Filling out Forms

1. When you click on a form, it will download to your computer. (The exact process will vary depending on the browser you are using. Just make sure you know where your computer downloads the form to so you can get to it later.)
2. Find the downloaded form (on your Desktop, or whichever file it was downloaded to) and open it on your computer. Make sure to fill out the form on your computer and NOT in the browser window.
3. You can save a partially completed form by clicking the “Finish Later” button on the bottom of the form.

If anything doesn’t work as expected or according to instructions, please call us so we can help you.

3. If it’s your first time, select the bottom option, “A new digital ID I want to create now” (Older versions of Acrobat will give the option: “Create a self-signed digital ID for use with Acrobat”)

Listing Information (Required) This is the form that supplies us with all the information that we need about your property to enter it into MLS. The forms all vary because every MLS has a different format.

Information About Brokerage Services (Required)

Seller’s Disclosure Notice  (Required For Sale – Not Required For Lease)  All sellers in Texas are required to furnish a Seller’s Disclosure Notice to buyers. (Certain sellers are exempt, such as banks selling foreclosures. If you are reading this, chances are you are not exempt.) When you enter a contract, be sure to have the buyers sign and return a copy to you as proof that you gave it to them. This can protect you from future lawsuits.

Addendum for Sale of Other Property by Buyer  Form used when writing a contingency contract. A contingency contract is when a buyer agrees to buy your house, but only if the buyer’s house sells. For more about contingency contracts see FAQ.

Addendum for “Back-Up” Contract  Use this form if you have an existing contract to sell your property, and another buyer wants to make a “Back-Up” offer. A second contract is executed which references this addendum, along with this addendum. The Back-Up contract becomes effective if the first contract falls through.

Contract Amendment  For making changes to the original contract without rewriting the whole contract.

Addendum for Property Subject to Mandatory Membership in an Owner’s Association  It’s wise to have this completed in advance, and give it to the buyer at the time you are signing the contract. If you give this addendum to the buyer any time after the signing of the contract, the buyer has 7 days to get out of the contract for any reason from the date of receiving the addendum.
