.

We are a profession.

The Difference Between the Bronze and the Gold

money problems

A message for you and me.  A lady I most admire and met on Twitter just published this letter.

Hi Kathy: 

I just got back from the first part of a two-week speaking tour. I love talking to business and investor groups. It’s good to catch up on what’s been going on with some of the people I haven’t seen for a few years. 

Here’s the short version. Things got really bad. And then they got better. The rest of this email is going to be about two stories I heard, and the lessons I heard from these people that have bounced back. 

In the first case, it was a man who had sold a couple of successful businesses and was really set – big house, cars, boat and even his own plane. Then someone showed up with one more big idea and he bought in. It was a disastrous partnership. The guy wasn’t who he appeared to be and his problems pulled my friend down too. He lost everything but his family and a handful of true friends. 

I know there are a lot of people who got hit hard by the economic crash and real estate downturn. My friend said he knew he wasn’t the only person in this spot and he told me a story he’d heard that made all the difference for him. 

Two skiers in the Paraolympics skied downhill. Both were amputees. One fell, and got a bronze medal. The interesting point is that the gold medalist fell in exactly the same spot. So why did one get gold and one get bronze? 

The gold medalist got up faster.

We all fall. We all hit rough patches. You decide what you do with that. Winners get up faster. 

In the second case, a good friend of mine got caught up in a situation where a numbskull sued her. It’s made even worse because my friend had been trying to help this other person. Has that ever happened to you? You try to help someone who needs it, and then it all backfires. In this case, she got sued. She won the case. But it cost her over $100,000 in legal fees. There is no one to countersue to get her money back. 

I don’t know about you, but needing to find $100K to defend myself against a charge of something I didn’t do, would make me mad. And that would stop my progress. My friend embarked on a 28 day program of daily gratitude exercises to find the part in that experience that she could be grateful for. 

Whatever is stopping you now, whatever is keeping you up at night worrying and whatever knocked you down – you can get back up again. It all comes down to just doing it. To getting up one more time than you get knocked down. To turning your back on the hurts and hang-ups. 

Maybe all that’s stopping you is someone who believes in you. 

I believe in you. I know you can do it, because I have the experience of seeing so many others do it. 

In the next few weeks, I’m going to talk about a couple of new projects I’m taking on. If you want to follow what I’m doing, you’re welcome to do it. If you want to join one of my teams, I’d love to tell you more and we can jointly decide if it’s a good fit for you.

Warmly,

Diane Kennedy - CPA, Tax Strategist

P.S. Something heard over the weekend: “An excuse is the skin of a lie stuffed with reason.”
Like Diane, I believe in you.  Let me help you with your real estate needs – allow me to help you monetize your investment.

You can make it…

There are 15 counties in the state of Arizona. Four counties (Mohave, Pima, Yavapai and Yuma) were created in 1864 following the organization of the Arizona Territory in 1862. All but La Paz County were created by the time Arizona was granted statehood in 1912.

The names of many of the counties pay tribute to the state’s Native American heritage. Nine of the fifteen counties are named after various native groups that are resident in parts of what is now Arizona. Three of the other counties have Spanish names from the language of the early Hispanic explorers of Arizona: La Paz CountySanta Cruz County, and Pinal County. Another county, Graham County, is named for a physical feature, Mount Graham, with the final county,Greenlee County, being named after one of the state’s early pioneers.

Rancho Shangri La is located halfway between “The Trout Farm” and “Slide Rock State Park” along SR89A.

A bit of history:

Slide Rock State Park, originally the Pendley Homestead, is a 43-acre historical apple farm…. Frank L. Pendley, having arrived in the canyon in 1907, formally acquired the land under the Homestead Act in 1910. Due to his pioneering innovation, he succeeded where others failed by establishing a unique irrigation system still in use by the park today. This allowed Pendley to plant his first apple orchard in 1912, beginning the pattern of agricultural development that has dominated the site since that time. Pendley also grew garden produce and kept some livestock.

Historical weather of the area:  click here.

From Wikipedia:

Oak Creek Canyon is a river gorge located along the Mogollon Rim in northern Arizona between the cities of Flagstaff and Sedona. The canyon is often described as a smaller cousin of the Grand Canyon because of its scenic beauty. State Route 89A enters the canyon on its north end via a series of hairpin turns before traversing the bottom of the canyon for about 13 miles (20.8 kilometers) until the highway enters the town of Sedona…

… is about 12 miles (19.2 km) long, ranging in width from 0.8 to 2.5 miles (1.3 to 4 km). The depth of the canyon ranges from 800-2,000 feet (240 to 600 meters). However, due to the faulting that played a major role in its formation, the west rim of the canyon is 700 feet (210 meters) higher than the east rim. The average elevation of the west rim is 7,200 feet (2,160 meters) while the east rim elevation is 6,500 feet (1,950 m)

Oak Creek, a tributary of the Verde River, flows along the bottom of the canyon, and is one of the few perennial streams in the high desert region of northern Arizona…”

Further up the road is West Fork, one of the most awesome places in the fall.  Reds, oranges, greens, chartreuses, dark greens…  But it has many, many hikers and visitors during the rest of the year.  Located just north of Sedona… West Fork is the most popular hiking trail in the Coconino National Forest and possibly the most scenic in Arizona. It is a perfect hiking trail in all seasons.

