You would need to be able to carry mortgages on both house-your current and the new one besides insurance and real estate taxes. If you are moving 30 miles or more (for a job), you can get a FHA mortgage, otherwise you will need to get a conventional mortgage (expect 20% down).

You must have at least 25% to 30% equity in your existing home or the mortgage payment will need to be covered along with your new mortgage (no credit for rental income).

So depending on how high your income is you may be able to qualify.

To determine if you have at least 25 to 30% equity, contact a local Realtor for an estimate of value of your current home.

All the best,
