We were honest with our disclosure FWIW, we had nothing to hide.
See that's what I was wondering.....

I'm sure you are going to have a home inspection, right? You can mention it to make sure he checks it out even though I'm sure he will.

That said, I do find the change odd and might question it. On the other hand, I sometimes mark the wrong box on forms I fill out for the dr. (or whatever) simply because I'm going too quickly. It could have been a simple error, but I might ask my Realtor to find out for me.

(We have sold 2, bought 4 and are closing on our 5th on Friday.)
I probably wouldn't have even thought of it if they hadn't crossed out their answer on the they had a question or concern and changed their mind...and yes, we are hving the inspections. Around here foundation problems are EVERYWHERE....our realtor said he would be surprised to see a house without a problem.

I need to make sure but one of us will be there...if not both.
