Buying and selling at the same time can form what is commonly known as a ‘chain’.
A chain is where people buy and sell properties with linked transactions. The chain can vary in length dependant on the number of people who wish to buy and sell in the same transition. The issue with a chain is that you must sell your property first to release the money to allow you to buy. However, each transaction is separate and therefore the speed of progress of all the transactions relies on the slowest. Also, if one transaction fails then it can mean that all the transactions in the chain fail.
