1. Where will you live if you sell first?
2. What will you do with your stuff if you donโ€™t close on your sale and your new purchase on the same day?
3. Where will you put your money?
4. Will you encounter any mortgage penalties?
5. What is your worst-case scenario?
6. How much uncertainty can you emotionally handle?
7. What is happening in the markets you are buying and selling in?

So, should you buy or sell first?
If youโ€™re moving from a less hot market to a hotter real estate market, you probably want to sell first.
If youโ€™re moving from a red-hot market to a more stagnant market, then buying first might make more sense.
If youโ€™re more concerned with buying the right new home than selling your current home for maximum $ in a short time period, buy first.
If maximizing the sale of your current home is yourย #1ย priority, sell first.
So whatโ€™s the right thing to do?
