The real estate market in New Jersey always seems to be going through some kind of phase – buyer’s market, seller’s market, rising or lowering interest rates – there’s always a variety of factors for buyers and sellers alike to consider. But, when it comes to purchasing or selling real estate, either commercial or residential, the purchase agreement is a crucial document as part of the process.
There are usually many steps to take prior to drafting and executing a purchase agreement. The biggest example, of course, is the ability of the parties to agree on a purchase price – not always an easy step. There may be other details as well, such as which fixtures should remain with the property, any repairs that should be made prior to the title changing hands and even the possibility of easements on the property in question. These steps, among others, require careful attention as the parties work toward a purchase agreement.
The purchase agreement itself will be a document that both parties review and probably revise before they put pen to paper. If the purchase agreement in your real estate transaction isn’t drafted properly and carefully reviewed prior to signing, you may be in for potential problems in the future.
