Nevada Real Estate Purchase Agreement Template

Downloads: 564

The Nevada purchase agreement is a tool used to record the terms of an arrangement regarding the exchange of real property. Customarily, a person interested in selling their home will hire a real estate agent to represent them and publicize their property for sale. If the asking price is reasonable, it should only be a matter of time before potential buyers come to view the property and later submit offers to acquire the dwelling. These offers are introduced using the purchase agreement which contains the terms & conditions they would like to inject into the transaction. The seller may approve or counter offer using the same form but adding their own stipulations. This can go back and forth until both parties come to a compromise on the contractual undertakings. Once an offer has been signed by the individual who received the proposal, it becomes a legally binding purchase agreement.
