Good evening, Jaclynielsen:
I'd get the home on the market in FL if you can price it to sell, then get together a short list of homes in Wilmington that you would like to buy. If you husband has a marital interest in your FL property, or if you are on title or have a marital interest in the NC property, your husband might not qualify as a first time buyer.Your lender and tax preparer or CPA would need to advise you on this. We successfully help clients who sell elsewhere and as soon as they get under contract, come visit us for the "buying weekend". We find a home they like and get it under contract with a closing date a couple days after they existing house sale date. It is very important to have your financing firmly in place. If you appreciate an answer, please give thumbs up. For the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click.
