Every now and then when you are searching for a home, you will see the term "contingent," which can be confusing for anyone new in the real estate industry. A contingency simply means that a certain condition needs to be met before a buyer can finalize the purchase of a home. If the contingency isn't met, the house will still be available for sale on the open market. Here are just a few of the most common contingencies and how our REALTORS® can help guide you throughout the entire home buying process.
