Selling Highlands Real Estate, Selling Contingency

Selling Highlands real estate can seem a bit complicated when you receive an offer with a selling contingency.  This means an offer to purchase a home is received with a contingency that requires the sale of the buyer’s current property prior to closing.  This is not, on the surface, an ideal offer to receive.  However, this type of contingency can work out just fine.


If you receive a contract to purchase your Highlands property with this type of contingency it does not have to be unfortunate, you can, after all, counter with your own contingency.  A great way to counter this contingency is to require that your home remain active on the market.  Going one step further you can add that in the event you receive another offer the buyer has the option to remove the selling contingency or exit the contract.
