The process of buying real estate is different in the rest of Massachusetts and New York. In many states, title insurance agencies, notaries, and escrow companies conduct real estate settlements or closings. Here, real estate closings must be conducted by an attorney. And, while the role of a real estate agent is important, they cannot provide advice about legal matters. Be informed. Read about the process of buying and selling a home in the Berkshires.

The custom of writing an offer for the purchase or sale of a home in the Berkshires is somewhat different than in other areas in Massachusetts and other states. Elsewhere, a prospective buyer signs a non-binding Offer to Purchase. Here, most residential sales start with a “Standard Berkshire County Multiple Listing Service Purchase and Sale Agreement,” which can be binding if accepted. It can be binding even with an “attorney review clause.” Know before you sign. Read about the process of buying and selling a home in the Berkshires.
