Mary, your best bet is to just get your house listed for sale. That is, if you need to sell in order to buy. If you market the home and price it right it will sell. You can then look for your "retirement" home. Once you start to actually look there is a good chance you wil find something else you love. Everything will fall into place as it should. Good luck!

Mary, If you list your home, the broker can put comments in the MLS that states you would be open to a trade. This can be placed in an area private only to agents, or public, to all home buyers.

Nice thought, hard to do, you have to love their home and they have to fall in love with yours, and believe me we all have a different taste and feeling to what we like or dislike in a home. Therefore
this solution is very difficult to attain.

The best would be to prepare you home for sale, and list it with a good local Realtor, if you need a recommendation get back to me.... And while your home is on the market, start looking around for that retirement home on a lake and there are many many lake homes in Wisconsin, so you should have
a lot of choices, since in retirement you do not depend on your job site and commute anymore, you can just go for what you truly love and where you want to retire to....

Hope this helps a little

Mary trading home is rare. The sellers of the home you want to sell need to find their dreamhome in your home. That normally does not happen.
