As many of my fellow agents have said, there are a number of possibilities with regard to making the purchase of the home you're interested in. Placing a contingent offer may be an option, but contingencies can be complicated, and there is always the potential for disappointment should your current house not sell in the meantime. Mr. Tabit's comments are wise in this situation. If you are currently represented by an agent in the sale of your house, a conversation about timing and motivation may be order. If you are representing yourselves in a For Sale By Owner situation, I would strongly advise you to consider utilizing the skills and marketing expertise of a professional Realtor in order to sell your house quickly. I would be more than happy to speak with you about what I can accomplish for you in either the sale of your existing house, or the purchase of your dream home if you are unrepresented. Please do not hesitate to let me know of I may answer any other questions, or help you as you negotiate the real estate market. I'm available by email, phone, or text at any time.
