House Swapping

I read this with interest on Al’s Morning Meeting today because I know of several friends who are having trouble selling their homes in this economy.

I thought this might be a solution for them.  But as the post makes clear, it’s a complicated process and difficult to pull off.  Not impossible though.

Al’s lists several sites that are swap facilitators, such as:

OnLine House Trading

DomuSwap

MK HomeSwap

GoSwap

You can also check out permananet swap listings on CraigsList.

The posting ends with a WSJ article detailing the risks involved with this kind of transaction.
