Say refi for my current owner occupied primary home is going to close 9/5. Can I get into contract to buy a new primary owner occupied house on 9/2, expected to close on 10/2? Different lenders. How will the new lender find out about the old refi? Can I say that I was just shopping for rates if they ask about the credit hit?
Also will the new bank even care if my refi for old bank closes ~20 days prior? Will they deny their application or will inform the old bank (whose refi just closed a few days back)?
What can go wrong?