There’s so much more to tell you about this beautiful property… why not call Kathy Howe for a showing?

Negative Home Equity

It appears that Arizona still has a way to go to recover from the housing market decline.  But the translation is that there may be many great buys for those who are looking for properties, either for use as principal residence, secondary residence, or investment.

From a report from AZCentral.com, during the summer of 2011, shows that the “underwater” or negative home equity amount for Arizona homeowners averaged “$60,000″.  The real estate market in Sedona includes many short sales and foreclosures.  That is also true for most of the Verde Valley.

So now is the time for you to take advantage of buying a Sedona or Verde Valley property and begin a live of red rock vistas, small town living, and outdoor living throughout the year.

“Kathy, again thank you, thank you for your encouragement and support in this process.  It’s more than a job to you and we appreciate your patience and overwhelming enthusiasm of Sedona.  That really sold us.  A building site in this area was not a consideration and being non AZ bumpkins we sort of had an idea of what we wanted but truly had no clue.  YOU sold the neighborhood and that is what we really wanted.  At this point in our lives, we don’t want to be secluded with a gorgeous view.  Uptown is close to most things we need and when we finally build and live there can investigate the rest depending on our needs.
Thank you Ms. Kathy.  Love ya”

Water Quality Report

WATER QUALITY

ARIZONA WATER COMPANY

If you live in Sedona, AZ, you will be served by a private water company.  See our related post.  Knowing and understanding the potential health affects of Sedona’s drinking and bathing water should be investigated prior to purchasing property in Arizona, particularly if you are purchasing a property that has a well or if you are planning to drill a well.  Water quality is important.

Here is a report concerning the new Arizona Water Company surcharge and its relevance to new arsenic standards.

Arsenic levels in the US.

EPA’s Arsenic Information:  Click here.

EPA’s drinking water quality standards:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for inorganic arsenic in drinking water at 0.05 mg/L (mg/L = parts per million or ppm). Drinking water that meets the current standard is associated with little or no risk and should be considered safe with respect to arsenic. However, this standard is currently under review and the MCL may be decreased in the future.”

Arsenic Arizona Water Quality

Removal of arsenic:  ”The most reliable water treatment processes for arsenic removal are reverse osmosis and distillation. Of the two processes, reverse osmosis devices are less costly, take less time, and use less energy than distillation devices. Reverse osmosis devices can be installed at the point of entry (for the entire household water supply) or for drinking water only. Treating all of the household water will be considerably more expensive than treating drinking water only. Many water treatment companies sell or rent reverse osmosis devices and offer maintainence agreements.”

Click here for the Coconino Water Quality Report (including Sedona) which rates Sedona 6 out of 10.  Many options are available to improve your water quality and remove arsenic and we have listed but a few resources in this post.  A starting place.  Before you purchase, do your independent research.

FYI.  If you have a septic system or an alternative waste system, check with experts on what affect the filtration system might have on the waste facility.  Depending on who you talk to or which side of the issue you read, there will be many varied opinions.  One thing that does seem to be common: raising the salt water discharge into the waste system may upset the ph level necessary for the bacteria do do their job.  Ask an expert.

WATER QUALITY MATTERS

From the Arizona Department of Health Services comes this brochure on arsenic in Arizona. Click here.

From the University of Arizona comes this water quality warning (especially if you are going to own or drill a well):

  • Determine if you have an Arsenic problem
  • Research the technology….will it handle your Arsenic problem?
  • Contact a responsible, ethical vendor/provider and discuss your needs.
  • Get an estimate of costs……water chemistry testing by vendor,
  • installation, routine periodic maintenance and monitoring……..in writing.
  • Periodically have your treated water “product” tested by an independent,
  • certified lab to be sure your technology does what it claims to do

And then:

  • Test your well water regularly….including Arsenic
  • Determine the level of Arsenic contamination and what is your exposure level to Arsenic.
  • If you are experiencing any health problems which could be caused by excessive exposure to Arsenic…. consult your family physician or Arizona Department of Health Services.
  • If your well water Arsenic tests exceed 10ppb, stop drinking it…move to a safer source of water for drinking and cooking while you come up with a plan

Not Everything Did I Learn In Kindergarten

Kindergarten

The REALTOR(r) Code of Ethics

Yesterday I had the privilege and pleasure of attending one of the best real estate continuing education classes ever. 25 years. The class was put on by Lin Ferrara of Eagle University, First American Title, and featured Bill Gray of Arizona School of Real Estate and Business, along with our very own, Jim Sexton, of John Hall. The class was “The Code Rules” with a certificate for 3 hours of Commissioner’s Standards. It didn’t stop there! That same class gave all REALTOR® attendees their “Quadrennial Code of Ethics Training”…yes! Double value!  REALTORS(r) rock!!

