Contract now in the Pending State - okay to breathe! 

Previously, we talked about a Contingent Contract. A Contingent Contract is the initial phase of a Contract when it's first signed.  The Contingency is typically based upon the Due Diligence period.  You can find the blog here under Contingent Contract.

The Contingent Contract - what it all means. 

Today, I want to share with you the meaning of a Contingent Contract. 

A Contingent Contract is one that has conditions attached.  As of January 2012, the NC Real Estate Commission updated the Offer to Purchase form (the form all real estate agents use for their buyers).

Exterior house painting is in full-swing this summer—and whether you are selling your home, or simply maintaining it, you want the job done right. But how do you know the contractors will do a good job?  Well it’s always best to get references so you can inspect their past work if possible.  When in preparation of spending potentially thousands of dollars, it is only wise to do some leg work.  Now, I am not a painting contractor but I am a Licensed General Contractor.

I also touched on any differentiators that you might be able to identify. Lastly, assuming the home you are trying to sell falls into the category of most everyone else’s, what can you do? If you're currently active in selling your home and you are getting little — if any Showings – it’s time to ask "Why?".
