Do you intend on selling your current home and purchasing your next home on the same day?

There are specific rules for acquiring a new primary residence with an FHA loan while currently owning a home with FHA financing. Unless the new purchase is necessitated by a job transfer that would result in you having an unacceptable commute (typically the new property would need to be 100 miles from the old property), the answer is no. However, if you have put your current home on the market, I could see an underwriter giving you an approval. They may require the current home being under contract. Many of my customers start with the belief that they MUST go FHA, yet we find a way to get them into a conventional loan with significantly lower PMI/MIP and none of that 1.75% Up-Front MIP. I encourage you to work with a Mortgage Broker licensed in your state. ~ Bert Carpenter, The LoansA2z Team of NEXA Mortgage ~ NMLS 40586 ~ Licensed in Arizona, California, Georgia, Oregon, and Washington.
