Should I buy before I sell or sell before I buy?
Should I buy before I sell or sell before I buy? Obviously, if you sell first you then have to find a property and try and line up. So a lot of people will like to try and secure a property before they’ve sold. And there’s anxiety that will come with this. Remember though, when you do buy, you can negotiate in your purchase an extended settlement period. The standard is 42 days. You might like to ask for 12 week or 14 week settlement period. And that will give you time to sell your home and line up the settlements and mitigate any risk that might come with buying first.
