The new service will launch on the 26 June and is free to use.

Customers will need to register online at www.houseexchange.org.uk and the site will automatically match you with people that are interested in similar properties.

There’s even a free House Exchange app available on the Apple app and Google Play stores; so, you can search on the move too!

Currently over 100,000 people are looking to swap their properties around the UK, so your ideal home may only be a few clicks away.

The new service includes some great features, such as:

Add photos: You can have up to five photos of your property on your advert, this increases your chances of finding a swap, so make sure each room looks its best in the pictures.

Include a description: House Exchange has a fantastic tool that allows you to create a description by selecting options that apply to your home, or if you prefer, get creative and write your own. You can find both these options in the ‘Update my advert’ area.

Get in touch: Once you’re registered, start messaging people; arranging viewings is a great first step in your House Exchange journey.

If you’d like to find out more or need help to register on the new system, we’re holding the following drop in sessions:
