Buy before Sell...How to get a downpaymentI am looking to buy a new home for about $375k and would like to put 20% down ($75k) to avoid PMI. I currently have a house worth about $200k with about $100k in equity. The problem is that most likely I will buy a new house before I sell the old one. How can I use the equity in my current house on the new house without actually selling the current one first?December 26 2008 - Madison0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
