The California Residential Purchase Agreement and Joint Escrow Instructions

If you are planning to buy a home or condo in San Diego County, I encourage you to become familiar with all the documents you will most likely see throughout your purchase process. The "California Residential Purchase Agreement and Joint Escrow Instructions" (RPA-CA) is one of the most important documents you should become familiar with.

You and your exclusive buyer agent will use this document when you are ready to write an offer to purchase a property that you want to buy. This document covers many areas of negotiation between you and the seller and explains in detail how your transaction will transpire, should you and the seller come to an agreement on price and terms.

Exclusive Buyer Agents do not list homes for sale and never represent sellers. They have no "inventory" to try to sell you. They can represent you in purchasing any home. They are specialists at representing buyers only on the buyers' side of the transaction. Exclusive Buyer Agents work to get buyers the best price and terms when they buy a home.

If you have excellent credit and plan to buy a home or condo in San Diego County within 90 days, contact Justin Gramm to hire an agent on your side of the transaction. Call Justin at (858) 437-2662 or  E-mail.
