John,

You must have been talking to some serious DORK at the publishing company! What you are looking for is a “Purchase and Sale Agreement” for buyers and sellers to buy and sell real property.

This is the most standard form there is out there, if they dont have it go to a legal publications store or your local real estate office to pick one up.

This is part of the price we pay for a very low unemployment rate, burger flippers acting as legal consultants, where does it end???

Correct Real Estate Form - Anyone Help - Posted by John Estell(Denver)

I just went to a Publishing Company here in Denver and asked for a Purchase Agreement form. They didn’t know what I was talking about. They have every real estate form imaginable but this was new. They tried giving me a Lease/Option form and I told them this wasn’t it. Now I got a ‘Contract to Buy and Sell Real Estate’ form because I was told by them this is what I needed. I keep hearing out here about a Purchase Agreement. I even asked for a Lease/Purchase Agreement form with no success. So my question is: What is the exact name of the form investors use to tie up a property to find a buyer. Thanks.

The local purchase agreement is published by Bradford Publishing in Denver. If you join our local real estate investment association (Call 303-448-4901), you get it for free on disk in Word format.

Varies from state to state - Posted by John Behle

The name of the form that is standardly used varies from state to state. For example, in Utah the standard form is called the REPC which stands for Real Estate Purchase Contract. It used to be called an “Earnest Money Receipt and Offer to Purchase”.

I HIGHLY recommend checking out your state approved form before attempting to use another. You can get a copy of that through the board of realtors or most any agent. In most states, the agents are required to use the state approved form.

Well, a “purchace Agreement” basically is a contract to buy and sell real estate. The buyer is contracting to buy, and the seller is contracting to sell.
