Pricing: Listing Fees

How much does it cost to post a listing?

There is a nominal listing fee to post a Home Offered or Tenant Listing. Please see the table below for more detailed information. Listings remain active for up to 14 months from the date submitted, can be updated at any time, and are renewable.

A Home Offered listing can be a property for rent, exchange, house sitting or sharing. Tenant Listings may also be posted to request a home to rent or sit. Searching for listings and replying to offers is always free.

Our philosophy is to keep listing fees to a minimum. There are no hidden costs, such as commission or booking fees. Therefore, if you make a match using our site (by finding a home or tenant), we kindly ask that you give back to help us continue to grow and improve.

How do I pay for my listing?

Once your listing is submitted, you will be prompted to choose between paying by credit card (via PayPal) or by check. Listings are posted immediately. Most currencies are accepted, but please note that international rates may vary.

What if I would like to list more than one property?

Each property will have its own listing number and information. Listing and renewal fees apply to each property.

If you are an agent or broker, or have a property with multiple units, please contact us. Higher rates apply to commercial listings.

Who qualifies as an academic?

We qualify an academic as someone whose email is associated with a university, college, university-affiliated hospital, museum, research or other scholarly institution. A verification email will be sent to the email address to authorize academic status. Scholars who do not belong to an academic organization (retired educators, for example) may sign up as Independent Scholars, or contact us to inquire about qualifying for academic listing fees.

Sabbatical Homes' academic categories:

  1. Academic Faculty or Staff (Universities, Research Institutes, and Museums)
  2. Graduate or Post-Graduate Student – Must have a current university, research institute, museum or hospital email address
  3. School Teacher (Primary and Secondary) – Must have a current school email address
  4. Independent Scholar (working outside traditional academia) & Retired Academics – Please contact us.

Can I use a different currency?

Yes, most currencies are accepted, but please note that international rates may vary.

I’m in a coffee shop on a shared network; can I pay my Setup Fee later when I’m in a place with secure internet connection? And if I pay later, when will my listing be active?

Your listing will be active as soon as you post it, allowing you a grace period to make your payment.

Can I use my credit card to pay for my listing without creating a PayPal account?

Yes, login to your SabbaticalHomes.com account and click on My Payments, then click the Pay Now button until you get to the PayPal Choose a way to pay screen. At the bottom of this screen, you can choose to Pay with your debit or credit card as a PayPal guest by clicking Don’t have a PayPal account?. This will eliminate the need to register for a PayPal account while allowing you to use your credit or debit card.

I submitted a credit card payment online when I posted my listing, but it hasn’t registered yet. When will the charge submit?

Don’t worry, your listing(s) will remain active as we update your payment. Although rare, it’s possible to experience a lag in updating payment information. If over 24 hours have passed and the information still hasn’t been updated, please contact us.

My PayPal payment isn’t working. Is there an alternative way I can use my credit card to pay?

To make a payment with PayPal, login to your SabbaticalHomes.com account and click on My Payments, then click the Pay Now button until you get to the PayPal Choose a way to pay screen. There, you should be able to finalize your payment through PayPal using your credit or debit card. If this doesn’t work and the problem persists you can make a direct payment via PayPal to the following email: CustomerService(at)sabbaticalhomes.com. Please enter your listing number in the notes section of your PayPal payment.
