A. REVERSE SEARCH – Who seeks your location ?
Here are the steps you should follow to search for listings that seek Canada / yourprovince / yourcity : https://homelink.org/en/

where-want-to-go_a
where-want-to-go_b
or SELECT a country from the list where-want-to-go_c

destin-canada

france-canada ok

search-ca-total
exclude exclude-searchresult

france-map list-map-view
Voila! Example result :

fr-result-seek-ca-fr

B. MESSAGE RESPONSE RATE
Response rate 100% is ideal, right? If yours is something like this Response rate 75% you should check all your MESSAGES carefully, those in your CONVERSATION and those in your ARCHIVES. Messages with blue backgrounds have not yet been read or answered.MESSAGE-unanswered-595
Even if the message/offer is stale-dated, you can still open/read it or send a quick apology and explain that you’re simply ‘cleaning house’. Then wait about 24 hours for the system to re-calculate. If you need our assistance, just CONTACT US.

C. YOUR NUMBER OF EXCHANGES
Have you noticed that our website has posted some data that disagrees with your own records, for example, the year you first registered as a member … or your number of exchanges? If you had used the EXCHANGE AGREEMENT FORM provided, your number would have been automatically tabulated, otherwise we’ll have to do it manually.
