Then get your listing paperwork ready to go&nbsp;so if&nbsp;the seller accepts your offer you can start marketing the property.<br/><br/>Be prepared to possibly sell for a little less that you might realize if you had more time to meet your deadlines. Remember, that if someone buys your place who has to get financing and that fails, the offer on the place you are buying may fail, and the place that person may be buying might fail also, so lots of attention must be paid to ALL the deals involved.<br/><br/>Alternatively, some lenders offer a "bridge loan" which will get you from one house to another. So, call your local lender or credit union. If you have any equity in your current home and good credit with little debt, there may be other options.<br/><br/>Good luck!
