When it’s time to say goodbye to your beloved home, a lot can go into getting it ready to sell. You’ll have to visit the bank, find a good Realtor, make minor updates, and be ready for showings at any time.
Also, you have to find somewhere new to live. You’ve likely built some equity into your current home, which can be used toward a down payment on the new place if you can sell it before closing on the place you want to live next.
This is known as a contingent offer, and you should understand what it entails before making or accepting one.
