can house for sale be used to get a small home equity loan since………?

since if the house was not for sale, the bank might have to force the sale of the house to get their money. And since the house is for sale, that is “how” they are guaranteed to get their money.

why or why not?
amounts you can borrow?
payback periods?
not looking to delay payments until house is sold, just looking for a loan so I can buy the smaller home before the other one sells. I’ll basically have two deeds, stocks and other cash as collaterol.
