Of course, if you’re renting an apartment we suggest you contact the owner for whatever permission is necessary.
The fact is, “home” and “house” should not be used interchangeably, as “house” barely scratches the surface of the variety of homes offered by our Members. While condos, apartments, beach houses, cabins, villas and chateaux add to the picture, Members have also been known to hit the open road in an exchange partner’s RV, and you'll also find quite a few boats and houseboats offered. Exchangers often include their cars as well.
A small apartment vs a family house vs a mountain cottage—every property is suitable for an exchange!
