    For many Sellers and agents, home sale contingency is so distressing.  However,  in our market, particularly, our luxury market here in Prince William County and Lake Manassas, most buyers need to sell their home in order to buy a larger home.   I meet homeowners all the time that want to move up to a newer or larger home; however, they are fearful of trying a contingent offer.  The fear of rejection is a real fear for these buyers.  There is a fear from a buyer's agent not comfortable presenting a contingent offer.  Our industry, in general, has made a contingent offer a monster proposition.  For many agents and sellers alike, a contingent offer is a non-starter.  But let’s be real, not everyone is capable of purchasing a Million Dollar Listing

    How to use equity in your home
