In-depth House Sitting Website Reviews
As every house sitting platform works differently, we've created some in-depth reviews to really detail all the options and features available. So if you really like to see what's on offer before you pay any money, you'll get a lot of indepth knowledge, and tips on how to make the most of these sites, to ensure you get the house sits you want.
Are house sitting websites good value?
We think so, yes! The way we look at it is that every year we save over $20,000 dollars on our accommodation. We also save on utilities, WiFi costs and car running expenses. That's a huge chunk of the budget dealt with!
And what's the best way to secure continual house sits around the world? Well, we've done this by investing in all the platforms that can help us. We started by joining 4 different sites and we recouped our investment within the first week of house sitting! Now we don't need to be members of so many sites as we get referrals and repeat sits to add into the mix too. Most of our sits come through TrustedHousesitters, but we also sign up to 1 or 2 regional sites when we can, to make sure we have access to the best opportunities available.
What if I'm NOT house sitting full-time?
Then you have to weigh up and decide what represents the best value for you. If you are only house sitting once or twice a year for vacations, work out your overall savings once you've taken into account airfares, visas and other related costs. Assess for yourself whether the cost of a house sitting platform equals good value.
Value can be represented by more than just money too. We like that we are supported by professional businesses that we can talk to in the event of a problem. We like that members have usually been through some kind of ID verification and that on the smaller sites you can enjoy more personal attention. The larger sites often have other benefits - like the added security of the 24 hour Vet Line for pet advice and home owner insurance at TrustedHousesitters, or the StopOver feature at Nomador.
And we value the stress free living this lifestyle gives us, along with the mutual exchange that helps others experience longer or more frequent travel while knowing their pets are being loved in their own homes.
And remember, it's free to browse on any of these house sitting sites. You can check out which resonates most with you before you part with any money!
