Should I buy first, or sell first?

While this is a decision that rests with you, your real estate professional will be able to give you some good guidance in making this decision. If there are a number of homes available that you would consider investing in as your next home, then you probably should list your home first. If you are looking for an un-common type of home, or there is a definite shortage of homes that meet your criteria, some believe that you should hold off on listing your home until you find a home that will be suitable for your next home. We recommend that you get your home on the market, and make any offer on your current home conditional upon your finding suitable accommodation.

As with the other factors in selling and buying a home, the laws of supply and demand will have a major bearing on your decision.
