Your property is much safer occupied than standing empty. We also take references from all our home exchange members before they can stay in another member's house.
How many exchanges / trades would I get in a year?
This is very difficult to predict. Location, activities, size, style: all sorts of factors play a part, but there are all sorts of members (singles, families, skiers, golfers, etc.) and those who just want to chill out, so location desires are just as varied.
Does my property qualify for IVHE Home Exchanges?
Location and quality are our most important criteria and we are happy to accept properties in any area that people will wish to travel to. The size of your property is not important as long as it is equipped and maintained to a high standard.
Do you do direct home exchanges?
Yes, IVHE now prides itself on being able to offer both non-simultaneous house exchanges AND direct home swaps.
