In a perfect world, you would be selling your home and buying another home all on the same day. That's how I did it 9 years ago! Given that in reality that we don't always live in a perfect world, here are some important things to remember when selling your home and buying another home.
BUYING ANOTHER HOME FIRST
It happens. You’re only thinking of buying, and suddenly the right home shows up. Now you have to sell your home quickly. Here are some tips on making things work in your favor:
SELLING YOUR HOME AND BUYING ANOTHER HOME IN THE SAME TOWN/AREA OR OUT OF AREA
Generally, if you’re selling your home and buying another in the same town/area, you can negotiate closing dates to work for you. You should also be using the agent selling your home to buy another home with. Choosing the same real estate agent to sell your home and buy your new one can make all the difference, turning an otherwise difficult, stressful process into a comfortable, smooth experience. When your buying agent is not your listing agent, it can be daunting for all parties. But when you’re dealing with an out of area move, it’s a bit harder. But with local real estate agent working selling your home, it should be less stressful and they should be able to assist you in locating a real estate agent in your new location.
YOUR FINANCES WHEN SELLING YOUR HOME AND BUYING ANOTHER HOME
Make sure you have a tight hold on, and a clear understanding of, your financial situation when selling your home and buying another home. Speak with your local bank and/or lender to determine your financial options. Your real estate agent should also be able to provide you with reputable loan officer and lender information.
