The written agreement must include a description of the finances with which the buyer will be capable of fulfilling their payment, as well as a date by which the offer will expire if it is not accepted. During this period, the seller may present a counteroffer and the purchaser may have the property professionally inspected. Once the agreement has been signed by both parties, it becomes legally binding.
