I get this question a lot when consumers are happy in their current home, but are thinking about moving up after all of their children have moved on. They want to find the perfect new home and move in before selling their current home. Check with your lender to get pre-qualified while living in your current home. They will be able to tell you if this is a situation you can sustain. Sometimes this is an option, but in other cases, it’s not. If you have a home to sell before you purchase a new one, it’s a good idea to get pre-approved for your new home financing before putting your current home on the market to be sure there won’t be any surprises during the process.
