My commute is about to become very terrible for an extended period of time. I don’t like this.

So the missus and I are currently in the process of looking for a house. The problem is that my realtor has informed me that an offer for a new house containing a contingency clause on the selling of my current house will not be competitive.

Has anyone else gone through this either with short term temporary housing, bridge loans, home equity loan to cover the down payment, or similar tools?

No family to stay with shortly and we aren’t crashing in a friends basement for a couple months while we look for the next place.

For your time.
