“Need to step back”

Written on: 10/02/2016

I'm an IT expert, and there original site was excellent, because it kept in mind that the majority of people are not web savvy. Since they changed the site, absolutely no-one likes it, and exchanges are few and far between. They need to go back to the old site, perhaps ask people who once used it, to give an opinion on the new site. They would then understand. Newer is not necessarily better… Read Full Review

“Absloute Shite!!!!!!”

Written on: 10/02/2016 by Parist201 (1 review written)

Truly worthless website. Time wasters who don't want to move. Far too many of these c*unts don't even respond to messages. Even the c*unts that contact you and ask if you are interested in their "home" more often than not you don't hear from them again. Don't get me started on the c*unts who say they will come around to view but never turn up. Just when you thought this website was as useless as can be, they change it all around and make it even worse than it already was. They seem to be more… Read Full Review

“social housing & mutual exchanging clearly don't mix”

Written on: 06/02/2016 by speedqueen101 (1 review written)

wow what can i say, what a bunch of ungrateful people, i live in a central london NW1 location a very sought after area where it's regarded a privilege to be offered a property around here, yet despite this, i've have an endless list of stories why homeswapper doesn't work, i have never dealt with one single genuine person in over 190 viewings, 1 tenant went through the standard 45 day inspection / approval / sign over process with me, clicked the 'i've swapped' tool on this site to avoid more… Read Full Review

“Don't waste your time”

Written on: 31/01/2016 by Risered (1 review written)

This site is just a total waste of time I wonder if Homeswapper ever look at these reviews Perhaps if they did they might put it back the way it was Also I think if you are not happy complain to your housing so they can stop paying for a worthless site perhaps if enough people complained they would take notice if they thought they would loose the money they get from housing trusts I would also like to know how many people has moved since the site was changed ?… Read Full Review

“Don't waste your time and especially Don't Pay!”

Written on: 04/01/2016 by melodious39 (1 review written)

Unfortunately, I had to pay for their so called service. When I checked my advert, all my photos were not showing, the tabs for Details and Map were not working. All I saw on my ad for a month was; "Your advert has been seen 2 times in the last 10 days!" They refused a refund of my money. DON'T PAY HOMESWAPPERS! It will be a waste!… Read Full Review

“A waste of time and frustrating site to use.”

Written on: 20/11/2015 by Simon_F1 (9 reviews written)

Homeswapper was good a few years back but ive just rejoined as im looking to move again and omg what a terrible site this is now. Nothing works, the photos look awful and have their aspect ratio messed with making washing machines look like the size of a car. the map never puts you on the same road as the house and you have to leave the site and go into google maps to see it. the street view is also useless for the same reason. Who ever runs homeswapper website needs to be sacked because they… Read Full Review

Nemo10's Response to Simon_F1's Review

Written on: 15/12/2015

I agree that homeswapper was a good easy site to use until they changed the format early this year. Now is it is a nightmare, I am still a member as my HA pays membership fee but I doubt if I will ever get a move through it. I have told them why I am unhappy with the new system but all I got was a memo asking me to be patient with them while they sorted things out. That was six months ago and they haven't changed anything. It is a waste of time and frustrating.

Unhappy0008888's Response to Simon_F1's Review

Written on: 30/12/2015

I totally agree I recently re joined as I received information from Homeswapper to say they had made changes to there site and it was now user friendly.
I also have to pay the charges myself as my housing provider will not pay for HomeSwappers services.
I am very unhappy with the homeswapper site and I will not pay again.
Nobody seems to reply and most people do not want to be contacted direct.
I think it is a complete waste of Time and money

“Time wasters”

Written on: 19/11/2015 by Gillybean64 (1 review written)

This site is now a total waste of time. People getting in touch with absolutely no intention of moving. For example 'do you want to view my place? Well I can't view yours until next year & don't want to move until 8 months time!!!!! Also full of lazy people who live in 'pig sty' type properties and want your place that is all newly decorated and clean. Also frequented by bare faced liars. I honestly cannot believe the amount of total lunatics that we have encountered in such a short time. I… Read Full Review

“Still no improvement ”

Written on: 19/10/2015 by Cornelius1948 (1 review written)

Well I thought I would try again after a few months but still rubbish. No answers to messages and not even sure if they get sent.. Too many people asking not be contacted directly which I find strange, Surely if you ewant to swap and the website is not helping you would improve your chances by letting people contact you directly via email or telephone. Anyway, I have given up now, Absolutyely the worst swap siote I ever tried to use. Plenty of others out there… Read Full Review

“homeswapper is awful”

Written on: 24/09/2015 by theresajane (1 review written)

This site is terrible. I have been on it a year ,I have had so many people ask for a viewing and not turn up and then there are the people who I swear just like looking at other people's house's. I have found several people to swap with and sorted paper work only for them to drop out several weeks later so so stressful don't bother most people on this site are time wasters… Read Full Review

“Homeswapper is dead”

Written on: 07/08/2015 by MosesGillespie350 (1 review written)

It used to be slow and buggy but at least there was some usable function there. Now people are leaving in droves and it is as dead as some of the smaller sites that pop up and then disapear. Such a shame as I organised a swap through home swapper before with ease but now it seems Facebook swap pages and gumtree are the only way… Read Full Review

If you read through all the terrible reviews about Homeswapper on this forum, you'll see that many people are no longer using Homeswapper because it's an awful website.

I'm surprised that you gave them 2 stars.

So what sites are good to look at for mutual exchanges that don't cost money to join? Do you know?

“An Appalling Mess.”

Written on: 25/07/2015 by dhMcCullough246 (1 review written)

Since Homeswapper have " improved " their website ( a joke I think ) I cannot find a swap within the whole of the UK. The site is very confusing and simply doesn't work. I have been sent emails weeks after an enquiry telling me how to use it. They ask me to click on certain tabs and all will be revealed. Sorry but the tab you want me to click on doesn't exist. All Homeswapper has done is waste my time and frustrate the hell out of me. I have written to my landlord asking if there has been any… Read Full Review
