How Long Does it Take to Find an Exchange Partner?

Now that you have your Listing in shape, it’s time to just sit back and count those incoming messages, right? 

While this may work, the best way to find your perfect match quickly is to get out there and search. It’s one of the most exciting parts of home exchange -- especially when you take advantage of the following tips: 
 

1. Reverse Search

Reverse Search is an easy-to-use shortcut that reduces your search time by finding only Members who want to visit your city, state or country. For more information, see What is Reverse Search and How Do I Use it?



The Revers Search helps you find Members who are interested in your area
 

2. Cast a Wide Net

Many Members compete for city center homes. Expand your search outwards to increase your selection and really live like a local. Historic Windsor is 40 minutes from central London, and rural Vaux-le-Pénil is just a 30-minute train ride from Paris.
 

3. Follow Up

Just because you don’t hear back for several days doesn’t mean they’re not interested. Send another message to let them know you are, ending with a question like, “Are you available to travel during June, or would another time work better?”
