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

Newport Beach and Hermosa

My favorite picture of the entire trip. 

The clouds are stuck. 

We are BACK!


So wish we could come more often. 


The deck I couldn't sit on for days because it was so cold!
Eerie. 

Joe and I flew into John Wayne a couple of weeks ago and since I got back I feel as if I have been playing catch up. Sage is graduating from middle school in a couple of days and Ava from elementary school too. It's been one practice, concert and work related event after another. You know how live is: nothing and then everything.


I wanted to share some of the photos from our trip. We had a blast even though it was rainy and cold most of the time. The sun and warmth came out for our friends wedding and the last day I was able to sit on the deck and catch some rays. Happy we missed the oil spill in Santa Barbara that has led down to Manhattan Beach. I would suggest anyone who hasn't been out to So-Cal to go. It's a beautiful place filled with succulents, roses, and pretty awesome folks.

This is what Sage wants to see for her 16th birthday. 


Outside our house.

It was nice enough to wear my bathing suit and I did: Everywhere. Sorry.

Hermosa Beach from the Pier. 

Hope you have a great weekend. Heading to the lake for the first time. Getting ready to take my PSI for the real estate exam on Tuesday. Scared.
