For Sale by Owner Guide
Guide for SellersSee all Seller Guide topics
Generally, the buyer initiates the purchase agreement, often called the "sales agreement" or "offer to purchase". In some cases, however, the buyer will not know where to obtain contract forms or how to start the process. As a FSBO seller, you need to be prepared with contract forms for a prospective buyer. Contacting a real estate attorney to draw up a contract is the easiest way to make sure everyone is protected. If you and the buyer decide to progress without an attorney, you can purchase contract software packages on Owners.com or purchase forms at a local office supply store. And of course, if the buyer is working with a real estate agent whom you have agreed to pay, the agent will provide the appropriate forms.
