Hi Marc,

Its only as good as the paper it is written on and without a signature, its not valid. If you are representing a seller making an offer to a buyer and expect both parties to sign, which is doing it a bit backwards, fine. I can't think of why you would present an offer from a buyer to a sller NOT signed. I would not expect the seller to find it too motivating.

Sure. I'm not a lawyer, but....

It'd be a non-binding and non-enforceable offer.

You can. Legally it is not a contract until all parties sign. All binding agreements need to be in writing and signed by all parties to be enforceable.

Deals are sometimes made made verbally with no papers being prepared or signed until closing. While this is not standard practice, nor its it recommended, it is certainly legal.
