Real Estate Sales Contract

Unlike most other properties, the purchase of real estate will require a sales or purchase contract. A written contract is required because of the importance of real estate and the many details involved in the sale of real estate.

The conveyance of property not only involves the basic physical aspects of the real estate, such as the land itself and the buildings on it. Real estate transactions will also involve the degrees of ownership being conveyed, the warranties and covenants being offered by the seller, the condition of the title being received by the buyer and the other fixtures involved with the property.

Many elements, issues and considerations go into a contract. This article and its segments will try to provide a complete review of real estate contracts in a brief, concise discussion. It will cover the following basic areas that buyers and sellers should understand:
