Buying new home before selling old home ...I'm looking to buy in Alexandria, VA (jumbo) before I sell in Houston, TX (~$300k equity and will be sold by Summer) and am told by my existing lender I need +740 FICO (no problem), at least 20% down (no problem), closing costs (no problem), 9 months of reserves for housing costs on both houses (might be $10-$20k short) and a DTI of 43% (I'm just a little bit over on this). Are these typical requirements for buying with a jumbo before selling?December 12 2013 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
