A non-contingent offer on a new home is one that has no conditions attached to the sale of your current home. So for example, with a bridge loan, you’ll have money for a down payment, which means you won’t need a sale contingency saying you must sell your current home first.
Non-contingent offers are helpful because they put you in a more competitive position against other buyers who are paying in cash or have no contingencies.
