About Vezpuchi

Short-term home trades are a more efficient use of your time when you travel

Vezpuchi, based in Brooklyn, New York, was launched in 2018. We had a vision that there could be a better, more flexible, and more transparent way to do home swaps / exchanges… or whatever people called what existed before. What we came up with is a platform for “short-term home trade.” Vezpuchi is the world’s premier home trade community for leisure travel.

Every day people who live in New York, our hometown, travel all across the globe and leave their homes empty, all while they pay thousands of dollars to rent hotel rooms or apartments in the cities that they visit. Yet, while they are away, there are hundreds of thousands of people paying lots of money to rent homes and apartments in New York. And many of those people live in the places that New Yorkers are traveling! Critical opportunities are being missed to enrich the travel experience, and save a lot of money in the process. We are fixing this with our short-term home trade platform.

Short-term home trades provide a travel experience that money can’t buy

Vezpuchi is connecting travelers to accommodations in the destinations they want to visit. But time is the currency on this platform, not money. Through the Vezpuchi community, you can enhance your travel experiences for a fraction of the cost.

Not your grandparents vacation home exchange

Back in the day, your parents had to scour classified ads for a single exchange. You might have that eccentric aunt who loves home swapping. But your aunt and parents would have signed up to some website with a monthly subscription fee, which they only used once because it was filled with listings that were fake, or of date. Vezpuchi is not a subscription service. It is free to join.

Your parents also may be used a home-exchange service that did not offer schedule flexibility. They may have been stuck spending six weeks in Marseille, because that was all that was available within their timeframe, even though they may have preferred to explore different destinations around France and Spain. With Vezpuchi, you can make asynchronous trades. This means that the guest in your place does not need to be the one hosting you. That way, you can book accommodations in different cities and still reap the same benefits.

Why the short-term home trade platform is for you

Unlike some niche home swap platforms, we do not claim that there will be a castle in the English countryside available to you for two months in exchange for your fifth-floor studio walkup in the East Village. But there might be a Parisian penthouse, or a Barcelona flat, available for your one bed in Williamsburg. More to the point, we want to make it easy and cheaper for people in hot urban travel destinations see the world.
