Hi, in the sentence "if you want to get your house sold fast, you need to strike while the iron is hot", there are two verbs in the if-clause. The first one is infinitive - to get-and the second one is sold. My question is why the second verb is in past tense. Is that always the case, such that, when there are two verbs in a row, the second one is alwasy in the past tense. I'd really appreciate it if you can answer this for me. Thanks.
