A contingency is a condition that must be met in order for a sale to go through. So you may make an offer on a home, with the contingency that, when your lender appraises the property, they find it to be equal the value that the seller listed it at. Or you could have a contingency that you will only hand over any sort of payment after an inspection finds no fault with the property.
