Do real estate contracts have to be in writing, in Texas?
Do real estate contracts have to be in writing, in Texas? Yes. In Texas, and most other states, a contract for the sale of real estate MUST be in writing [aka not a verbal agreement] to be valid. So until it’s in writing…with a real life or electronic signature done by both parties…it is just an offer.
See the Texas Business & Commerce Code, Sec. 26.01 for more details. It’s also necessary for “a lease of real estate for a term longer than one year” and a few other things. That’s kind of a boring, but interesting fact, right? Haha!
Anyway -> If you want an offer on your house, OR if you’re ready to sign a written agreement to sell your house -> call us today at 972-514-7355!!! Thank you!!
