A sales contract is a written contract between a buyer and a seller for the sale of real estate. Sales contracts are suitable for residential or commercial real estate. In general, in Minnesota, a contract to sell real estate must be entered into in writing to be enforceable.

Typically, a sales contract is a standard «fill out spaces» form. There are several standard forms that can be added to the sales contract to cover specific situations. It is preferable to use the standard sales form, as it is generally recognized by parties who trade with real estate, and it contains provisions that must legally be included in sales contracts. If a broker is not involved in the transaction, the sales form can be obtained from a lawyer. As a general rule, after the parties have signed a sales contract, the buyer`s mortgage company will process the mortgage application and the mortgage company will discontinue title insurance to verify the marketing of the security.

It is customary to assist a lawyer in the preparation of the sales contract, as it should contain all the conditions of the sale, and sometimes additional conditions must be included in a sales contract to protect the interests of the buyer or seller.
