How do you buy a new house if you have to sell your current one and you don’t have anywhere to go in the interim?
I was recently asked this question by a home seller, but they didn’t realize that in this situation we usually close both transactions on the same day. We close on the house the client is selling in the morning, and close on the new home a couple of hours later. This way, no one ends up homeless.
Granted, there’s probably a lot of stuff in the moving truck from the night before, but the point is, you can sell and buy on the very same day so you don’t have to move twice. You may need to make an offer that’s contingent on the sale of your current home. In fact, it’s best to make the offer contingent on the close of your current home, which means you already have an offer on it.
