Accepting an offer on your property
Offer to Purchase
A formal contract between a buyer and seller to purchase or sell a property at an agreed upon price, along with any stipulations.
If a seller does not accept an offer to purchase, the seller may present a counter offer to the buyer. The buyer then has the option to accept, reject or counter the counter offer.
If after an Offer to Purchase is signed and the conditions change but agreeable to both parties an amendment can be made modifying the terms of the agreement.
Owners Policy of Title Insurance
A title declares ownership rights to a property. Title insurance is a product that protects a buyer against any defects, liens, or encumbrances on the title of the property.
There are two different types of Title Insurance: 1) Owner’s Policy and, 2) Lender’s Policy. Owner’s policy protects the owner of the property. Lender’s policy protects the lender and their financial interests.
In Wisconsin, typically the seller of a property pays for title insurance protecting the buyer. It is the seller’s responsibility to provide the new owner with clear title to the property.
In Minnesota, the buyer typically pays the Owners and Loan Policy of the title insurance.
