To have a chance, you will want to show that your home is actively listed, better yet that you have an accepted offer in hand, even better than you have made progress on clearing contingencies - ie, inspection and mortgage - on your sale.
The cleanest way to do this would be to sell first so that you have the proceeds available for your purchase.
Good luck and best,

Hi Bob,We are local Realtors who specialize in listing properties in Bergen County. We will get your property sold fast and for the most money possible.
By listing your property with us, you will reach 1000â€™s more buyers through our marketing efforts. Studies show that your property will sell for a 16% higher price if you list with a Realtor. We advertise on the MLS as well as approximately 1200 websites through our interface data exchange subscription. These sites are both local (ie NJMLS) and at a national level (Realtor.com) This way your listing gets maximum exposure.
In addition to maximizing your exposure, we offer a value added service. If you would like, we have a home staging professional on staff that can come to your home, tour your home, and create a report of things that you can do to help make your home stand out and sell faster and for more money. This consultation is free to you. Statistics show that homes that are staged have a greater success rate for selling. We can explain more about this process and itâ€™s benefits. We will work hard to get you the most money out of your home.
We can show the property by appointment only or by installing a lockbox which is only accessible by licensed Realtors. This is up to you.
We also handle all of the negotiations and paperwork (contract of sale, lead paint disclosure, sellers disclosures, etc). It is proven that you will get a higher price for your property if there is an intermediary/negotiator involved.
We would like to preview your home. Perhaps we can set up a meeting one evening next week?
