    Sell Your Present Home First, Then Buy Your New One

    This may be the safest move, although multiple moves may be involved. Primarily, when the first move is completed, your furniture goes into storage. You would then move into a temporary rental or enter into a rent-back agreement with the new owner. You now know how much to spend on your new home. With less pressure, you will not have to take the first offer on your home or accept an offer that is below your asking price. It might be a bit disruptive if your dream Gulfport home search takes a long time.


    Buy Your Dream Home, Then Sell Your Present One

    There is less disruption in this plan; you move into your new home when ready, all the while preparing your old home for sale. Working best if your home is paid off, you might find yourself paying two mortgages at the same time. You can also rent out your old home, but you will be responsible for its repairs, renovation or upkeep.


    Sell and Buy at the Same Time

    You might face one of the scenarios above if the time frame does not work; the financial aspect must have good timing. Bridge financing may allow you to own both homes at the same time; it may involve borrowing money from family or a short term loan from the bank to cover the time period between the closing of your new home and the selling of your old one.

    Testimonials

    “As a first time home buyer, I didn’t really know of what to expect. After meeting with Amanda and talking with her the first time, I felt comfortable enough to ask lots of questions and she was very patient with me. As we closed on our house today, I cannot be any happier that Amanda’s team is the one that helped me along the way. She has gone above and beyond my expectations. Thank you to your team for a great job!”
