How to purchase a new home before selling my existing homeI currently own (no mortgage) my home and am interested in upgrading to another. I would prefer not to sell my existing home until I find another home in the event that I well my existing home in short order. I am in no rush to purchase in the upgraded home, but would be in the event I sell my existing home. My agent would like us to put our existing home on the market, but I have been reluctant to do so. I do need the proceeds from my home to help pay for the upgraded home, but I do have more than enough "cash" to put down a 20 % on the new home prior to using the proceeds of my existing home (after it is sold). I am looking for advice on how to proceed with this transaction.January 02 2013 - Manhattan Beach00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
