Home Exchange?

How familiar are you with Home Exchange? Is it really safe? Members of HomeExchange.com are taking, on average, over 110,000 individual vacations per year.

HomeExchange.com, established in 1992, has been featured in major media worldwide, including the Today Show and the New York Times. This is a fast growing market. At first it mostly started out with retired people but has fast spread to the baby boomers and to young families. If you think your house is to small to list, think again. There are many big city dwellers that just want to get away to somewhere quaint and away from all the hustle and bustle. List your house.

The Home Exchange Community is based on honesty, trust and commitment. You are advised to swap  emails and try to get a feel for each other. Try to get to know each other somewhat. You both will have to list pictures of your home. It’s best if you can point out any special features, best restaurantsspecial sites, comments about the neighbor hood, or any other amenities that you feel are important.

Meeting is purely optional, swapping vehicles is also optional, but should not be done until you check on what your insurance covers. It is advisable to lock up any valuables and financial documents. Electricity and gas is normally just considered an even swap also, but in reality, everything is decided between each of you before the swap and the two parties can include or exclude any thing they decide upon.

As a summary, Home Exchanges is growing vastly. It’s a very economical way to travel to places you never dreamed possible. What you would normally spend on a hotel or motel can be used for gas or flights or even just saved, depending on how far away the swap is. Many people are enjoying it so much that it has became the only way they vacation.

  1. I never thought of traveling like this! This seems very interesting and at the very least I will continue to look for more info.

    you have a very informative website. keep up the awesome work.

  2. I’ve heard of house sitting before, but never thought about using it as a way to travel on the cheap. Since I found out about it, I’m starting to see a lot of people who use this as a budget way to travel – what a great idea! Thanks for the great resource, it’s finding these kind of opportunities that can be hard, but this website makes it easy!!

  3. If you really followed it through and did more research on it, I would almost bet you would change your mind. Just think of all the places you could visit that you can’t now, because it would just cost to much. Also, you talk and talk to each other, use webcams, skype, whatever it takes till you feel totally comfortable. And if worse comes to worse, you can call it off at any time. Over 10,000 people are doing it now and return vacation after vacation, because they love all the benefits and savings they have now. Also you can even bring your children. What an education for them!

  4. Quite honestly from everything I have saw and read, it is very safe. Did you watch the video on The Today Show I linked to and read the article I linked to also. Everyone that has done it, seems to be doing it over and over and loving it.

  5. That sounds like an amazing way to travel! Do you know if it’s safe? I’d feel a bit uncomfortable having a stranger in my home considering how easily things could get stolen. :/ If not for the paranoia I’d jump straight into it as I love exploring new places!

  6. Wow I have never heard of this site before.

    Sounds like a pretty good idea, just raises the obvious red flags of switching homes, but I guess you being in their home does level the playing field a bit.

    Probably not something I’d try, but a unique idea, good to see some people still have enough trust to partake in this site.


  7. Fab information! I had never considered doing a home exchange before, and think this is a genius idea.

    Great site – I will be back to read more x

  8. Home exchange is a great way of taking a vacation on a budget and travel to placing most could only imagine. This post will save your users money and time.
