Wisconsin Residential Purchase and Sale Agreement

Updated February 17, 2022

A Wisconsin residential purchase and sale agreement sets the conditions of the sale and purchase of real estate. Mentioned in the contract will be a description of the residence, the personal items to be included in the sale (e.g., appliances, furniture, curtains), and financial terms such as the purchase price and method of payment. Unless the seller’s title is listed in § 709.01(2), they will need to provide the buyer with a condition report of the property. The report must be given within ten (10) days after an offer has been accepted. If the property is a condominium (and a condition report is required), the seller must also include an addendum to describe the property in greater detail. Both condition reports are accessible below under “Related Disclosures.”
