What is a Contingency?

  In my last blog I discussed what Pending means in Real Estate and I stated:   Anytime I say Pending, it means the house is under contract. Either with a contingency or not, the house is more than likely going to another buyer. It's just a matter of time until it closes and the new homeowner will be moving in. So what is a contingency?  Well a contingency in a contract is anything that must be first met to allow the sale to continue in the manner in which the contract was written. Most contracts have standard contingencies to include a home inspection, a financial contingency and an appraisal contingency. Other contingencies could include a home sale.  Home Inspection Contingency: This contingency allows the buyer to preform a home inspection (all home inspectors in the state of Virginia must have a license) and the buyer has the opportunity to ask for repairs in order for the contract to move forward. Sellers at this time can a couple of things. Repair all items Repair some it

Don't Throw the Heel: Make Croutons

I used to be the worst at throwing away the heels of bread because no one was going to eat them in this family. Then one day I thought to myself, why not chop them up, toss with some olive oil and bake them? I tell you that was a great day in my life. Fresh croutons are the best for your salads and instead of buying a box of them with all of that extra packaging you have it already in your home!



What You Need:

Heels from Loaves of Bread (We are obsessed with our Pepperidge Farm Outlet up the road!)
Cavender's Greek Seasoning 
Olive Oil to Coat
Container to coat your bread pieces in with a top or a zipper
Sheet Pan

What to Do:

1. Preheat Oven to 350.

2. Chop your loaves of bread into bit sized pieces. Place in your container your bread pieces, olive oil and Cavender's. Shake until all pieces have a nice coating of seasoning and olive oil.

3. Place on a sheet pan and place in oven for abour 16-20 minutes. You want them done but not burned. 

4. Remove from oven and let sit until cool. Place in a container for storage.
