Give your clients the essential information they need to better understand the RPA, and along with it the process of buying and selling a home.
Buying or selling a home is a big event that triggers a lot of emotions and questions. That is just as true whether it is your first time or if you have done it before. Some people feel scared, others are happy, and some feel both at different times in the transaction. Almost all are anxious and, at times, confused. One reason for the feelings of uneasiness is that there are a lot of documents to read and sign. And one of the most important of these documents is the C.A.R. California Residential Purchase Agreement (RPA), which is the primary contract document between a buyer and a seller.
This step-by-step guide is written for home buyers and sellers and explains the RPA in an easy-to-follow, color-coded format. Give this guide to your clients so they can prepare for a safe and smooth transaction.
