Congrats on your pending move, Erin.. If your debt to income ratios qualify with both homes, and your down payment funds are not the equity in your current home, no documentation of the sale of your current home should be required. It's probably more likely you're using some of the existing equity for the down payment, and in that case, your new lender would need proof your current home sold and you received the proceeds at or before closing on your new home. Hope that helps! Ted
