What is the going rate for a House sitter?
What is the going rate for a house sitter? With HouseSit match House and Pet Sitting opportunities, our general guideline is that no money changes hands, and the house-sitter in exchange gains free accommodation. Any expenses incurred for pet care and/or essential maintenance may be covered by the home owner – this will be pre-determined in the written agreement between house sitter and home owner prior to the house sit taking place.
If you were to work with a professional house or pet sitter through an agency, the cost could be quite high to care for your home and your pets during your temporary absence from your property – this makes HouseSit match a great option for many people.
