Should you buy or sell first?

Good points exist for either approach, but because each situation is unique, there are no "right" or "wrong" answers.

Selling First


  • Peace of mind
  • Know "net dollar" from your sale
  • Can focus on new home purchase
  • May strengthen negotiating position


  • Inability to purchase house before possession date
  • May exceed your original purchasing budget
  • Your Sutton real estate broker can assist you in deciding which method to consider
