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

Halloween was COLD!

My guy was in California this weekend for the Breeder's Cup with work buddies and I was home with the girls. We had a nice Halloween although when the kids start getting older, they start to disperse and leave you as the parent, lonely. :(
  I was left home alone to hand out candy. That didn't last long though. I'm not a fan of being alone on a Friday night. So I grab my Leinenkugel's Orange Shandy, put the candy on the doorstep and took off on the golf cart to see what the neighborhood was up to. 

I stopped by mom's and hung out for a bit. Then moved along to my neighbor's where we turned on Christmas music and really scared some people. After rounding up the troops after eight, they counted their candy and I went off to a neighborhood party. Douglas went to the football game and came home around eleven. She looked very pretty dressed as a flapper. 


 All had a nice, nice night but it was CHILLY!!
