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.

See Gatlinburg: Free River Shots


Since we travel a lot, we know we have to save every little penny somewhere in order to see and do everything we want to when out and about. This spot is a favorite of mine right past the bypass sign after going through the city of Gatlinburg. It's a small pull off that you will pass quickly if you are not looking for it. Don't worry if you pass it, just turn around. 

You walk a couple of steps past your car down a small hill and you are brought to a beautiful creek with a bridge that crosses to the other side. Be careful the rocks are slippery. Best part: It is free and you get really nice shots to share with your friends and family on your blog, twitter, facebook and instagram





I am working on getting more of the photos from our latest trip together. Douglas is at a yearbook camp on the University of Richmond's campus until Thursday and she has the waterproof camera with the fun water shots on it.
