Zillow Advice: Home Buying - can i buy a house contingent on my house selling? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/can-i-buy-a-house-contingent-on-my-house-selling/499982/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Hello,Yes, &nbsp;you can ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/can-i-buy-a-house-contingent-on-my-house-selling/499982/ Hello,<br/>Yes, &nbsp;you can put an offer on a home with a contingency that your home sells. &nbsp;In my experience, you need to have your home on the market as the seller will ask for proof, or you can wait till you have a viable offer on your home.&nbsp;<br/><br/>Best of Luck!<br/><br/>Sincerely,<br/>Cindy Keil&nbsp; Mon, 27 Jan 2014 19:22:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/can-i-buy-a-house-contingent-on-my-house-selling/499982/ 2014-01-27T19:22:00Z Yes, but a lot of sellers ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/can-i-buy-a-house-contingent-on-my-house-selling/499982/ Yes, but a lot of sellers will not want to accept your offer. Too many things can go wrong with your escrow causing you not to be able to perform with their closing escrow.<br/><br/>The best position to be in, is sell you home, then have cash ready in hand to make your new home's purchase. Good luck!
