Selling your house before buying the next – advice
If you’re selling your house, you might want to complete that process before buying your next home because waiting until you’ve sold your existing property has several benefits.
Popular questions we receive about selling a home before buying a new one
In conversations with homeowners, sometimes we’re asked various questions and for advice about selling properties before buying new ones, and these are the ones that recur often:
✅ Am I required to buy a new house before selling my existing home?
No. There’s no mandate that you need to have started the purchase process on a new home before you can sell your existing place. As described above, there are in fact several pros from waiting until you’ve sold before searching for a new house or flat.
✅ How will I know when it's the right time to buy a new property?
The answer is going to depend on a host of factors that are unique to you, including whether there’s a particular home you’re interested in – if you wait until after selling, you might be able to get that same house for a lower price if property values drop.
✅ Is it better to wait until selling before buying a new house or not?
Again, this will be an answer that depends on your individual circumstances including your financial needs. But generally speaking, the pros of selling your home before buying a new one can outweigh the negatives.
