Mrs. LTB and I have place a signed a contract to buy a new home contingent upon our current home selling. We're trying to move closer to my new church that I am pastor at to better serve the community. My 35 minute commute will turn into a 5 minute commute. Current home is only 8 years old and still in good shape. New home is a newly built construction. We tried selling our home in 2008 to move to SC to be closer to Mrs. LTB's ailing mother. The housing market dried up and we did not sell after a year on the market. No one even gave us an insulting low-ball bid. MIL eventually died and we decided to stay in LA. For those who have had contingency contracts, how did that work out for you?
