Year Built

What should a listing agent put for the Year Built on a new structure built on an existing foundation or a home been rebuilt by more than 50%? There is not one clear cut answer. The Rules and Regulations Committee directed that the listing agent could either put the original year built OR the new year built as long as they disclose in the remarks the original year built. The original year built must be disclosed no matter when the structure was rebuilt or moved. This disclosure can be in the Public Remarks or Agent Remarks. This applies only to MAJOR rebuilds or moving the home to a new foundation.

If the year built is unknown, check the county tax record. If not reported in the tax record, enter the first year in which the county has a record of taxes being paid on the county. Disclose in remarks that the year built is unknown (public or agent remarks).
