Buy First, or Sell First?

MARTIN, LEON: buy_first_sell_first.jpgThis can be a difficult question to answer, however, the answer is most often based on personal preference. If you purchase your new home before you reach an agreement to sell your current home, you will end up with two homes. Conversely, if you wait for a better offer, you could end up living in a motel.

Your realtor and lawyer may be able to help you perfectly time your buy and sell dates by making it ‘conditional’ that your offer to purchase only stands if your present home sells. On the other hand, if you receive an offer, you can negotiate the closing date, until the sale of your current home is complete. This will give you more time to find your next home.

You may worry that you will find your dream home the day after you put your home up for sale.  Don't. Bridge financing is always a solution.
