Question: Contract of sale form
Does anyone have or know where I can get a California Residential Real Estate Sale Contract?
Thanks in advance.
Response: Mike, what is a California Residential Real Estate Sales Contract? I would think a contract of sales is dependent upon the person authoring the contract. In this case it would be you! A form contract picked up at Staples or Office Depot will not have the necessary clauses, nor will any other contract form.
Your contract of sale is personal and related directly to your needs. Write it to speak for you. It will remind the seller your conditions; it will speak to the title company and others reviewing your offer. So author it well.
If you mean a Board of Realtors contract, you can have an agent write an offer for you (usually for a fee). You could also go to a good title company to ask them to write a contract for you. They will often perform this service in return for the settlement at their office.
You can call a local lawyer to write and negotiate an offer for you. It could be well worth the fee you pay to have an expert mediator representing you.
I do not mind paying others to perform services that I elect not to do myself.
I would suspect you are an apprentice investor. If that is the case, the most important start up function would be to make smart offers, well written contracts with all necessary buyer clauses.
A well written contract offer could be considered a work of art.Charles Parrish
