It's not about aesthetics or a person's taste. It's not about architectural design for appearance sake or functionality. It's not a fad. At All. It's about lot sizes. If you want a garage on the side or rear with the way lots are cut up and priced your options are limited. You can put it in the front, severely limit the size of the backyard, remove the option of a backyard altogether,, (as permitted by local laws) or take the square footage out of the living space, or buy the adjacent lot. Look up the prices of said lots. That alone kills the option of buying the adjacent lot for most people.. This is becoming the norm in heavily populated and or highly desired locations. As well as any area bought and developed by companies. Developers are buying land and sectioning out land in a way that's most beneficial to their bottom line. ... more

In most cases I suggest you sell first...once complete, then purchase.
You shouldn't really save money trying to combine transactions, but you are at greater risk.

The problem now is some transactions don't close or don't close on time. That could leave you owning two homes. ... more

Frank Zhu answered:

It depends on how much down payment you want to put down, the area where you are buying the house(tax), and your credit score (interest rate).

We can help you in determining how much can you qualify for for a preapproval on your loan.

We are a flat fee lender that gives your the market rate with no points.
