I'd Like to Trade My House for Your House...A New Trend?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

www.claninhomes.comI'm beginning to see a renew trend here in San Diego.  Recently, I received three offers where a buyer wants to trade their home for my listing.  I have also talked with other agents who have had similar transactions lately. This can be a viable option for some who wants to move up into a larger home, or downsize, and don't want to wait to sell their home before purchasing their next one.  Even if your home has a loan on it, as long as you're not upside down on the loan, it can be done. The transaction is complicated so it's important that you have an agent who is experienced in this area.  However, this can be a win-win transaction for all parties.  Considering it, but have more questions?  Please feel free to contact me 619-277-3775.

I've not had any such requests myself, but it does sound like it would be very complicated.....
