It’s important that your home is neither undervalued nor overvalued in order to efficiently attract future guests. Furthermore, it is essential that you can finalize your exchanges with ease, and that you are always honest with your guests about the amenities in your home in order to receive positive ratings. As such, we use an algorithm to determine the GuestPoints value of the homes on the platform.
This calculation takes into account:
- the number (and size/type) of beds in your home - which is linked to the general size of the home and how many guests can stay in it
- the location of your home - based on the distance from the nearest tourist sites
- some of the amenities you have added to your listing - for example, having a pool or a garden will increase the GuestPoints value of your home
However, we still allow members to increase the GuestPoints value of their home up to 30 GPs more than the amount recommended by HomeExchange if they wish to do so. For more information on how to modify the GuestPoints value of your home, please consult this article.
