Non-Contingent offers

WIth housing inventory at all time lows, it is harder than ever to buy a home.  One way to get an offer accepted is to make an offer with no contingencies.  Here are a few questions and answers regarding this type of offer.

Q. Can I write a non-contingent offer if I am using mortgage financing?
A. Yes, if you are able to make up the difference between the appraised value and the contract sales price in the event that the home appraises low.

Q. Can I write a non-contingent offer using VA financing?  
A. Yes, the same answer would apply - if you have the funds to make up the difference between between the sale contract price and a low appraisal, you can safely write a VA offer with no contingencies

Q.  Is there any risk if I write a non-contingent offer?
A.  There could be risk if your loan is not fully approved before you make your offer.  Our Single Point of Contact Loan Officer's are trained to have your file fully underwritten before advising you to make a non-contingent offer.

You should always make sure that your Realtor and your Loan Officer are on the same page before submitting a non-contingent offer.
