Updated February 16, 2022

A Minnesota residential real estate purchase and sale agreement is a document used to formalize an offer to purchase real estate. The written agreement must include the amount that the buyer is offering, how they will be able to finance the purchase, and for how long their offer will be open. State law demands that the purchaser is provided with a disclosure of any defects or deterrents that the residence has. This written statement must be given to potential buyers before any written agreement is made. If the buyer and seller both agree to the terms, they must both sign the contract to make the sale official.
