This should be an easy thing, yet sometimes becomes difficult. I agree with all the answers, there are many variables involved. Established builders will start building your home contingent on you selling your current home and then release you from your contract if you can not sell, but it can be heart breaking to see "your" new home go if you are not ready to buy.

Of course the best situation is to go into a new build without a home to sell. If you can't pre-sell your home at least make sure you have a good agent and do not over price the home you are trying to sell.
