Preparing for the exchange
Some preparation has to be done when you're preparing for your first exchange such as what you'll do about the keys, how you'll share information about your home, etc., but these things will be like second nature to you once you get the hang of it. In the meantime, we've prepared a little summary about some things you wouldn't want to forget as you preare for the exchange.

Organizing consecutive exchanges
