Heraclitus famously said that “The only constant is change.” As travelers, we can all describe the many ways this sentiment resonates with us. And with a new year of change upon us, complete with resolutions and new travel plans, why not celebrate the new by exploring the New Listings Collection?

Every day, brand new HomeExchange members add their homes to the 65,000+ listings across more than 150 countries. These new homes can be easily found in the New Listings Collection, which is automatically updated to include all listings less than 30 days old. That number regularly exceeds 2,000 fresh listings from all over the world!

Here’s why you should check them out:

You Get First Dibs

Everyone likes to be first. With the New Listings Collection, you might be among the first to consider homes newly available for exchange. If you find the perfect place – that luxury beachfront home in Australia or ski-in chalet in Colorado – your inquiry might be the first received by the new member, which means you become a front-runner in getting your first choice of dates.


They’re Easy to Find

At HomeExchange we try to make it as easy as possible for you to travel anywhere and stay for free. That’s why we’ve assembled a series a collections that unify homes around specific themes. They bypass the need for special filtered searches. So to find new listings, simply click on the New Listings Collection. Within this collection, you can still search for a particular location, sort by the number of bedrooms, or show the listings interested in exchanging with someone in your location, just like you can with general search.


You Have a High Likelihood of Success

New members are eager for inquiries and tend to respond quickly. They’ve just taken the leap to join our community and cannot wait to see who is interested in their place. During their first month, they will probably regularly check their inbox for inquiries and are much more likely to be flexible with dates so that they can experience the benefits of home exchange.


You’re Contributing to the Community

We were all new once. If you have a few exchanges under your belt, give back to the community by sharing your wisdom. New members can be nervous about getting started, so offering tips, suggestions and reassurance can help them address their concerns and get started. Guide them through the HomeExchange process and advise what questions they should be asking when they send an inquiry. It’s one of the ways that our community supports itself!


They’re Only on the List for a Limited Time

The New Listings Collection is automatically updated to only include listings less than 30 days old. Every day there are newcomers, just as there are members who graduate from it. There’s only a limited time to find and reach out to these members before they are eased into the general pool, so act quickly to connect with them.


The List Is Constantly Changing

As mentioned above, the New Listings Collection is constantly changing. Didn’t find what you were looking for today? Check back tomorrow. Chances are that there will be tens, if not hundreds, of new homes that may be exactly what you want.

  1. Hi
    I have made several great exchanges with my family during that last 5-6 years. Now you have opened up for exchanges with ballones. How is this getting along – anyone who would like to share their experiences with that?
    Best regards Helle Nyrup, Denmark
