Ever seen a listing marked as, “Contingent?” What does that mean?

We’re here to break it down on today’s episode of Real Estate 101.

There are many types. Have you even listed your home, yet? If not, the sellers are probably not going to be really excited about your offer. If your home is listed, then they may consider it. If your home already has a contract, and you're wanting to purchase a sellers' home, that's when they'll be more favorable to accept it.
