As an aside, sometimes if buyers' do have other funds and can buy the house non-contingent, they just may feel more comfortable making a contingent offer and try to get their home sold as it can sometimes be challenging thinking about owning two homes. Everyone so far has given great advice. But I wouldn't rule out adding allowing them to 'add' a paragraph that if their contingency is called and they 'do' have the ability to purchase without selling their home that they can, at the sellers' option and acceptance of proof of ability.
