Summary: You have 3 options

1. Find and buy a home first then sell

This is the least utilized option because many people are unable to qualify and buy a home before selling their house. However, if you can, this is the best option. This is because you have a better chance of winning the home you want.

2. Put your house on the market, close, then become the tenant

Preparing your home, pricing the home, and positioning your home will bring in the most possible buyers which gives you the chance to work with a buyer who can lease the property back to you up to 2 months. This makes you a stronger buyer because your offer will not be contingent upon the sale of your home. 

3. Write a contingent offer upon your house selling

This is the most desired but least successful. This is because when you're competing against buyers and submitting offers on houses with motivated sellers, the sellers will choose another offer. This will make the process very frustrating for you when you keep losing on houses.

Your Buying Experience

We listed our home with the Tosello team on a Thursday and we had a signed contract by Saturday evening. Now, by any measure, this was an outstanding achievement. However for us, even more amazing than the speed of the sale, was the the professional and efficient way the Tosello team, all of them, carried out their activities. They said exactly what they will do and they did exactly what they said, all in a very courteous, friendly and laid-back manner. Thank you so much TEAM TOSELLO for making the selling process so pleasant and stress free. The Banats

Craig was so helpful in helping me find my new home! Craig never made me feel pressured to say yes to any of the homes I didn't see myself living in. I really appreciated that he took the time to learn my style, listen to my wants/needs and showed me as many homes at it took to find "the one." I would recommend not only Craig, but the whole Tosello team to anyone interested in purchasing a new home. They are very professional and knowledgeable.

Best Home Selling Experience! I have sold six homes with six different listing agents prior to working with Paul and Colleen and they are by far the best.   From pre-listing to close they were highly professional and efficient.  They also operate as high functioning team with the sellers reaping  the benefits.  I highly recommend them and will use them again in the future