REALTOR

So what did I learn other than what I learned in kindergarten?

First, we need to review that insightful poem by Robert Fulghum which was read by Jim Sexton at the closing of the class:
  • “…
  •  Share everything
  •  Play fair
  •  Don’t hit people
  •  Put things back where you found them
  •  Clean up your own mess
  •  Don’t take things that aren’t yours
  •  Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody
  •  Wash your hands before you eat
  •  Flush
  •  Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you
  •  Live a balanced life
  •  Learn some and think some
  •  And draw and paint and sing and dance
  •  And play and work everyday some
  •  Take a nap every afternoon
  •  When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic
  •  Hold hands and stick together
  •  Be aware of wonder
…”

“Be aware of wonder.” My personal favorite.

After 25 years in the real estate business as a REALTOR(r), salesperson, a broker, a trainer, an educator, a past member of the Arizona Real Estate Advisory Board, and an ardent believer that “if you can dream it, you can do it!”, I was profoundly moved and reminded of what professionalism means through the REALTOR(r) Code of Ethics and our Arizona statutes and rules.
REALTOR

The REALTOR(r) Code of Ethics

What did I learn?

Article 1: I should never use the term “free” when I advertise my buyer-broker-value to a prospective client. Nothing in life is “free”.
Article 2: I must disclose what I know about my listing, but I am not required to investigate beyond my “standard of care”. Apparent is something I can see. Latent is different.
Article 3: If I am not a member of a board/association, I must contact the listing agent before showing a property to see if the listing agent will be cooperative with me and pay me (written agreement for commission). Until we have a statewide MLS, I could work for “free” if I’m not careful.
Note:  I must understand what a variable rate commission means and alert other brokers to put on their “best game” if I represent the seller, and a buyer, at a reduced commission, in a multiple offer situation.
Article 4: I must disclose any interest I have or any interest my family has in a property. If I can’t legally marry them (or remarry them), I should disclose them.
Article 5: If I want to purchase a property so I can “flip” it, I should not undervalue it if asked by the seller to give it a value. “Flipping” is okay. Under-puffing the goods is not.
Article 6: I must disclose the $xx “bonus” I get from the home warranty company for selling or giving a home warranty at closing.
Article 7: I must get the approval of my buyer for my broker to receive a “bonus” from the listing broker if my buyer buys the listed property.
Article 8: I must follow my broker’s office policies about earnest deposits and not keep client cash or checks in my desk drawer. I must turn over these monies to my broker to keep in the broker trust account so the broker can account for these monies to the client, deposit them with an escrow company Better than me losing the cash or the checks!!
Article 9: I must leave you, my client, with a copy of any agreements, so I will email the pdf file to you after we have written and signed it. Digital is great! Save a tree! We all have digital abilities through ZipForms, eSignatures, and the Internet. Life is good.
Article 10: I must never discriminate. If you are red, yellow, black, brown, green, single with children, gay, lesbian, Irish, Jewish, male or female, legally blind or different from me, I should find you a house (and treat you all equally)
Article 11: I will continue not to do certain types of real estate, like business broker biz or property management, because I don’t give it my best. I will refer business if I cannot properly service a client according to the standard of care. I will let my client know that we will do things differently if I cannot be as good as I can be. I want Christmas cards every year.
Article 12: If I advertise “free” anything, I need to explain the terms and conditions. “Free, but…”
Article 13: I should not overstep my 26th AZ Constitution Amendment abilities by giving legal advice on issues that I do not have expertise on, in, or around. Attorneys are good.
Article 14: If I am accused of being a bad REALTOR®, I’ll participate in the process so I can show I’m a good REALTOR®.
Article 15: Don’t talk “stink” about competitors. Don’t leave verbal cleat marks on the backs of competitors to get a listing or gain a buyer.
Article 16: I can go door-to-door with door hangers and put them on a door with a sign on the property if I am doing all doors in the area. It’s like mailing postcards…
Article 17: If I cannot get along with, disagree with, or am having a dispute with, another REALTOR®, I will submit it to the REALTOR® family to settle.
REALTOR
I learned that the reason I am still in real estate, and a REALTOR(r), after 25 years is because of the REALTOR® Code of Ethics, and because of those of you who were in the class. We learn, participate, and teach others, and in doing so, raise the bar of professionalism.
REALTOR
We are a profession.  I am proud to be a member of the real estate profession.

