Gee, Other/Just Looking in 94598

Would like to consider an even trade of our 5 BR home for a condo at the Mercer or Montecito.?

Asked by Gee, 94598 Thu Feb 5, 2009

We owe app. $648K on a Walnut Creek home valued @ $1 million. Our house is in the Northgate area and has app. 2700sq. ft., pool, spa, gas grill, etc. How does this work?

I am trying to think about why you would want to do that. If your WC home is really worth 1 million in this market why not sell and have more flexibility. Mercer condos are not worth anywhere near what they were when sold new and there are only 2 for sale there now. I have one of them for sale there now listed for a full 200k less than she bought it for .

Your question seems like trading in a car for a brand new one. Most people don't think about it, but it's really 2 TRANSACTIONS, the sale of your old car to the dealer and the purchase of a new car at the same dealer.

With that in mind, treat your situation as the same.

Gee, do you want to list your home for sale, or are you looking to actually trade your home?

Best, Steve
