** there a few exceptions where you may be asked to pay for some of the expenses. Make sure to read all the information for each request.
House sitting is becoming more and more popular worldwide. It’s a great way for people to be able to take a short, or an extended vacation.
It’s another way of saving money and enjoying everything that life has to offer.
The home owners won’t have to worry about their house while they are away.
The house sitters will have a place to stay without the big expense. It’s a great way for people like you to take a vacation without the huge expense of hotels and meals. You are living in someones house, making sure everything is running well, and making it looked lived in so that it doesn’t attract any unwanted visitors.
It’s a win-win situation for all parties.
The only real cost to the house sitter is the time and expense to get to and from the location (car, train, air, etc), the cost of groceries, and the cost for any sights you want to see.
It’s the perfect way to see all the places you have dreamed about seeing, but couldn’t afford to go.
Where to find a house to sit:
On these sites, you’ll find locations ranging near and far. Places to go and stay from within your country, to just about anywhere in the world.
There is an annual cost to joining these websites and getting access to the places you can go, but that cost is far less than what you would pay if you were to take a traditional vacation (add up the cost of your airfare, hotel, meals, sights, etc, and compare with what it to the annual cost to become a member of the website). It more than pays for itself.
There are some people that are taken great advantage of these offers. They live strictly by planning ahead and going from house sit to house sit, traveling the world, and seeing places they would never have been able to see if it weren’t for these opportunities. They learned to plan well ahead to make sure they always have a place to go; a place to live.
The options are endless. For example, you can take mini vacations, take care of a house for six months or more, or pet sit for someone that is going away and can’t take their pet with them.
Who wouldn’t want to take an inexpensive vacation? House sitting is one of the easiest and least expensive ways of taking a short or long vacation without all the costs.
