Live like a local anywhere in the world by swapping homes and saving
money at the same time
MONTREAL, May 27, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - According to a poll by CIBC, nearly one-third of Canadian retirees are worried that they'll run out
of money over the long term, even though they are satisfied with the
current quality of their retirement. According to the Leger Marketing
Survey, 69 per cent of retired Canadians believe the quality of their
retirement is what they had hoped for. However, 28 per cent are afraid
of running out of money over the longer term.
HomeExchange.com is a simple concept - "you stay in my house while I stay in yours". It
was launched in 1992 by Ed Kushins, a former marketing executive, who
foresaw an opportunity for like-minded people to offer their homes to
one another and provide a global exploration of a wide range of
interests. It soon appeared that a large number of retired people were
using HomeExchange.com to save money, discover the world, live like a local, and to experience
other ways of life.
In Canada, HomeExchange already has more than 2800 members of which 418 are retired people.
This is almost 15% of its members. These people use HomeExchange principally to enjoy life as «snowbirds» or as «Europe fans». By saving
on hotel room fees, they can cut their travel bill and have more money
to see the sights at their destination.
A condo in Paris or Manhattan, a house in Tuscany or Greece, a hacienda
in Mexico... HomeExchange is the smartest way to keep a good quality of retirement by swapping
homes, saving money and living like a local anywhere all over the
