10.2
Agreement Wilbert Heikkila listed eight
parcels of real property for sale. David McLaughlin submitted written offers to
purchase three of the parcels. Three printed purchase agreements were prepared
and submitted to Heikkila, with three earnest-money checks from McLaughlin.
Writing on the purchase agreements, Heikkila changed the price of one parcel
from $145,000 to $150,000, the price of another parcel from $32,000 to $45,000,
and the price of the third parcel from $175,000 to $179,000. Heikkila also
changed the closing dates on all three of the properties, added a reservation of
mineral rights to all three, and signed the purchase agreements.
McLaughlin
did not sign the purchase agreements to accept the changes before Heikkila
withdrew his offer to sell. McLaughlin sued to compel specific performance of
the purchase agreements under the terms of the agreements before Heikkila
withdrew his offer. The court granted Heikkila’s motion to dismiss McLaughlin’s
claim. McLaughlin appealed. Does a contract to convey real property exist
between Heikkila and McLaughlin? McLaughlin v. Heikkila, 697 N.W.2d 231,
