There are pros and cons on both sides, so what you need is to see an objective market analysis on your own property, and an estimated net sheet based upon a realistic sales price if you sold the property straight up without the trade. Then, you can make an informed decision about whether the trade scenario is for you. Realty Central works with an excellent, reputable builder who will consider trades located in Amarillo and Canyon. I would love to meet with you at no cost or obligation to discuss it further. You may contact me at 806-236-5100 or email@example.com.
Better to sell first, and once your home is sold, then go shopping.
It's like the car business, where when you trade your old car they give your $1000 or $2000, but you could have sold it for $8000 on your own. Maybe more hassle for you and goes much quicker, but not the best idea money wise.
