A house listed as “bumpable” means the seller has accepted an offer that is contingent upon the buyer meeting some condition, but the seller can accept a subsequent offer and “bump” the first offer if the subsequent offer does not contain the same contingency. This can occur when a buyer’s offer is contingent upon the buyer selling his own home. If a subsequent buyer submits an offer that is not contingent upon selling a home, the seller can accept the subsequent buyer’s offer over the first buyer’s offer, meaning the first buyer’s offer was “bumpable.”
