Finding a house while on sabbatical can be tedious at best.  I had a chance to sit down and talk with Nina Grigoreas, of academichomes.com, about her company's services...

WE:  Please tell us a little bit about your organization, academichomes.com...

NG:  AcademicHomes.com provides the international academic community an opportunity to exchange, rent, or buy & sell homes with other faculty,  administrators, and post-docs.

We have homes/apartments, etc., posted that are located in all over
the world. In fact, six out of the seven continents are represented (all
except Antarctica!)...

Looking for a Home: You can search our database for available apartments
& homes, home exchanges, and house sitting opportunities.

Home Owner: We will help you to sell, rent, or exchange your home, or
find a house sitter.

We have an Inaugural Special!

Limited Time Offer: Post your home for rent or exchange during your next
short-term or sabbatical visit for free! (Valid only for persons in
Academia)

**Prices vary greatly and are up to the discretion of the
homeowner/landlord.**

WE:  Are kids welcome, at some of the homes?:

NG:  Children are certainly welcome at some of the homes, although this is
certainly up to the discretion of the individual homeowner/landlord.

 

WE:  Is there anything else you'd like to share with us?:

NG: Here is our pricing for our ads:

*There is no charge for posting a "Home Wanted" listing.*


Pricing for Posting a Home

For individuals associated with academic institutions, there is no
charge for posting your home for rent, sitting, exchange, or sale.

If you are NOT affiliated with an academic institution, the charge for
posting a home depends on the length of time the ad is posted.

Exchange, or Sitting
