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

Ski: The Homestead
















I was not raised on a ski slope. My hubby more so than I. Never getting to experience the sport as a child, I knew when we moved to Virginia the opportunity would show. We've hit the slopes a couple of times mostly at Wintergreen and Gatlinburg but couple of weeks ago, Joe's buddy invited us up to take a trial run before our ski trip to Wintergreen in two weeks. 

We stayed at his family's vacation home which was beyond beautiful. The front yard has remains of an old hunting cabin. We ate dinner at Cucci's one night and I cooked the other. We hit the slopes at the Omni Homestead Saturday and I still stop by hitting the ground or skiing right onto the lift. Here's to helmet wearing up in West Virginia and taking another class.
