Contingency Breakdown!

Contingencies are a buyer's protection against losing your earnest money deposit (usually required to open escrow).  Common contingencies are; appraisal, inspection, financing and home sale.  We are keenly aware of how important it is to remove contingencies in a timely manner while always operating within the contract and timelines.
