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

Visit: Family Greenhouse














Every visit to Rogersville wouldn't be complete without a trip to our family's greenhouse. Martins Greenhouse is run by my uncle and aunt along with other aunts and a slew of cousins. They are always super sweet when we get to see them although, I always wish more of the cousins were there when we came. I guess around the holidays many of them are off! ;) Good for them.

What is so awesome about Martins? If you have ever visited Dollywood in Gatlinburg, Tennessee and seen the beautiful plants, well here is who grows them from seedlings. 

When we stopped by, we were told we just missed the huge poinsettia collection but we were excited to see all of the succulents they were growing. A trend, is what they called them at Martin's. It seems that succulents are the "it" thing right now for the younger generation in weddings. I think I have seen quite a few blogs with these beauties gracing their webpages. We were told to take what we wanted. Each of the girls, Joe and I each chose a plant. They are sitting in our sunroom now, freezing. Poor things.
