Instructions for Writing a Contract on a 4 Brothers Buy Houses Property

*Note: My contract varies slightly from state to state because I hold title under different names in different states to keep taxes easy. Please use the following contract based on which state the home is located:

ALL buyers must download and read the following: A few important points to mention:
  • Make sure you fill out the contract in its entirety, including the lead based paint (even if the home was built after 1978)
  • Unless otherwise noted, no contingencies (i.e. home inspection contingency)
  • Earnest Money Deposit (EMD) must be held with the Seller’s title Company, and must be in the amount of $10,000
  • Earnest Money Deposit (EMD) must be wired or dropped off in certified funds within 1 business day of ratification of offer
  • Prefer closing company listed in the contract. This will be an important factor in considering your offer
  • Properties are sold totally in As Is condition. Any seller trash, furniture, etc can be left by seller at closing and will become responsibility of buyer after settlement
  • Seller name is Asymptote LLC for MD, VA and DC properties. Seller address is 2200 Wilson Blvd Ste 102-140, Arlington VA 22201
  • Refer back to property advertisement online or via email for Property Closing Date. However, please keep in mind this date is approximate and can change somewhat as we get closer to closing, but you will have ample notice of any changes
  • If you are an agent with a client that wants to make an offer, you’ll want to add following to the bottom of the contract: “Seller agrees to pay xxx commission to xxx brokerage when buyer and seller go to settlement on property.” But please keep in mind my decision is based on the “net offer” I receive… and I have a lot of investors on my list that do not use an agent
  • If you have not purchased a home from me before, please send “Proof of Funds” with your offer
  • You can scan/email the offer back to jonc@4brothersbuyhouses.com or fax it to (202) 888-7278
  • Contracts are typically reviewed within 2-3 days of the showing time. If there are multiple offers, I will ask for “best and final” ONCE. No bidding wars
Email me with any questions. I look forward to working with you!
