Selling home: are online contracts OK to use?
We are currently selling our home in PA, while we live about 90 miles away in NJ. We have a buyer for our house who has been pre-approved for the selling price of the house. Now we need to obtain a contract. My husband has been searching online for contracts to print & use--is this a safe way to go? Has anyone else done this? I know we could call a lawyer, but we're really trying to save money right now. We're selling the house "as is" which is about $20k under market value just to get rid of it & help pay for repairs to our current home as well as pay for kid's college bills. Because of the distance, most of our transactions will be through the mail, fax or email.
Thanks for any help or advice!
