If the Arizona REALTORS real estate purchase contract forms were used in the transaction, parties may utilize the Buyer-Seller Dispute program to resolve disputes between buyer and sellers. Disputes may concern earnest money, property condition and others. In the unlikely event of a dispute between buyers and sellers to the transaction, mediation would provide for an objective third-party (legally qualified mediator) to meet with all parties to help them reach a solution. There are some exceptions to buyer-seller mediation listed in the contract, but most disputes can be mediated successfully, which can save legal expense and aggravation.

*Note: The Arizona REALTORS does not assist with contacting any party to the dispute.

“Mediation is almost always in the client’s best interests. I have represented 100+ clients in mediation – over 99% of those cases were resolved favorably at mediation. Mediation saves the parties money, stress and time. AAR is wise to include section 7c in the purchase contract, which requires parties to mediate any dispute before going to court.”
