I’m getting ready to sell my house in the next year. Of course I’m also buying a new house. I don’t really want to mess with making a contingent offer because it’s likely not going to be accepted. I actually don’t mind paying 2 mortgages if it’s only a month or two. My issue is when getting pre-approved, looking at current debt, do they count your current mortgage even though you are selling your home? I can’t have my current mortgage payment showing as debt. That would not allow me to be approved for much at all. Is there any way around this? United States, midwest.
