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

Christmas Cookie Night










My friends and I, along with my mom, have a cookie night every year around Christmas. I'm sure many of you reading do the same thing. It's fun isn't it? Mom made chili and our friend Ron brought some pizza. The parents were in charge of bringing cookies instead of making them from scratch as we have done in the past and I brought these.  Although we had around one hundred cookies, the kids decorated about five and decided it was time for Ghost's in the Graveyard. We decided to cut down on the numbers next year. 

It's sad in a way when the kids begin to age. The magic of Christmas is not there anymore and I feel as if the childhood moments of my children are fading. We are entering a new phase of celebrating Christmas and I'm looking at booking a cruise next year. I guess there is really a time in place for everything but looking back as I do with Little Bits of the Past, the sweet, smiling faces of toddlers from the Fisher household are no longer. Now I have sweet, smiling pre-teens and teens.

Hope everyone has a Happy Holiday!
