I have been active in real estate for close to 35 years. I am licensed in Oregon and Montana. Today the real estate market is a real challenge to all of us. One way to find a buyer is to exchange property or trade it. There are tax issues in some situations so do your homework. As the saying goes "if there is a will there is a way!" The difficulty many folks have is they expect me to like your property and you to like mine. Nice thought but more likely I like yours you like some one elses and we need to find the third leg of the transaction. This takes a large network and a lot of patience to get the pieces together. For starters you need exposure, You need to price the property to be competative with the market. The diffculty is when we live in different parts of the country values will be different. How do make sure we are trading or exchanging true value for each area. Do you expect to sell your property in a subdivison for a price similar to a lake front home? So land value as well as improvements have to be realistic for all involved. More times than not it takes a professional to establish the true market vakue, So if you think you can trade and save a commission, maybe but more likely you will need a professionals to complete the transaction.
