Home Selling in Waikoloa>Question Details

Jim Miller, Real Estate Pro in 96017

Is there ever a seller wanting to move to the mainland who would consider trading their Waikoloa home for a similar home there?

Asked by Jim Miller, 96017 Thu Sep 10, 2009

How does a mainland seller connect with the agent of a Waikoloa seller who might be interested in trading? Thanks....

Aloha: He either contacts them directly per the listing contact information or he obtains a buyers agent here who negotiates with the seller's agent to find out if they are even interested in trading. Typically in this market, seller's need the cash to pay off the loan and frequently don't have the ability to do a property exchange. That's why 1031 Exchanges work better for most sellers as it gives them more flexibility. . The tough side is finding the Hawaii seller who wants a property necessarily where the mainland seller is located. Most agents (including myself) have a list of clients who may be open to certain types of trades from the mainland property they own to property here. Keep in mind, a value is attached to the transaction and the agents do obtain a commission just as in 1031 exchanges.

You pose an interesting idea in a unique time of the US economy --- barter.

The best way to barter is to try to have better understanding of the area you want to "trade" to. Just posing general question will result in little and/or time-wasting responses. I would encourage you to be specific about where you want to trade to on the mainland and you should find what you are looking for in your barter offer.
