Bloglines not updating 2016
When I decided to try out house swapping I was overwhelmed by the number of websites serving people interested in home exchange.
I spent a few weeks going through them at random, and searching in vain for objective reviews or at least some overview information comparing the sites.
Most home exchange networks cost money, and it takes some work to build a decent profile and go through listings, so ideally you want to only join one or two.
This means it’s important to pick the site or sites that will best meet your house swapping needs.
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is the acronym used to describe the de facto standard for the syndication of Web content.
The most widespread usage of RSS is in distributing news headlines on the internet.

Do you have specific destinations that you want to visit?If you only want to travel within Australia, join a site devoted to that rather than one that lists homes all around the world.Do you have specific needs or a group of people with whom you want to swap?Other features offered by some networks that might be important to you include: house swapping insurance and/or security deposit, contract templates, and variations on timing and method of house swapping (see below). And not just the overall number of listings on a website, but also the number of listings in places you want to travel.
Where possible, in my reviews I’ve provided a breakdown of listings by continent, or for some sample countries.
