Wisconsin Residential Purchase and Sale Agreement

The Wisconsin residential purchase and sale agreement is a contract that is used for residential real estate transactions between a buyer and a seller. Both parties may propose and negotiate terms and conditions until they have reached an agreement. The terms of the agreement will include the purchase price, closing cost, and closing date. Conditions for the transactions can be made for both parties; for example, the buyer may be required to obtain insurance and financing, and the seller may be required to allow a professional inspection of the property before the transaction can be completed. The document will also need to include basic information such as the names and addresses of the buyer and seller and a description of the property. Once both parties have executed the contract, its terms will become legally binding.
