Manhattan Beach, CA (April 27, 2009) – SabbaticalH…

Manhattan Beach, CA (April 27, 2009) is providing new resources on its popular website.

The site has added a newsletter to better address the needs of those planning sabbaticals. This current issue contains articles on Home Exchange insurance, how to effectively check references, and a profile of this issue’s Notable Member who runs a site for international professor exchanges. Additional articles geared toward academic networking are planned for future newsletters.

“It’s so important to address the needs of this growing community. Due to budget constraints, educators often need assistance to continue their work. We are working toward anticipating the issues faced by academics and providing them with a reliable resource tool to turn to when they are planning sabbaticals,” explained Nadege Conger, founder.

The site has implemented a feedback system not offered before now. The Feedback section allows both parties of a home exchange or rental to leave comments for the membership at large to read. This feature assists future renters and tenants alike with a quick referral system as they review potential home exchange situations.

“Our goal is to have Feedback for each successful exchange. The site grows by word of mouth, and that means more professors, writers and artists are hearing about us, seeing that the idea works, and going ahead with their own home exchanges or rentals through our site,” said Conger.

About is a specialized housing service connecting academics, writers and artists across the globe. The website facilitates home exchanges and rentals for these professionals, having published over 43,000 worldwide listings. It is the leading internet-based directory for home exchanges devoted to the academic community. Providing not only an extensive listing service for individuals listing and seeking available homes, it is also a source of valuable information for successful home exchanges, sabbaticals, and traveling.

The company was founded in 2000 by Nadege Conger, herself the spouse of a professor. Hundreds of academic websites link to and refer to it as a valuable resource when planning sabbaticals, research trips, or creative retreats. The company has been featured in The Chronicle of Higher Education (United States edition), The Guardian (United Kingdom), Marie Claire and Fine Living, among other publications. Located in Manhattan Beach, is run by a team of multinational individuals dedicated to the pursuit of education.
