The Delaware residential purchase and sale agreement is a form used by home buyers to make an official offer to purchase residential real estate from a seller. The agreement lays out the terms of the buyer’s offer, including the amount they’re willing to pay, the desired closing date, and the deadline by which the seller must either accept the proposal or respond with a counteroffer.
Should the seller reject the initial terms, they can modify the agreement where necessary and submit it to the buyer to advance the negotiation process. Only after the parties have initialed each page of the form and signed at the bottom will the agreement become final.
