Do you have a place to live once your house sells without having to run out and buy something else? If not, you should probably get pre-approved right when you put your house on the market since you need to be prepared to write an offer on your next house as soon as you have a contract on your current one.

Besides, I'm guessing you wouldn't want to sell your current house unless you were absolutely sure you could qualify to buy another one, right?

The average DOM can vary, it depends on how the property is situated on the market in regards to price and condition. I have sold properties in as little as a day but the average is 60-90 days. You need to keep in mind that the first 3 weeks will get the greatest amount of activity and price and condition are very crucial. ... more

Always be watchful, but it is not uncommon for a seller to use renting as a backup. I did one recently and it rented before receiving an acceptable offer. Of course they still want to sell when the lease is up. Be ready to move at the end of your lease.

Hi Andrew I am a Northwood agent who grew up in Crafton, familiar with Greentree, just sold a house in Crafton Heights. Unless you bought way low and tried to flip (which doesn't sound like your case) You can't expect a profit in 2 year turnaround right now. In 13 to 14 yes but now is too soon Many sellers who have to sell right now (if they bought within the last 2 years) are going to take a loss. Unless you desparately need to sell I'd say wait. I hope your Realtor took many good pictures. Many times houses are a little messy, make sure those photos are good. If your basement is unfinished clean it up by painting the floor. Have your home as clean as possable Good luck ....from Jenny ... more

Hey Joe Buyer...

You know I think the easiestt way to address your concerns is to give a mortgage lender a call. They can go through all of your unique variables and get you pre approved. Don't stop there! It may be a good idea to get more than one lender to quote you.

Before you can go purchase a property, or even look at homes, you will need to have your financing lined up. Get started, who knows if they will extend the credit or not. Remember, you have to close by November 30!
That is less than 90 days out!

Good luck!
Erin
