Tyler is beginning to be a Seller's market. Good homes, at market prices, and in a desired location will sell very quickly. Buyers must act fast!

There are several ways to do this, but you will need to answer too many questions for me to suggest which may be best for you. Find yourself two local pros and see what they can suggest. You need a great agent to help you sell your home and a great lender to get you pre-approved for your next mortgage. Whether you can buy without selling first will depend upon your credit, income, assets etc. Your pros will help you out. ... more

You can't transfer the mortgage. The lender won't allow it. The only possibility would be for her to refinance in her name. But since you say you've "just refinanced," that option appears unlikely.

Transferring the deed is easy, but don't do it. I'm not a lawyer, so this isn't legal advice. However, why in heaven's name would you want to put the deed in her name only? You'd still be responsible for the mortgage, but now you'd have no ownership interest in the property. In 99 cases out of 100, that'd be a terrible decision.

You obviously have some strategy, or some goal you wish to achieve (other than giving up ownership rights while being on the hook for the mortgage). Talk to a real estate lawyer about how to achieve your real goal, whatever that might be.

Hope that helps.

The responses you received so far are based on reality, but I always like to think outside the box. The case of doing an outright exchange is not as easy as so far portrayed, but there are a handful of places and websites you might consider using to achieve your desired outcome. For instance, many people house swap for a period of time. Ideally you may find this as the best solution as once you do in fact get closer to in town you find you miss the comforts of home. Seeing it may only be a summer that you'll have to deal with your homesickness as opposed to a permanent exchange, you'll be comforted to know such a situation doesn't exist and you will have your home back shortly. While there are pros and cons to these type of arrangements, the more you network on these type of services the more you opportunities you'll have to find just the right place and right situation. Consider it a great way to take a vacation as others would enjoy the lake front opportunity you're giving them. You never really know what you had until it's gone. ... more

Consult with an attorney who specializes in real estate and see exactly what options you may have--he/she is your best source of advise at this point.

If the buyer backed out due to your inspection then you obviously have bigger issues than your average. I can not speak for all realtors but I know I'm only interested in what is of concern for the buyer. I do not want to see the inspection as a whole. That doesn't mean that I don't recieve it at times that way. Its a toss of a can work as an advantage for you because your aware of any issues and can start working on it. Disadvantage is that if you don't know whats already on there its going to show something at a later date. I have clients that feel both ways about it...I want to know in advance....or, No, I don't want to know at all because it may not be an issue for someone else. Its a perception thing anyway, you know, what bugs me may not bug you and so on. We all have our pet peeves! Your agent, however, was not in the wrong at all. You do sound however as though your not happy with that agent. My advice would be that if there are hard feelings at this time based on that you might want to think about finding a new one and discuss with the new one upfront how things will transpire or how they personally do things. You may find they do things in a different manner than the current one and in a way that is more acceptable for you. Me personally, if your not happy and feel I've done you wrong, warranted or not, I'd rather you move on to a place your more content with. ... more
