International Vacation Home Exchange Puts a New Spin on the Age Old Home Swap

Share Article

International Vacation Home Exchange- IVHE introduces a versatile credit system that changes the way home exchange is done. No longer must home exchangers coordinate schedules and destinations to take advantage of the cost savings of a home swap.

International Vacation Home Exchange's non-reciprocal home trading gives members the freedom to choose a location without the ties of a direct house swap. Susie Magnus, founder of explains, “You can use another member's home even if they choose not to use your home, allowing for complete flexibility of dates and versatility of location.”

IVHE is based on a credit system that allows for non-simultaneous home exchanges to any location that captures a member’s interest. Each property is assigned a credit value based on its potential weekly rental income. A luxury apartment in New York City, for example, may be given a higher credit value than a country cottage in France. Home owners earn credits each time another member stays at their property. The earned credits are then applied as payment when arranging an exchange with another member. Properties do not have to exchange on a like-for-like basis providing greater and more interesting choices for members. With the addition of Dubai, Bequia, Phuket, and Cabo San Lucus, International Vacation Home Exchange now provides its members year-round access to luxury vacation homes on 6 continents and in 56 countries.

International Vacation Home Exchange provides a solution to the number one complaint of traditional house swaps: timing your holiday around someone else’s schedule. Julie, a member of IVHE says "getting credit for having a family stay in our vacation home and then using that to go wherever we want is the most innovative improvement on home exchanging since it was invented". specializes in the premium sector of the vacation and second property market, and provides members access to luxury staffed villas, yachts, ski lodges, city condos, boutique hotels and even safari game lodges.
