ots of people would love a vacation but don't even know how Utah!
Home Exchange can help them afford
it. So here's an open letter from us to you . . .
We first learned about vacation home exchange about 1992, during the six years
our family was living in Europe. Big slick catalogs showed the homes available
for exchange. I thought it was a really great idea, but I was cautious about
trading homes with just anybody. How could I find people to trade with who
had values similar to mine?
I always thought there must be members of the Church all over the world
who would love to come to Utah for a vacation. They could come and go to
Temple Square, Conference, family reunions, or do genealogy. They could
come for the mountains to ski and hike, or the red rock desert and bike
and raft or go four-wheeling.
Besides, all the people in Utah want to go somewhere else for their vacation.
So, let's trade houses! We'll all save money and have a great time!
I decided to open a home exchange business that trades in and out of Utah. Since
the Internet has made expensive catalogs a thing of the past, it's finally feasible.
Our website is www.uthomex.com where you can list your
home and find a like-minded family to trade with.
There are several ways to trade.
Two families might decide to swap homes for two weeks in August. That's the
most common exchange. Or, if schedules don't line up to vacation simultaneously,
people can just trade visits. This is called a Hospitality Exchange. You might
go see them in April, and then have them visit you in September. You are at
home when they come visit you.
Additionally, lots of people in Utah would enjoy hosting others during
LDS Conference week. Then they might visit the other family later.
There's a place on the registration form to indicate what kind of an exchange
you want to make and when you want to go.
If you think this is something which might be for you, fill out and submit
the registration form right here on-line, and let's
get started. It should only take about ten minutes. You can also download
and print a paper copy and mail it in. The address is on the form.
If you're like me, you always have a million questions before you decide.
Check out our Frequently Asked Questions page. I
think the more you know, the better you'll like the idea.
How much does it cost? Eventually, this will develop into a profitable
business, but for now, it's not even paying its' expenses. This is
because we believe in the idea so much we're actually listing houses for FREE.
That makes it a really good deal for you! It doesn't even cost you the
normal listing fee!
We're offering a FREE one-year listing in
order to develop the database. As our group gets larger, the cost will
have to go up to $56 US per year. Register now, while it's still free!
If you want more information about
home exchange, just do a quick search on the Internet. Type into Google or other
search engine "vacation home exchange" and look at how many companies
it shows. Just remember, ours is unique because
our market niche is mostly members trading with each other, in and out of Utah!
Please fill out the Registration Form either on-line
or on paper and send it in.
If you've already checked the Frequently
Asked Questions page, and you still have questions, I can be contacted by
e-mail on the Contact Us page.
You can even download
a copy of this letter and the registration form,
if you'd like to share it with a friend. Pass it around . . . you're the
best advertising there is!
Meanwhile, I hope your life is rich and happy!
First: You register your own home by
completing the on-line Registration Form and clicking
"Submit." (If you prefer, you may print it and mail us the paper copy.)
You will have an opportunity to include
digital photos of your home. You can do that when you register, or you can add
We review every listing for appropriate content. In a few hours,
you will see your home listed on this website.
You will get an e-mail giving your Uthomex ID number (which acts as your username)
and your password. You should write these down, because you will
need them later.
When you are ready to plan your vacation, you choose a few homes from our listings
with whom you might like to swap.
At the bottom of each
of those listings, there is a button saying “Contact the Owner.”
You simply click on that button. You will be asked to login with your username
and password. If you are already a Uthomex member, the owner’s contact
information will appear to you.
Contact information does not appear until you log in!
Now you write those people a nice e-mail telling about yourselves and your home,
and that you are interested in exchanging homes with them. For an idea
of what to say, check out our Suggested
After several e-mails and phone calls, you will finalize your home exchange!
Unregistered folks will be directed to register before they can log in.
Contact information will only appear to those registered members who log in
with their own Uthomex ID number and password. This protects your
information from Joe-Bag-of-Doughnuts off the street!
Utah! Home Exchange DOES NOT ARRANGE THE
EXCHANGE FOR YOU! You will do this yourself after you obtain
contact information for your potential exchange partners. This better
enables both parties to judge if these are the right people and the house
for each other.
Our listings are always changing, watch for updates!
