The IVHE team always wants to hear from you, just post feedback on your latest trade to receive a free credit!
The easiest way make a house swap happen, especially last minute, is by being flexible with locations and dates. Being open minded gives you a wealth of choices and you could end up somewhere exciting that you had never thought about. Step into someone else’s lifestyle and let the world surprise you.
Start with the idea of a small party or immediate family and then, if you secure a bigger property, invite others to join you. Big groups can get complicated because it limits possibilities and it can be difficult to find dates and locations that work for everyone.
To take advantage of last minute swaps for summer, timing is important. If you find something available move fast to get your travel plans in place as you can't expect a host to have you pencilled in for long.
Take the time to create an accurate and telling description of your house and community. Sell your location by sharing information on interesting things to do and see in your area that only the locals are aware of.
Provide a notebook with operating instructions for the various appliances, electronics, and hardware around your home.
Inform your Insurance Agent
Talk to your insurance agent about your exchange plans. Most insurance companies are happy to know that a house won’t be left empty and guests will generally be covered under your policy, but it is always good to check.
