TradeThisHouse.ca – Welcome Home

Welcome to Trade This House – Canada’s first online home trading search engine. As the real estate market continues to evolve, one thing has remains constant: people need to buy and sell homes.

It can be a difficult process, but we make it easier.

Many people have found themselves in a position where they either want or need to move, but selling their current home is the hurdle that lay before them. With average market times well over 6 months in some cases, there can be enormous advantages to buying and selling simultaneously. Many home traders have found that it can be very difficult to get the price they need in order to make their move. Trading enables people to preserve their equity so that they have enough of a down payment to move forward.

We provide solutions.

TradeThisHouse gives home owners the opportunity to sell their home and buy a new one simultaneously. When you have as many match scenarios as we do, its very likely that someone within this site, has exactly what you want to move into and more importantly, wants what you currently need to sell. We connect these buyers and sellers together much like a dating site would singles.

Whether you’re moving up, downsizing, relocating, shifting investments, or any of the many reasons people choose to make a change, our system matches you with another property owner trying to do the same thing you are: get out of their current situation and into a new one. We help facilitate the both of you.

This site is tailored to motivated buyers and sellers who are looking for the right deal.

Whether its job relocation, retirement, or any of the many reasons people choose to make a change, our system matches you with another property owner trying to do the same thing you are: get out of your current home and into a new one. We help facilitate the both of you.

Testimonials

My little one bedroom condo had become a little cramped not to mention the strata in my building voted in favor of becoming a 55 plus building, I am 28. I had made the decision to purchase a house with a bit of property. I had my condo on the market for 8 months to no avail, my realtor was working hard, but prices had fallen and if I reduced any further, I wouldn’t have any equity to purchase the house. He came to me with a solution, He had found a house seller in a similar situation, they too had been on the market for over 6 months, their house was sitting empty costing them thousands each month. They took my condo at a price that left me just enough equity to make the move and do a few renovations. Win/Win.

We decided to build our first new home project, back in late 2007 when there seemed to be no end in sight, 6 months later when we finally finished our beautiful project in upper mission, things had changed, other builders were running for cover and my realtor gave us the stats on the out of whack supply and the miniscule demand, we forged ahead anyway sure that a buyer would appreciate the quality and attention to detail, 3 months later and 15k in carrying costs we still had no offer. Enter trade this house, we ended up taking on a condo worth 200k less than our home, upon closing, we had gotten our original money back from the build (our life savings) we no longer had a 5k/mo builders mortgage and we were free to move on to other endeavors. It was a small compromise to take on the condo that with a good tenant in place, completely covers itself, we look at it like a holding tank for our profit.

When my girlfriend and I decided to move in together, my condo was no longer big enough, mostly because of all the closet space I suddenly required. My condo unfortunately had gone down in value just enough that I wouldn’t have had the necessary equity to move up to a house. Tradethishouse.ca was able to trade my condo at a price that allowed me to buy a big beautiful house. It was the perfect solution to our problem.

Our old house in Lake Country had sat on the market for nearly a year. We had recently built a new one and moved into it. Carrying both was a challenge. We had reduced the price as far as we were willing to go and still no offers. Tradethishouse matched us up with a 1 bed condo owner and we each bought each others property. We got almost all of our money out of the house and the little condo’s mortgage is less than half of what we had. We may just end up keeping it as a little investment property! Getting the equity out of our house sure made for a good summer!
