If you’d like to exchanges homes, all you have to do is be brave and list your home on one of several “swapping” Web sites. More and more people are exchanging their homes with strangers around the country — and world. House swapping appeals to retired folks who have flexible schedules as well as younger people who’d like to get away for a long weekend.

Here’s how it works: You put your home or your vacation home on a Web site and choose the place you’d like to visit. Then, you post lots of inquires as to the week or month you’d like to swap. While most people try to match up vacation dates, you can work out other arrangements. You could request a week in Paris and set aside a different week for the other family to use your Miami vacation home.

No, I wouldn't. I'd like to stay in a hotel
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/3/07 - 11:14:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, as long as whomever got my house cleaned it.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/3/07 - 10:34:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I wouldn't want strangers staying in my house.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/3/07 - 10:36:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
^ That's what I was thinking.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 1/4/07 - 2:00:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I wouldn't want people messing up my house.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 1/4/07 - 2:03:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
It might be interesting. I just wouldn't want people messing with my things, since I tend to be really weird about people touching/misplacing/losing my stuff, but if I could get around that it wouldn't be too bad.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/12/07 - 6:28:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
sounds like a cool idea
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/12/07 - 6:59:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
If it was a friend, sure. But strangers could easily rob you blind.
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 4/22/07 - 2:16:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
they'd be so pwned when they saw the state of my flat.
15 yrs ago - Saturday 5/19/07 - 9:27:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, cuz I don't have much money anyways.lol
15 yrs ago - Saturday 5/19/07 - 9:28:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
No.
Dunno why.
14 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 5/25/07 - 8:21:14 AM EST (GMT-5)
I would think 'no'. I don't know what's IN the house, and I wouldn't know if they would completely trash mine.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 7/17/07 - 3:28:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
Like in the movie 'The Holiday'! It sounds fun, buy I'd be concerned about my stuff being used or stolen.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 7/17/07 - 3:40:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd have to hide all the cinema for adult viewing, but maybe they'd get the cat pee smell out of the carpet. It sounds like fun.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 7/17/07 - 1:23:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would never let anyone stay in my house.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 8/14/07 - 7:51:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think I'd be too scared they would steal from my house.
