An Arkansas residential purchase and sale agreement is a contract between two parties; an individual selling property (seller) and an individual buying said property (buyer). This agreement sets forth the terms and conditions by which both parties are bound until either the closing of the sale or the agreement is terminated for a reasonable cause. A purchase and sale agreement covers details such as price, earnest money, financing options, property condition, disclosures (none required by Arkansas law), and other relevant contingencies.
