Delaware Real Estate Purchase Agreement Template


The Delaware purchase agreement is a contract that is employed when an individual would like to sell their home to another party. It can be provided by either the seller or buyer depending on who’s proposing the offer. Typically, the buyer will put in an offer using the agreement and it is up to the seller to whether or not they accept. If accepted, the seller agrees to the price and contingencies set forth within the agreement. They may also counteroffer to request more money or to include an additional contingency.
