North Carolina Real Estate Information

Real Estate Documents For Buying and Selling NC Homes*


View and Approve Addendum:  

This document allows you to immediately write a contract on a North Carolina home.  You then have 14 days (or an agreed upon time between you and the seller) to come to the mountain and check it out.  If you like the home, the contract becomes effective and you follow through with the purchase.  If the home does not meet your approval, any earnest money is refunded and the contract is no longer valid.  It is that simple.  This is a great addendum which allows you time to get travel plans in order but yet lets you have a contract in place so that no one else can buy the home until you have checked it out!

Working with Real Estate Agents:  

Not a contract but an information paper that describes the relationship of a Buyer’s, Seller’s or Dual Agent to you the Buyer or Seller.  Every state is a bit different so it is nice to know how it works in NC.

Dual Agency Addendum: 

This authorizes your agent to act as both a Buyer’s and Seller’s Agent with you at the same time.  If a home is listed by the agent that is helping your buy a particular piece of property, this person would be a dual agent representing both you. the Buyer as well as the Seller.
