Home Exchange - It’s Easy in 2 parts!

  Home Exchange Part 2

* Kitchen: It is not necessary to clear out all cupboards, indeed it is very useful for your guests if you leave some basics (eg flour, oil, dried herbs) in the kitchen for your home exchange guest to use. Remove or simply leave a note about items that you do not wish to be used. It is nice for your home swap guests to have a bit of space in a cupboard and fridge for their own food supplies.

* Make your home exchange guests feel at home: clearing a small space in the wardrobe and a drawer or two will make your guests stay much more comfortable and make your property feel like home.

* Local knowledge: a couple of recommendations for your favourite restaurants will get your home swap guest's vacation off to a flying start. Also useful are ideas for days out close to home, and useful contacts such as local pharmacy, doctors and plumber.

* Clean, clean, clean: the cleaner your property, the happier your guests will be! If you do not use a regular housekeeper or cleaner, remove as much clutter as possible and consider using a cleaning agency to give your property a thorough spring-clean. Guests should always leave the property in the same condition in which they found it even if there is a housekeeper coming in after them, leaving the property in nice tidy condition is expected.

* Vehicle insurance: if you are considering swapping cars, boats, ski-doo's etc check with your insurance company that they will be covered, some countries are fine for occasional other drivers to use vehicles, others are less so.

Home exchanging is a great way to save lots of money and experiencing different cultures and stepping into someone else's world!. For more information on exchanges please visit to see a stunning selection of properties available for home exchange.
