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

Underwater Camera Fun














A couple of months ago, I bought Joe a Panasonic Lumix DMC TS20 camera for his birthday. He didn't really have his own camera so I thought, hey why not? He might used it or he might not, but at least he has his own now. It being January when Joe celebrates his birthday, one of the coolest things about the camera couldn't be tested.

This camera is waterproof! It takes photos in up to 16 feet in water when you follow the locking rules correctly. This was the first weekend we have been able to use it in the water and I'm pretty impressed about the quality of the photos and how well it works. The girls had a blast and it was a hit at the pool.
