Every real estate transaction involves risk, whether you are the buyer or the seller. And during a real estate transaction, either party can include specific contingencies to help mitigate some of the risks. Common contingencies may allow either party to back out of a contract if specified conditions are not met, such as:
- A satisfactory home inspection
- A home appraisal that meets the lender’s requirements
- Final approval of the buyer’s home loan
