Over the weekend, I picked up an issue of Time Magazine and there was an article that cought my eye entitled House-Swapping

The phenomena of home swapping, while nothing new, is gaining increased attention as frustrated home sellers look for more ways of finding buyers.

Today, there are a number of Web sites that specialize in “matchmaking” swaps between buyers and sellers with sites that showcase both the details of a sellers’ home and the details of the home they seek to buy.

For example one of the housing swapping Web sites,, had 90 listings in 2007. It has nearly 10,000 now.

I was wondering as my blog readers do you think this is an idea that would catch on in Boston?
