Selling a home in Massachusetts is not the easiest thing to do. First you have to find an agent to work with and then you need to navigate the selling process. Unlike other states, selling a home in Massachusetts is a multi stage process. First, you list the property for sale, then work through the Offer to Purchase, the Home Inspection, the Purchase and Sale Agreement , Mortgage and Closing.
Along the way you will be asked to sign many forms and contracts. Some of these are issued by the State of Massachusetts, like the Mandatory Licensee Consumer Relationship Disclosure, and the Property Transfer Lead Paint Notification. Others are issued by the Greater Boston Real Estate Board or the real estate company with which you are working. These may include Exclusive Listing Agreements or the Offer to Purchase itself.
