Victory Property Management answered:
Trading homes is possible. The buyer who is purchasing the larger home would pay the difference in the sales price. The problem is that finding a buyer willing to buy your home and you wanting their home can be a little tricky.

It is a better idea to sell your home and then after that transaction, you purchase a larger home. You could negotiate with the buyer to rent your home until you find a new one or you could rent somewhere for a few months. Another option is to time the sale and purchase so that you close almost simultaneously. If your income is high enough, you might even be able to close and move into your new house before the old one closes, but then you would have two mortgage payments which isn't very much fun.

Either way, congratulations and good luck!

FSBO can't list on Trulia - but you can on Zillow! We are FSBOing our house - we have it listed on Zillow and get all kinds of updates about the market that way and how often it's being looked at... Trulia has really dropped the ball on this one - I suggest checking out Zillow. :) Good luck! ... more

Hi Mira,

Sorry no one has attempted to answer your question. I can get you up to the minute stats, if you like. But I should ask....have you sold your house already?

My NC Homes Team answered:
That is correct. There will also be HOA rules and regulations that you will want to be aware of. I think one of the most important thing a home-buyer can do when considering a home that is part of an HOA is to review these bylaws so that you understand what they are before you purchase and to take a look at the HOA's most current financial statement to make certain that you're not buying into a development that isn't properly funded. The last thing any home-buyer wants is unexpected special assessments. You should ask your buyer broker to get you these very early on during the due diligence period. I've attached a link below that gives a lot more information on this subject.

Happy House Hunting!

Hi Brenda,
I usually recommend IPM corp. - you may have seen their ads - "Tons of RENTALS"? Here is the link to their website, I hope they can help! They are very nice and really do have a tons of rentals!!

You mention your finances are limited, have you considered purchasing a home? You'd be surprised at how easy it can be - even with limited funds! Seller's can pay your closing costs or buy down your interest rates WHICH ARE ALREADY AT AN ALL TIME LOW (Meaning you could probably OWN a home and pay a less monthly payment than renting a home!) If you want to talk about this, let me know!

Hi Diana. You probably have found something by now (at least I hope so!)

You may also want to consider seller financing available on homes in the Asheville NC area and/or lease purchases.

Sometimes you can lease purchase a home for a non-refundable small amount down, which means you then get the option to buy the home after a pre-agreed period of time for a pre-agreed price, or you may choose not to go ahead. Not all homes listed as Asheville NC homes for sale necessarily note that they can be sold through the Asheville NC lease purchase process, however we can investigate that for you. There are also many properties that are directly listed as Asheville NC lease purchase homes which will be listed here. Call 828 210 1648. We will be happy to guide you through the process. Here is a link to rental homes which also included links to lease purchase and seller financed homes.

Brenda, you may want to check on Craigslist or Yahoo to locate a rental in this area. Hope this helps.
