What documents are required when signing a real estate purchase?
What documents are required when signing a real estate purchase agreement? A real estate purchase agreement is just an offer to purchase. All thats needed is your signature on the offer (with initials on every page and in a few spots in the middle of pages) and a COPY of an earnest money deposit check. Its often helpful to include a copy of your pre-approval from a lender, showing that someone is willing to loan you enough money to buy the property. Once the offer is accepted (with any necessary amendments and counter offers), then theres a ton of documents needed.
