Is it possible for a house with negative equity, and deployment of selling than buying a new home mortgage?

I want to sell my house now, but think I’ll have about $ 30K under what I get. Would I be able to take this amount and roll into the new mortgage loan on a new home?

    Probably not. Your present mortgagee will require the mortgage be satisfied when you sell. Even if they agreed, your new home would have to be priced $ 30K under market just to cover the deficiency and you would need a down payment on top of that.

    You could contact your mortgage lender and attempt to do a short sale, where they agree to accept less than what is owed, but this does damage your credit and is time consuming and a roll of the dice. Other than a short sale, you can wait the market out or bring cash to closing, you cannot carry over debt from one property to another.

    No you cannot sell your home without paying the mortgage in full
    A new lender will not give you a mortgage for more then 80% of the purchase price.
