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?

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!
