The Purchase Agreement is a legal and binding contract between the Seller and the Buyer. Typically, the purchaser presents and Offer to Purchase to the seller. However the seller may need to provide the purchaser with this form. Every part of the agreement made between yourself and your buyer needs to be put into this contract. Be sure to fill in every blank, along with anything out of the ordinary in the additional conditions section. Primary Title will strictly adhere to the conditions in this purchase agreement when closing this transaction. Download HERE.
Earnest Money Deposit Escrow Agreement
An Earnest Money Deposit is not required; however, it is normal business practice in our area. An Earnest Money Deposit from the Buyer to the Seller shows the buyer’s seriousness about honoring the Purchase Agreement contract after it is signed. It also may make you more comfortable accepting the offer and taking your home off the market. In this area an Earnest Money Deposit of 3% to 6% of the purchase price is normal. Download HERE.
