I have never heard of anyone making their sale contingent on their purchase. The other way around is common, although often unappealing to sellers for obvious reaons. As a buyer, I would find that option pretty unappealing. It seems like you could easily get stuck in a nasty loop of contingencies between all of the parties involved.

I've known several people to sell one house before buying another. You can get look into a short-term rental. You might consider whether a friend or relative would give you a place to stay for a bit. You would probably also have to put much of your stuff in storage for a bit.

If you can afford to buy without selling first, you can also simply buy something else and move before marketing your current house. I am doing this in the next couple of months because inventory is so limited in my market I refuse to be forced into buying something I really don't like due to time constraints.

Well technically it is unfinished without flooring. It will depend on the type of mortgage the buyer is getting if the bank will require flooring before closing

That would be a full bath. If one side only has a tub and sink it would need a toilet in order to be called a bath.

No it is not. In calculating square footage we use only the finished area above ground level. We do not use any square footage below ground.

I agree with both Edmund Choi & Joe Sheehan they both gave you good advice. The main question is why you hasen't your home sold yet? Are you priced right? What is your agents marketing plan? Are you getting enough exposure? Do you have an open line of communication with your agent? If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I can be reached at 610-470-7070. I wish you all the best of luck in what ever you decide to do.

Want to chime in and say you dont need a premium membership but it does give more exposure if you would like to have it.

The address is listed now... Thank you! We didn't realize that such detail and direction would need to be provided to ensure we received the level of service we were expecting. I can understand that some sellers may try to avoid drive-bys, however we certainly do not fall into that category because our home is in a desirable area for commuters to Philadelphia and its suburbs and we are not afraid to advertise it.

Also, we are interested in hosting a broker's open house. Just curious - what is your opinion on a broker's open?

Thanks again so very much!
