TIPS FOR BUYING AND SELLING A HOME AT THE SAME TIME
STEP 1: Find and work with and experienced Real Estate Agent. When dealing with 2 properties, it's important that everyone stays on top of deadlines and requirements. "MY JOB" would be to ensure that this happens. I have helped numerous families through a challenging escrow where there are 3 or more parties all trying to coordinate and close on time wit much success. Experience really does matter!
STEP 2: Talk to your lender. As you look for a new home, you need to stay in contact with your lender and get prequalified or pre-approved for a new loan. You can attempt to qualify for a new loan while carrying your original loan (if you have enough cash) or qualify based on a "pending sale" status. Your current mortgage would not be included; only the new one would be used to determine how much you can borrow.(This is a contingency based on the pending sale of your current home).
