Dear Friend, It is not a hard rule that needs explanation." Agreement to Sell" meaning Selling Agreement,where there is no sale complete, or the sale is not yet complete. An Agreement is made to sell the property. It is a Pre-Sale Agreement. Whereas the Sale Agreement means agreement which shows sale as being completed,ready to be registered. The English words "to sell" shows incomplete sale, and Sale and Agreement are two nouns,each is complete in itself.
