2nd Home purchase

Is it possible to purchase a 2nd primary residence while you have your current home listed?

If the bank will approve you for the second loan before the first is paid off, then sure. Can you afford both notes if something happens and the first one doesn't sell? That's probably the biggest issue if you get approved for both.

a lender told me not to refinance my present residence which I plan to convert to a rental eventually or else I wouldn't be able to get another primary loan for 12 months.

We had no issue with it. Purchased second place while other was still on the market. Had two mortgages for about 6 months.

Yes. Generally minimum 10% down on 2nd homes, although some investors will allow 5% down. Should not be a problem if you have your present primary home listed.

you can buy a second home with 5% down. it needs to be at least 40miles from your current home.
