GETTING STARTED
Search the home listing database in three ways. Click here to view and search all options.
1. Basic Search will get you to a destination quickly. If you know the listing # you can enter it here as well.
2. Advance Search will narrow down more your choice to include travel dates, number of bedrooms, activities, home amenities and more.
3. Browse all the listings by country at your own pace.

Create a listing - A home listing is a benefit of membership to Digsville.   Once that is done go to your personal page and follow the link to Create Listing. Each listing is comprised of four parts:
1. About your home 
2. About your neighborhood
3. Member Profile
4. Trip Wish

The more details you provide, the more robust your listing will be and the more offers you'll likely receive. Nothing tells a story like photograghs. You may post as many photos as you like.

Contact a listingIt's FREE!  On the top of each home listing page you'll find a link that says Contact this Listing - this link will provide you with a quick and easy initial (anonymous) contact note to open a dialogue with another member of Digsville. This note will be delivered directly to that person at the email address they provided to us. It is very important to keep your e-mail address updated with us at all time so the home listings (if you have one) remain current. Your contacts will be stored and tracked by date of reply for your convenience on your personalize page. Search and contact the listings now. Click here.

MY PERSONAL PAGE
This is your dashboard to all the terrific features Digsville has to offer. Personalized and customized by you to save your Favorites, track your Contacts, create and edit your Home Listing and Profile, and add to your TripWish at any time! Get started now.

Saved Searches & Agents
We have discovered that many people do that same type of search over and over when searching the home listings. In our effort to simplify this, you can now save your searches and have the Digsville Search Agent(tm) scan the listing directory each evening and e-mail you any new matches that are found.

Saved Searches and Agents can be found on your personal page (you must be logged in) where you can easily tell us if you want your Agent to run (yes/no) on a particular search.

Favorites and Contacts 
See a listing for a home you would love to visit? Don't let it slip you by, save it to your Favorites to contact at your convenience, it's FREE to save your favorites, all we need is your email address and your choice of password. Once you start making contact, your mailbox will track the dates you sent your initial note and received a reply! Get started now.

Mailbox
 
For many of you it's a simple task to open your email inbox and receive and reply to home exchange offers from other Digsville members. For others, spam filters, which are a much needed tool for all ISPs (Internet Service Providers) have become way too aggressive and you may have missed some great offers or your replies may not be getting where they need to go (again missed swapping opportunities).

We're thrilled to announce a new communication tool that will allow you to contact other Digsville members directly through the Digsville website in your very own mailbox.

You will now have a record of every contact you make, the replies, and any offers you receive!

Simply log in and you will see the link to your Mailbox just above your 'Favorites'. Of course you may continue to reply to all offers through your own email inbox if that suits you better. The choice is yours.

Member Profile 
The more reference points a potential swap partner has about another, the more the comfort level rises when swapping homes. We are proud of our unique and somewhat quirky questions. We believe the more reference points to have about another member the higher the comfort level in planning your next swap. Member Profile is edited from your personal page.

U-Rate
U-Rate is Digsville's proprietary rating/reference system providing publically-visable feedback from members who have swapped with a particular listing. U-Rate is objective commentary that is provided on the home listings so you don't have to ask for it! This extra level of information contributes to the success of your vacations.

To rate a listing that you have recently visited for home exchange, hospitality or vacation rental simply click on the U-Rate link at the top of the listing. You'll have the opportunity to answer and rate each of the three questions about your visit (and condition of your own home upon your return) on a scale of 1 to 5.  You can also add comments and a Letter of Reference it you like.

Write an article
If you have had an exchange in the past year, please tell us about it. Send your story in an email or attach any type of document and we'll edit/post where we find it most appropriate.  Send directly to the editor
