After doing more than 20 exchanges myself, connecting with countless exchangers and even speaking at length with people who own home exchange websites, I’ve never heard of a problem: theft, damage/vandalism or even misrepresentation of a home.
Is crossing the street safe? Yes, when you do it the right way –and that’s simple to do.
The first key is knowing what precautions you can take, to feel confident, comfortable and safe with home exchanging. The second is understanding the nature of home exchanging.
Ultimately, the decision to home exchange is entirely at your discretion every time you assess an offer.
