A purchase agreement, also known as a purchase contract, is a signed agreement between the buyer and seller describing all the terms of a transaction. The fully executed purchase agreement, including all addenda and counteroffers, typically is requested as part of the mortgage loan preapproval process, which can typically result in a written loan decision.
A purchase agreement may also be requested for construction financing in order to document acquisition costs. It may also be needed if the building lot was acquired in a separate transaction.
