From Qld, WA and London.
Just letting you know the response we are having from people looking for reliable housesitters.
Since we placed our profile with you we've regularly had 1 or 2 emails or calls a day from people all over the country and also overseas offering to let us housesit for them. You have a great site that works.
Currently fully booked up for the foreseeable future.....
Cheers Angela & Gary
Successful carers in London, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Perth

Hint - help your ad stand out from all the others.
Include a little about yourself & why owners should select you.
Any sitting experience or skills with pets or gardens will help owners to decide if you meet their needs when they pre-screen from the lists of registered sitters.

For holiday or work, Sydney is a beautiful location with lots to see and do.

House Sitting

Owners - Why use a housesitter?
Do you like putting your pets in kennels?
Will the lawn and garden be maintained?
Have sitters maintain that 'lived in' appearance, collect and forward your mail, walk and cuddle your dog and maintain your garden while you're away

Sitters - Why be a housesitter?
Home minding service = Free rent
From one to a few weeks = Cheap holiday
A few months = home renovation, work or study interstate
Six months to a year or more = Free rent or save for own home
For whatever reason, house and pet sitters can save $100's or even $1,000's by living rent free! - whilst providing a valuable service to the home owner!
Potential sitters should
register for house-sitting so owners know a little about you and can decide who will best meet their needs.
