It’s wise to follow your Realtor’s advice and avoid making firm plans until the buyer’s contingencies are removed. This is a common practice in real estate transactions to ensure that the sale progresses smoothly. Contingencies are conditions that must be met for the sale to proceed, and until they are removed, there’s a level of uncertainty.

Once the contingencies are removed, it generally means that the buyer is satisfied with the property and is committed to moving forward with the purchase. At that point, you can make more concrete plans for your move. If you have any specific questions or concerns about the real estate process, feel free to ask.

Don’t cancel utilities, gardeners, or any services without consulting your Realtor.
