We own our own home so it isn't like we've never done this before. However, this time around we have kids and also need to sell our current home plus find a new one. We just got pre-approved last week. Yesterday my dh dropped off some paperwork to our Mortgage Broker and she asked him if we put our house on the market yet....what?? I guess I'm just confused how this will all work out. I'm worried if we put our house up now and it sells quickly that we won't be able to find a new house soon. And then we also need to make sure that our house is sold before we buy. Ugh!! And not to mention the whole process of keeping our house clean 24/7 to show it and pack for the new place. Ok vent over.
