What does contingent mean in real estate?

“Contingent” in any sense means “depending on certain circumstances.” In real estate, when a house is listed as contingent, it means that an offer has been made and accepted, but before the deal is complete, some additional criteria must be met.

Can you put an offer in on a contingent house?

In most cases, putting an offer in on a contingent home is an option to consider. Although it doesn’t guarantee you’ll close on the home, it does mean you could be first in line should the current contract fall through. Putting an offer in on a contingent home is similar to the homebuying process of any active listing.

How do you bump a contingent offer?

The bump clause allows the seller to accept another offer, so long as the seller notifies the original buyers and sees if they will waive their contingency. If not, the buyer accepts the new offer and the first buyer receives the payment they put down.
