Contingent Upon Touring The Seller's Home

In the land of contingencies...the one that happens less often may be, "Contingent upon touring the seller's home."

Most of mybuyer clients usually step foot on the property beforewriting an offer. The most common contingencies ones are...

  • Contingency to sell your home before you close on another.
  • Contingent upon buyer obtaining proper financing.
  • Contingent upon seller to pay X amount toward buyer's closing costs.
  • Contingent upon a satisfactory home inspection.
  • Contingent upon the house appraising at purchase price or higher.

Lexington KY homes for saleYada, Yada, Yada.......

Many of my buyers are from out of state and make plans in the near future to come check out the listings I have sent them.

This all takes a considerable amount of researching both the buyers and the listings to find the perfect home.

Usually, they are very excited about visiting our beautiful state. 

Local buyers get in the car and get over there fast to check out the property so they can be the first ones to get an offer in.

I have still had to present offers in a multiple offer situation this year. 

I have one client that closed and moved into a house sight unseen.

Only pictures and a few phone calls after I toured the home sufficed for them to write an offer.

Nice properties priced right don't stick around.

I do know of an agent that wrote an offer for his client"Contingent upon touring the seller's home". It was newly listed and he knew that numerous agents had called the listing agent to make appointments to view the house that day.  

His offer was accepted and his client got the house. The other agents didn't have much of a chance. Many of their clients were not prepared to write an offer on the spot without more research. 

Many times I have to try to find a replacement house after the out of town buyers get here and the home they were fixated on the Internet so long is already under contract. I'd love to write an offer for them"contingent upon touring the seller's home" if I know it is perfect house for them and they will be here soon.

Hey....did I just wake from a dream? I thought I had found just the perfect house for you...
