The Alaska residential purchase and sale agreement is a contract used in the home-buying process to make a formal purchase offer on a single-family home, condo, multi-unit property, manufactured home, or other type of residential real estate. In addition to being used for making an offer, the contract establishes the fees the buyer is willing to cover, the closing costs, any contingencies, how the property will be financed, and other key terms and conditions.

The buyer typically completes the form with the assistance of a real estate broker, who will go through each section of the form with the buyer. Once completed, the form will be sent to the seller (and their agent), who will decide if they want to deny, accept, or re-negotiate the offer.