Coconino County Septic System Worksheet

Coconino County Alternative Waste Disposal System worksheet when sewer hook-up is not available.

Use this worksheet when trying to decide what size waste system you will need when your build your dream home.


Coconino County

One note to be concerned with is the notation that in Coconino County, any room that is 70 square feet is considered a bedroom for the purpose of computing septic or alternative waste system size.

Whether you purchase one of the many Sedona homes, lots, or properties for sale in the Uptown, Palisades, Chapel Area, the Coconino County Rules will prevail.  See the map bifurcating Sedona into 2 separate counties:  Coconino County and Yavapai County.  The City of Sedona has its rules as well.

Coconino County

COCONINO COUNTY WEBSITE

Consulting with your contractor about the need for a good engineer when you build your dream home, or consulting with the engineer before you decide to remodel the dream home you have purchased will go along way in saving you money if you do not have sewer hook-up.

Procedures for your Coconino County site evaluation.

Coconino County remodel or addition requirements.

If you are purchasing a Sedona home for sale, it is wise to ask the listing agent for a copy of the Coconino County alternative waste disposal system approval.  There’s a lot of information to gain and you may wish to know about the system before you purchase rather than finding yourself in the middle of a due diligence period without time to understand the system and what it will cost to maintain.

Find Criminals Living Near You

A website that shows you criminals, felons, living near you…

criminalsWhen buyers are looking for properties to purchase, they seldom look at the makeup of the neighbors or the neighborhood until the inspection period.  Many times the concern is only for child molesters.  Criminals and felons?  Not often do buyers know where to search and Police Departments do not usually make the information available.  Crime rates, yes.  The addresses of criminals, no.  Click here.  Find felons living near you, friends, family…

We don’t know the accuracy of the information derived from this site, but it does have more information than most websites givecriminals prospective buyers about criminals.

Determining the neighborhood that works for you is important; and, it is very important to you to know if criminals might be close by.  Some offenders may be of little consequences, but some, such as rapists or pedophiles may make a difference to your decision to purchase.

How does Sedona rank with criminals and their activity as compared to Arizona and the US?  Below both.

SEDONA CRIMINALS

Investigate your neighborhood before you purchase.  Under the AAR residential purchase contract, there is a 10 day inspection period which includes the physical inspection of the property and the all-round due diligence connected with the property.  Time and comprehensive due diligence is important.  Be sure to check out your soon-to-be new neighborhood.

Does “As Is” Mean No Seller Property Disclosure?

Seller Property Disclsoure

In Arizona we use Hill v. Jones as our foundation for seller property disclosure.

“A seller has an affirmative duty to disclose material facts which adversely affect the value of the property.” Arizona Court of Appeals, 151 Ariz. 81, 725 P.2d 1115 (1986).

Recently we have begun to see more sellers using the “as is” addendum in traditional sales (not just REOs and foreclosures).  What does this mean to buyers?

Another Arizona case describes “as is” and its impact on a transaction:  S Development Company v. Pima Capital Management Co.

“We hold that latent defects in a property sold “as is” that are known to the vendor must be disclosed to the purchaser.   We also hold that a vendor may be held liable for negligent nondisclosure of facts basic to the transaction when the purchaser is precluded by the vendor from discovering those facts.”  These words reaffirm Hill v. Jones.  Sellers cannot say they have made all disclosures and then not allow the buyer an inspection period.

Further in S Development Company v. Pima Capital Management Co., “…Consequently, absent fraud or misrepresentation, a contractual agreement to accept real property “as is” with the right to inspect defeats liability…”

What is the difference between a latent defect and a patent defect as it affects property disclsoure?

Patent comes from the word “apparent”; therefore, a patent defect is one that can be discovered visible or by an inspection.

Latent defects are described as:  “a hidden flaw, weakness or imperfection in an article which a seller knows about, but the buyer cannot discover by reasonable inspection.” – the Free Legal Dictionary

“As Is” in Arizona has always been upheld as “caveat emptor” or “buyer beware”, if 2 things happen:  1)  seller discloses latent material information; and 2)  buyer is allowed an inspection period.

Recently this story came out from Inman News (one of real estate’s top news organizations) about “as is” as it applies to Alabama real estate transactions.  Teer v. Johnston

As a buyer it is highly recommended that you and your agent discuss the ramifications of signing an “as is” addendum.  The onus of proof that the seller committed fraud or misrepresentation is on the shoulders of the buyer.  While the proof may be at hand, the courts may make a “caveat emptor” decision.

If asked to sign an “as is” addendum, try to write it out by stating something to the effect:  “…buyer is not asking the seller to pay for or to make any repairs but buyer conditions the sale on the warranties of sections…”

Most sellers think that “as is” means they don’t have to pay for repairs.  The same holds for some buyers and their agents.  It’s a lot more than about repairs…

It’s about property disclosure
