Why not consider a home swap?
Is your home too big? Or are you looking for a larger home? Would you like to move to a different area?
Did you know that Housing Executive tenants can now use a free online service to look for suitable homes that are available for exchange? We already have dozens of tenants signed up.
HomeSwapper is the UK’s largest and most successful home swap service. It’s now free to all Housing Executive tenants and most Northern Ireland housing association tenants and is an easy way to find the right new home.  
Housing Executive and housing association tenants can swap homes with another tenant and finding a mutual exchange through HomeSwapper means you won’t have to go on a waiting list.
HomeSwapper has the UK’s largest database of people looking to swap homes, with over 246,000 users across the UK. In the past 12 months 29,000 households have swapped homes using the website.
HomeSwapper uses the details you supply to automatically match you to other tenants who may have a home that you'd like and who would also be interested in your property.  When a suitable match is found you will be alerted by SMS text or email. You can then log onto HomeSwapper, look at the home you have been matched with and if you like the look of it you can arrange to visit it.
You can use HomeSwapper straight away by logging on to and registering to use the service.
