QUESTION: Judy on Twitter asks Dave how he feels about purchasing a home to get a good deal before the current house is sold. Dave doesn’t like it.

ANSWER: It’s a really bad idea. You’ll end up with two houses. You’re stuck. You’ve got house fever. Go take a cold shower. Don’t buy another house until yours is sold. You can’t afford it.
