Buying and Selling a home, and Children

I love kids.  I have 2 of my own.  I love the way they smile, I love their innocence, their energy, and their all of their hugs and kisses.  However, when the time comes for you to list your home or to buy a home, especially when you are going over the legal contracts, it is important that your attention is focused on the complexities and details of the agreements you are signing.  Young children want and often need your undivided attention.  There are two  issues here.  The safety of the children and a clear understanding of the documents you are signing.  Children can get into dangerous situations in the blink of an eye so obviously it is imperative that they are being watched.  Your home is the biggest investment you will likely make in your lifetime, and usually your biggest asset. Even something that seems insignificant, such as a misunderstood term, or perhaps not hearing a piece of information your Realtor provides for you, could affect your decision and change the outcome of the entire sale. If you are signing documents at your home, ask a friend or family member to watch your children in another room while your Real estate sales representative explains your options and while you are making your decisions.  If you are signing documents at the office, ask someone to babysit.  Being fully focused, for the short time it takes to complete the paperwork, will help to ensure a worry free purchase or sale of your home.
