Company Profile

Founded in 1995, IHEN.COM – The International Home Exchange Network was the first web site devoted to the listing of home exchanges and private rentals. In our tenancy on the web, the IHEN has enjoyed unparalleled success and become a popular destination for “surfers” worldwide. Averaging 350,000 file requests per month from over seventy countries, The International Home Exchange Network has received extensive critical acclaim for its design and ease of use, including being selected by New Riders in its “World Wide Web Top 1000″ and rated by Pointcom among the Top 5% of all Web Siteson the Internet.
 
When we established IHEN, our goal was to couple the proven concept of home exchanging with state of the art computer technology. Starting with the first electronic bulletin board devoted to home exchanges, Florida based IHEN, FL debuted in 1993 to provide callers with immediate access to current, extensive, and readable profiles of available homes. With the advent of the Web in 1995, we moved our operations to the Internet to further serve our user’s needs.
 
IHEN.COM believes that the most important accolades are those that we receive from our members.

From San Francisco, California….

“You bet your life I want to renew. IHEN is my favorite spot on the web. We went to Spring training in Phonix to see the Giants in March andnow we have nother IHEN trip planned for July in Santa Fe NM to catch some Opera”
From Escondido, California…
“It worked! (Of course, it did, but we are experienced exchangers and expected it to work.) We exchanged our home in San Diego with a young couple in Tahoe who were looking for warmth to train for the Boston Marathan — while we were seeking great skiing. A win-win situation and it worked perfectly. You are doing a great job!”
From British Columbia, Canada….
“Just to let you know that we have rented our apartment for 12 weeks as a result of listing with IHEN…Well, we are off on our WWW planned vacation in Southern California on Monday. So much has been arranged through the web, that I feel as if we could stay here and have a “virtual” vacation. You might like to remove our entry for our house in Oxford from your listings. However, I would like to reinstate it again early next year, possibly with a request for another part of the US for an exchange (so many people from other parts of the U.S. wanted our house)!”
 
From Orlando, Florida…..
“Just to let you know of the phenomenal success we have had with our listing with IHEN. To date, we have received numerous e-mail inquiries from places such as Israel, Brussells, and Malaysia!!! The response has been so overwhelming, we are having trouble deciding on where to go – but are looking forward to at least two exchanges next year!”
