How Do You Buy A House Before Selling Your Current One?

          

Three options for those who need to buy a home before selling.


Talking Point #1: Make an offer with a home-sale contingency

 

By including a home-sale contingency in your offer, you can purchase the new house once your existing one sells successfully. If your current home doesn’t sell within a certain time frame, you can cancel the purchase contract without any penalties. To sweeten the deal, your agent can explain to the seller that your house will likely sell fast in today’s market.

 

 

Talking Point #2: Finance with a bridge loan

 

A bridge loan is a short-term, high-interest loan. When you buy with a bridge loan, you can use your existing home as collateral to get a loan for your new house. To close your bridge loan faster, try to align the closing dates of your buying and selling transactions.

 

 

Talking Point #3: Use a service that will help you make a cash offer.

 

Companies like Knock and Homeward are revolutionizing the way people buy and sell homes. These types of companies offer game-changing home loan products that let you make competitive cash offers on your dream home before the sale of your current one and help you avoid paying two mortgages simultaneously.
