Jul 14th, 2021 by Real Estate Pro Tips
Welcome to Real Estate Pro Tips.
The topic is how to buy your next home before you sell your current home. You will learn about a home buying strategy using consumer bridge loan financing that provides a competitive edge in our fast pace real estate market. Many homeowners who want to sell are stuck in a holding pattern because they have been told by their lender that they must sell their existing home first to qualify for a home loan. Homeowners are choosing to stay in their homes believe they will not be able to compete with buyers who do not have a home sale contingency or have all cash to purchase a home.
Selling your home first without knowing where you are moving creates anxiety in the homebuying process, especially when the supply of homes for sale is limited. In our competitive real estate market, any contingencies in your purchase offer signal risk to a Seller, especially if the contingency is related to the sale of your current home.
Most home sellers will not accept a purchase offer if there is a contingency for selling another property. One primary reason is the home sale contingency will impact their ability to buy their next home with a chain of home sale contingencies linked to their purchase offer.
One option is to buy your next home before offering your current home for sale.
