Let's see if you can follow this scenario.....4 buyers and sellers all need to move by the end of July.
Seller 1 puts his house on the market, but, it does not sell at his price so he lowers it to a reasonable price. Buyer 1 makes an offer that is contingent upon his selling his house. Seller 1 accepts.
Buyer 1 puts his house on the market using the same real estate agent he is using for the purchase of Seller #1's house. His house gets multiple offers and he accepts the one that works best for him. All agree (including #1 ) to close by the end of June. We will now call him Seller #2.
Buyer 2 puts his house on the market. Thankfully, he does not have to sell in order to buy. If he had, then his contract would not have been accepted by seller 2.
Meantime, Seller 1 heads to Wisconsin to buy a house that will be contingent upon successful settlement of his own home in Maryland!
Buyer 2 accepts an offer and his buyer puts in notice to his landlord giving 60 days notice.
Are you confused yet? You should be. Without using real estate who are used to choreographing this crazy dance and staying on top of all the pesky little details, this could turn out to be total chaos by the end of June.
Your agent is going to make sure that all these dominoes fall in line by the end of June and everything goes off without a hitch!
