A Missouri residential real estate purchase and sale agreement is a contract between a buyer that offers to buy real estate from a seller for a negotiated price. The agreement acts as a binding offer until accepted by the seller. At the time of acceptance, the earnest money deposit must be paid by the buyer with any due diligence or contingencies to be fulfilled until the closing date.

Missouri does not require the seller to complete a Property Disclosure Statement but may be requested by the buyer.

Buyer Beware

As a “caveat emptor” state, real estate buyers in Missouri should be aware that sellers are not required by law to disclose any property defects, damages, or other deterrents that may affect the buyer’s decision to purchase the residence. However, the law does mandate that sellers inform buyers if the property was previously used for methamphetamine production. (§ 442.606)
