Hi Eileen, the answer is yes! I have closed several "back to back" closings in my career. I have even closed a back to back to back once. They are always a little tricky and can be somewhat stressful trying to make sure all the stars line up in their correct places, however it can be done. Make sure you have a good realtor, lender and attorney at your side. If you have any further questions feel free to contact me.

Best to you!!

I think you mean close a a property you are selling and one you are buying on the same day...

Yes you can, but you will have to have a team of dedicated professionals on all sides.

The buyer for the home you are selling has to have a lender and a realtor who are on task. You should make sure that ALL contingencies are removed in a timley manner.

As for the home you are buying, you have to make sure your lender can get the loan through underwritting quick fast and in a hurry.

Make sure your agents are in constant conatct with the "OTHER" parties. Keep close contact with ESCROW on BOTH transactions.

Best of Success to You!!!

Hi Eileen,

That is called a back to back closing, and yes, if they are set up right, it can be done - if not, you have to qualifiy for two loans.

I have done several of these working with builders and investors.

Call me if I can help you.

Sure, it's possible....But of course depend on your exact situation and timing of the closing attorneys...

I think you are asking if you can close on a property that you currently on then leave that closing and then go to the next closing and purchase that property. If so, then that is how it is it is typically done. Otherwise, you would have to be able to qualify for two mortgages at the same time if the first property has not closed an sold yet.

That timing is critical and can be difficult to achieve in today's market.

Working with a knowledgeable and seasoned loan officer is critical in today's market. Getting Pre-Qualified is the only way for you to find out your mortgage options. To get Pre-Qualified for your purchase, you can submit your request online at

I think you meant buying. Yes you can but what happens if there is a hiccup in the selling one. If you need the money for the second deal you are going to be stressed. Spread them out
