Florida Real Estate Sales Contracts
Before signing a contract for a major real estate purchase , you should think about it for at least 24 hours – while you still have all your options. The best way to prepare for your options is to review the real estate contracts with your Realtor a head of time of making an offer.
Carefully check all the terms of your real estate contract to make sure everything agreed upon between the parties is written into the contract. Don’t accept spoken promises; get everything in writing. Once you have a signed contract, get a copy and keep it in case any questions arise later about the terms.
