When you are considering using a contract like this, it is important that you know all of the positive and negative aspects. You can learn about them below.

For some people who are in the market to buy a home or property, a real estate contract may be the only real way they can do so. This is often due to the flexibility that is created with a contract like this in regards to payment. These contracts tend to be more forgiving than traditional lenders.The seller also can benefit from a real estate contract because they will likely be able to get rid of the property faster.

Cons

On the other hand, there is a lot that goes into making a real estate contract sound. Many negotiations occur before anyone ever signs the contract, whether they  regarding improvements that need to be made, zoning issues, property destruction and more.
