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

Leeve's First Day at the River












I've been a funk lately. You ever get where you feel like you put one foot forward and then have to take twenty back? 

Well, that has been me
and what seems to be my direction over the last couple of weeks --- could be Taurus season. Being a libra- I have lofty airy goals and when a earth season comes in--- I get grounded really quick. :( 

Well, my oldest and I went to the James River this afternoon because I just needed to get away. Blew off work for a couple of hours and wanted to soak in the rays. 

Douglas now has a puppy. She wanted one forever and even though I was like, "The last thing you need is a puppy," she wanted one. She doesn't live at home anymore and now can do whatever she wants. 

You know how it was to be 18. 

No one knows anything except me and I am the ruler of my domain! 

It is quite funny to watch your child as the mother of another being--- a puppy is vibrant and rowdy. A nice day at the beach to relax and enjoy the afternoon? Well, that'll happen another day. 

Levee (pronounced Leh-vee) had a ball. 

She loves the water, 
and the sand, 
and digging under the chairs, 
and chewing water bottles, 
and stepping in her water bowl, 
and giving grandma sandy hugs and shakes... :) 

You know the drill. 

Isn't my GrandPup the cutest?
