Be sure to close on the sale of your current home before the purchase of your new home or be prepared to qualify with BOTH mortgage payments.
Best wishes to you, Erik!
I just closed on a home with a contingent contract. The seller was ready to go ahead and get a contract. They finally moved up the closing date so the seller would accept not having a 24-48 hr right of refusal. The buyer wanted to be sure the home would be there for them when theirs is sold and closed on. If you do not have a serious buyer for your home it is more difficult but if you make a good offer and are willing to pay your closing or most of it , the seller should look at it more serious! Hope it works out!
1- How long has the subject property been on the market? If there are no other buyers knocking on their door and you are the only game in town, then the seller would be more open to the idea of a contingent sale.
2- How aggressively are you planning to price your home? If you can show the sellers that you mean business and want to get this done asap, then you have a better chance.
Best of luck,
