If the sale proceeds is negative, it will be what they call a "negative sale" and hence there will not be any cash proceeds after the sale. You still can purchase the next resale HDB no issue, provided the funds are planned smoothly and coordinated such that the transition is smooth.
Do note for negative sale cases, you need to sell at or above market valuation so that you need not top up in cash after the sale for the CPF utilized + accrued interest for the current home (which needs to be refunded).
I have worked on similar cases and would be happy to share the best approach. May I have more info and requirements about your plans so to make better recommendations? Thanks and look forward to value-add to your housing plans.

Ivan was the first and only agent that we met before engaging him as our exclusive agent. At the first meeting, Ivan meticulously went through the entire sale process. As we were not familiar with the procedures, he spent extra time to explain what was required from us and what we should expect.
After a week of preparation, Ivan came to take photographs, and once the advertisements were up, we had interested parties coming to view the apartment the very next day. Within a week, we had secured an offer from the buyer. Ivan was reliable and responsive, and he made the entire process smooth and hassle free
