Claudia Will…, Home Seller in 94511

Want to sell so I can buy!

Asked by Claudia Williams, 94511 Tue Feb 5, 2013

What are the chances of getting into a home using my existing(newly built 3 year old) home that I am trying to sell as collateral? I do not know how any of this works. I am trying to sell my home first. The homes I am looking at are in the 20-30K range. My current home is 60-65K. As soon as it sells. I want to payoff the "new" home. Is this EVER been done or heard of before? I am in Texas, trying to get over in Louisiana!

I am looking into a bridge loan. I just want to make sure I can sell before I get tied into it, you know. Don't want to take any chances!

What did you decide to do?

You can do a Bridge Loan, which pulls both mortgages together until your current home sells. Contact a lender for specifics and options.

Wait, yes it would. Just use my current home as collateral for the loan until it sells, correct?

I own my current home outright. Would that still apply?
