Can i give my house to my sister without doing a purchase/sale transaction?


I own a 2nd house (investment property in california) that i wana sell to my sister. Instead of doing a sale/purchase can we just change the title to her name and then refinance the house with her being the borrower instead. Because if i sell it to her the goverment will tax me 25% since its an investment property.
