Do you have a 2nd home or holiday home?
The key to successful exchanging is flexibility - either over your dates or destinations, or preferably a bit of both. Having a second home or holiday home increases your flexibility enormously as it allows you to do a non-simultaneous exchange (NSX).
With a NSX you visit your exchange partner's home at a time suitable for you and they visit your second home at a different time. So you might visit Australia in their summer and your Australian exchange partner could visit the UK in our summer. Offering your second home for exchange enables you to get value from it when it might otherwise by standing empty. Don't forget, that home exchanges within the UK are always popular, so you could swap a week in your holiday home for half term break in London or the Highlands of Scotland.
Many members with a second home also list their main home, so doubling their chances of finding an ideal exchange. You might also consider offering your exchange partners a two centre holiday by allowing them to use both of your homes. If you wish to list two homes with HomeLink, there is no additional charge (view full prices) - just click the 'Add a Listing' button once you are a member.
Please note that you should join HomeLink in the country where you live, even if your second home is in another country.
