Need to Sell before Buying? Understanding a Contingent Purchase

So you’ve been tossing around the idea of buying a bigger home … maybe you have outgrown your home, and now you have a bit of equity in the home … or perhaps now that you have some equity in the home, you want to downsize in preparation for the future. Or you’re ready to shift from a two-story to a single-story home … Whatever the reason, we’re seeing many “contingent sale” purchases amongst our buyers. This is not to be confused with “dual agency,” as this is two separate transactions … read up more on dual agency here

To explain better, you’re a current home owner that wants to buy another home, BUT in order to buy that other home, you must first sell your current home. Below in our video, we review the Contingency of Purchase form … because this form covers so much, we’re breaking this into a two-part series. We hope you enjoy and please feel free to ask us any questions.
