Lately, I’ve been asked, “How do I position myself when I’m selling and buying a home at the same time?” For instance, clients might be concerned about whether they should buy or sell first.


First, we help our clients avoid contingent offers. Oftentimes, we’re using different types of loans and applying safety nets on our offers. Financing easily dodges any contingencies, because it shows the buyer you have a way to pay for the transaction.

This strategy helps us work with buyers immediately and start viewing homes. Our goal is to get buyers under contract with their dream home in the least amount of time possible. That helps our buyers list their home and get it under contract quicker because they’ve already purchased a new home. Ultimately, we don’t want our buyers to carry two mortgages for an extended amount of time.
