All offers should be in writing. There is a common law statute of frauds that requires all real estate contracts to be in writing to be enforceable.

As far as getting forms, I use the local Realtors contracts and attach my own addendum. In Florida, that is the FAR/BAR or the FAR contract.

If you want some free forms look at:

Use Letter of Intent. - Posted by Jim H

Write a Letter of Intent to purchase. Offer a price with terms “to be agreed upon.” Although this is not a contract, it is a good starting point. If there is any interest on the sellers part a formal contract could then be written up.
