The South Carolina residential purchase and sale agreement is a contract that lays out the terms of an agreement between a seller and an interested buyer for the purchase of a piece of real estate. In addition to the purchase price, property description, and closing date, the document will also include any conditions that the buyer will need to fulfill prior to purchase, such as an earnest money payment and down payment, and acquiring financing and insurance. Once an initial agreement has been drafted, its terms can be updated by both parties until a final version is agreed upon and signed, at which point the contract will become legally binding.
