Next year, we are planning on selling a condo and buying a house. We can’t move our things into the new house until we settle, but we don’t want to pay two mortgages. Also, the house is owned by a relative, so there may be some leeway as to when we can move our stuff in.
What would be the ideal schedule for the two settlements? If you could do your buying/selling real estate all over, what would have been your perfect situation?
