Most people get a bridge loan so they can buy a new house, then sell their old place (highly motivated seller).

You can also look into renting the old one until it sells.

As long as you can cover both loans for what may be an extended period of time.

It's done all the time. Many seller's accept contingencies. If the offer is accepted with the contingency, you won't lose out.
