What does Under Contract mean? Under contract in real estate is the status or stage of the transaction when an offer has been negotiated to the point of a contract. The contract is not finalized until settlement or closing. Between the contract and closing inspections and financing details are handled by the parties involved in the contract, the buyer and seller. Some details are facilitated by other professionals, your REALTOR®, the lender, and title company. Once the inspections are complete, the financing has been committed to by the lender (unless you are a cash buyer)the status will change to SOLD after the settlement has taken place.

What’s for dinner? Greenmount Station, Good Choice in Hampstead, Maryland What’s for dinner? Greenmount Station, Good Choice in Hampstead, Maryland Its been a goofy week for dinners this week. I started to prepare chicken last night when the overwhelming stench of rotten chicken hit me in the face. Not feeding the family that! Today it was the roast. I've been putting off making the roast, I'm not sure why other than that I didn't really feel like peeling the potatoes. Monday, I forgot to make it, Tuesday was the chicken incident so Chris, my hubby, decided to take matters in his own hands and prepare the roast last night.  I couldn't resist teasing him about it today, I sent a text around noon...."was I supposed to start the roast?" to which he replied "yes" and I simply said "um" and ...
