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

Best Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg

As a Williamsburg local, I have heads up on the best tavern you can enjoy while visiting our Historic Triangle. Kings Arm is tasty, historic and usually very warm in the winter.

Jane Vobe opened the Kings Arm in 1772. It became the town's most respectable establishment and she was said to have described it as " where the best people gathered." You will understand why this was as soon as you step foot into the rooms of the Tavern. With the finest furnishings, perfect hosts and service and musical entertainment that brings you back to the magical times of Colonial Williamsburg.




Start:

Either the Champagne Cocktail with sugar cubes and bitters or if you are more of a beer drinker try Mr. Purdie's Home Brew.

Begin Your Meal:

Peanut Soupe: A specialty garnished with peanuts and snippets. You will be satisfied!

Eat:

Either the Norfolk Pottage Pye with tender chicken in a creamy soup with carrots and peas with a flaky crust that melts in your mouth or Mrs. Vobe's Southern Fried Chicken. Suburb fried and served alongside salty ham, boiled tomatoes and skillet fries. 

End: 

With Thomas Jefferson's Brandy Spiked Bread Pudding served with warm Vanilla Bean sauce.
