Is it possible to get pre approved to buy a home before I've sold my current home?

It will be great if you can coordinate the closing of the two transactions the same day, but it is not an easy task. You can contact a mortgage broker that can explore all your finance situation and give you a preapproved letter based on that information.

It depends on the lender HOWEVER it will reduce the amount you can qualify for .

Yes, it happens all the time and when you put the new house under contract you can make it contingent on selling your old home.

These scenarios are common. Where do you currently live and where are you looking to purchase. I may be able to help you accomplish your goal.

And if your current home needs to be sold so that you can afford the new one, that will just be one 'condition' of the approval.

A conditional approval is easily done same day
