Dh and I really love a particular house that meets all our criteria. We weren't planning to look until next year once I return to work, but I just happened to find this one.
Here is our dilemma, our current house isn't on the market yet and because dh is self-employed, getting finance is a lot harder.
The finance broker said it would be a yes if I was working. Ds2 is about to turn 8m old, I'm not sure if I should return now (he will be looked after by grandparents) in order to get finance.
Also how do we go about it with our house not on the market, the real estate agent is an old friend of mine and he said he can sell our house too.
But how do we guarantee the new house is ours while ours is on the market? Do we sign a contract saying its sold subject to our house selling within a certain time and subject to finance? We won't have a proper deposit above $20k until ours sells and receives a deposit.
