A couple of possibilities. If it will sell readily, get an option to purchse it for about 3 or 4 months and then resell it retail during that time. Result: no loan, no loan costs. The buyer gets the new loan.

You sell it for more like 95%-100% of market value. If you are noticably below market value, it probably can be done, if your real estate market is reasonably active.
