Selling old home while building new, please help me understand

Just curious, what do most people do as far as timing of selling their current home while building new? I'm sure it depends on each situation.
We have 100% equity in our current home, so I assume there is no rush to put it on the market. In fact, I thought we could build new, then not even list the old until we've moved out. Then I could clean it really well (we have 3 little ones) and it would be ready for viewings.
Today a neighbor came by to say that he heard we're building and he's interested in our house! I don't want to get my hopes up, but that would be fabulous! But will he wait a year, or even more while we build? Too many unknowns!
