Hi Berta - As the others have said, it is highly unlikely that this would work.

Your more likely option would be to sell your Minnesota home and then purchase in Florida. That said, there may be alternatives like renting your home in Minnesota or some other lender mitigation option. To explore all of your options feel free to contact me as I know Apple Valley extremely well.

It is highly unlikely that a bank would ever do this - their systems are not set up for anything like that and with today's market they have to follow a strict set of company policies.

If it did please let me know because I would be aboslutely shocked. Banks arent in the business of Real Estate so they would not be trying to aquire property more than they would absolutely have to. This swap could work with a potential seller in Florida though.
