Buying a home in MA is not the easiest thing to do. First you have to find a home to suit your needs and then you need to navigate the buying process. Unlike other states, buying a home in Massachusetts is a multi stage process. First, you put forth your Offer to Purchase, then comes the Home Inspection, then, 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, the Property Transfer Lead Paint Notification and the Home Inspector Facts for Consumers. Others are issued by the Greater Boston Real Estate Board or the real estate company with which you are working. These may include Buyer Representation Agreements and the Offer to Purchase itself.
