Updated February 16, 2022

A North Carolina residential real estate purchase and sale agreement is used by real estate buyers to make an offer to purchase a residence. The form will contain information about the buyer’s offer, the property, and the seller. In addition to giving their offer, the buyer must explain how they will finance the purchase and when their offer expires. The individual selling the property has the option to accept, refuse, or negotiate the agreement until the expiration date. State law also requires that the buyer is given a property disclosure statement that relays information regarding the residence’s utilities and any property defects or hazards. If the seller accepts the agreement, both parties can sign the contract to make the sale official.
