Hey, Tarrence! I assume you are talking about overage agreements. With an overage agreement the buyer is agreeing to pay extra on top of the original price if the value of the property increases over time. For example, if a seller manages to sell a field and after a while, the buyer receives permission to build houses on the field, the value of the land increases. As a result of closing on an overage agreement the seller benefits from the value increase of the land even though he is no longer an owner. There are different types of agreements and you can find out more about them from our article listings 101. Also, if you need to find more about overage agreements in your area, you can contact us or find a real estate agent near you that can help you with the necessary information.
