Always make sure you have a tennessee Property Disclosure available to prospective buyers as well as a Lead Base Paint if built before 1978-these two documents MUST be used even with For Sale By Owners and will pretect you in the future.

An office suppy store may have the form.  You could also have your attorney draw up the contract.

You also want to be assured  that your buyer is qualified to purchase the house.  The  buyer needs a mortgage preapproval to verify he/she can close on the deal.

Rene,
You've already found a buyer?  That's great!

You have a few options for "the paperwork".

- Office supply store.  They usually have a generic form.
- Legalzoom or other such website, careful though..make sure you really know what you're typing in there...

YOUR BEST TWO OPTIONS:
-A local Real Estate Broker may do it for a small "Transaction Fee" since it really is just paperwork.  I have done a few of these, so Brokers will do them, you just may have to call around....
-A local Real Estate Attorney.  Attorney's don't all cost tens of thousands of dollars for you to wait in the lobby...(just kidding my attorney friends).  Many are very accomodating in this situation, and they can usually conduct the entire transaction for you.

GOOD LUCK!

An office supply store might have some "generic" forms you can use. But rockin is correct in suggesting you contact a title company or a real estate attorney so you have all the legal documents required by your state. You want to make sure that all of the documents are properly filed with the city-county-state after the closing and that the property taxes are properly prorated amoung other things.
