Get a FREE home value reportWant to buy a home? Search all homes for saleWe find that many people buying a new home don't want to put their home on the market until they've found a new home to buy. However, many of these sellers also can't afford to pay a mortgage on two houses at once. If you have to sell your house in order to pay for the next one, you need to be careful about the process so you don't wind up without a home temporarily. The main thing we can do to protect you is making an offer to buy your next house that's contingent on you finding a home of your choosing. This protects you as a seller by ensuring that if you sell your house, the sale will only go through if you find a new house to buy, keeping you from winding up without a home.Make your home sale contingent on finding your next home.If you have any other questions about buying and selling real estate here in the Twin Cities, don't hesitate to give me a call or send me an email soon.
