The Nebraska purchase agreement is an integral component of a real estate transaction. It is what legally binds the seller and purchaser to carry out the terms of a sale. The buyer will typically make the first move by putting an offer on the property. The terms of the offer are recorded to this form and presented to the seller in hopes of being accepted. The owner can then contemplate as to whether they consent to the terms provided or instead, wish to counter the proposition with alternate conditions. Some of the areas that should be covered within the document include the earnest money deposit, final selling price, and prospective date of closing. Once these matters have been settled and both parties are content with the written conditions, they may finalize the sale by executing the signature portion of the contract.
