What is it? Housesitting has become very popular in recent times as a concept that is mutually beneficial to both the home owner and the house sitter – The home owner gets their home, pets and gardens cared for while they’re away and the housesitter gains rent free accommodation in return for minor household duties they would be doing wherever they lived.
Why register? Registering as available for home minding lets owners know who is actually available, giving sitters the opportunity to write a little about themselves and why the owners should select them for caring for their home and pets.
Some owners are happy to place sitter wanted ads however many prefer to use registered sitters and will find someone suitable from the list of those registered as available at the time they start looking.
Housesitters, who are they? Housesitters are ordinary people just like you – from all walks of life and available for all sorts of reasons. Some are saving for a home, renovating their property, moving to a new area, re-establishing their lives, travelling with their own pets or wishing to save on motels or simply needing a break from the mobile home while touring. House sitters range from young singles or couples to families to retirees, from professionals to home makers and all offer something different – as the home owners also have different and varying needs. No one “type” of house sitter makes the “perfect sitter” for every house sitting situation.
