Talking about an overlap of about a month until the old home is sold.

Thanks, Mitch
Assuming you have an investment account with your retirement accounts? Your broker should be able to lend you money on the short term at very low rates with minimal fuss. What I did to avoid selling assets and b able to make an all cash offer for a better deal. Then after purchase took out a mortgage and paid off the bridge-loan.
