Contract For Sale

Up for auction from "Got To have It" auctions is the contract used in the purchase of the Graceland Mansion. 

From the site:
This original contract used in the purchase of Graceland, is signed by Elvis Presley's father Vernon Presley. The original contract was created to acknowlege the use of two brokers, each is named on the contract. Each page measures 8 X 14. 

The agreement shows that Elvis (Vernon) put down a $1000.00 deposit on the purchase of Graceland, and that the purchase price was a total of $102,500.00. This was ultimately made up of a $10,000.00 cash payment, the trade of the Presley’s Audubon Drive home for $55,000.00, and a mortgage over Graceland. 

On Saturday, March 17, 1957, Vernon Presley called local Memphis real estate agent, Virginia Grant, and asked her what properties she had that they could look at to purchase on behalf of their son, Elvis Presley. Grant wasted no time, and showed them two properties that day, leaving Graceland to last. By 6pm, she had drawn up a provisional sales agreement for Vernon to sign and the deal was put in place for what has become as much a part of Elvis as anything else you will see.
