Introducing Response Rate
The HomeExchange experience has gotten even better! You may have seen it already. You might have already been using it to help you search. We are proud to have a feature designed to reward your efforts in responding to exchange inquiries.
As an experienced HomeExchanger, you know how exciting it is when you get a response to your exchange inquiry. Even if that response is a simple “sorry, not at this time,” it is nice to know that someone has given your request serious consideration.
Adding Response Rate to Member Profiles builds upon the many benefits you already have at your fingertips.
When searching for your next dream exchange, you will be able to easily Search [screenshot] using Response Rate.
Member Listings with high Response Rate can appear first in the results.
If your Response Rate is not perfect, don’t worry, we’re thinking of you too. We know that it can be a challenge to stay on top of all the inquiries you get. To make it easier, we’ve included notifications to let you know when your rate is slipping. When you log-in, you’ll see a notice letting you know your Rate has dropped. Simply click through your Inbox and let the potential Exchanges know if you are or are not able to meet their request. As you do, your rate will rise. Easy!
We look forward to your feedback and suggestions as we continue to make your HomeExchange experience even better. Have ideas? Feedback? Please let us know!
