I can highly recommend Kristine Bredeau with HomeBanc. She can evaluate your financial situation and give you a genuine answer as to whether or not you can buy before you sell your existing property.
If you decide to sell, you may want to RUSH to get it immediately on the market as the First Time Homebuyer $8k free money from the IRS and the $6,500 free money for long term homeowners will expire on April 30th!
You can very likely get a contract on a new property once you have a contract on your existing property in Brooksville.
Here is Kristine's info:
