Someone in Napa Valley is looking to swap his house for a home in East Dallas:
I have a 2/2 house in Napa, California wine country near the world famous Silverado Trail and need to live in Dallas for a year for my company. Is anyone interested in swapping houses? I'd like to live somewhere around White Rock Lake/the Botanical Garden.
Yesterday, Candy's Dirt called that the "most uneven housing swap ever to hit Dallas’ housing board on Craigslist." Not myself a frequent visitor to that portion of the online classifieds site, I decided to test their claim. Here's what's on offer:
— A townhome in Marietta, Georgia, for a house in Dallas
— A RARE house in Plano in exchange for a Naples, Florida home
— A 2-bedroom in Belfield, North Dakota, "where the oil boom is in full swing" for a home in the Denton area
— An 1,800-square-foot home in White Settlement (see picture above) for a house in the Arlington Heights area of Fort Worth
— Your pick of five Dallas-Fort Worth area homes for a place in Sedona, Arizona
— An AMAZING BRAND NEW MOBILE GROOMING BUSINESS for "property, lot, home, land, cabin, or vacation property." I imagine they'll also consider other interesting trades, such as screen legend Anthony Quinn's undershirt.
So what's the biggest mismatch?
