Consider Swap Cat for House in Fl.

Hi, I own a Kennex 445, (all paid for) have lived aboard 11 years now, and have sailed tens of thousands of NM both single handed and with crew. I figure the fair market value at $250k and would consider a permanent swap for either one house of equal value or two houses of total equal value, located on the Florida Treasure Coast in or near Stuart, Fl. or Port Saint Lucie, Fl.

Re: Consider Swap Cat for House in Fl.

I am not sure how much you know about the real estate market in Florida but I just bought a foreclosed house in Ft. Myers, two bed room 1 1/2 bath on a nice lot three blocks from the water for $US11,000. I am not saying I want to trade since I view this house as rental property.

But unless you have a good idea just what the real estate market is you could wind up with a house worth much less than your boat.

Re: Consider Swap Cat for House in Fl.

Thanks for your response, I am aware of what your saying. However, these days, real estate is now being looked at as other personal property, it can deprecate too. Just as my Cat at one time was valued at more than double that of now (yet is better equipped) there may be someone out there with a house or two (paid for) that now is worth much less on the market than they paid new. Most people when buying a boat have a survey to determine it's current worth, so too, a house should be assessed for it's current worth.
