Updated February 16, 2022

A New Mexico residential real estate purchase and sale agreement is a legal document binding the seller of a residence and the potential buyer of the property. On the form, the buyer’s monetary offer and terms will be written, as well as the date by which the offer will be closed. The seller can negotiate, accept, or refuse the offer up until the closing date. In some instances, items such as furniture, appliances, and utilities may be included in the sale, in which case these should also be included on the agreement form. At such a time that both parties have reached an agreement, they will both sign the purchase contract that specifies the agreed-upon terms of sale.
