1. What Is House Sitting?

House sitting is an exchange of services between one or more home owners and one or more house sitters. The home owner(s) will leave their home for a predetermined amount of time, and the house sitter(s) will look after the house - which typically includes maintaining the house and gardens, and looking after the family pets (pet sitting). Basically like baby sitting, but for houses and pets instead of babies.</ br> Mostly house sitters aren't paid, as it's seen as a fair exchange: the house sitter(s) get free accommodation and bills (aka how to live rent free); the home owner(s) get free pet care and peace of mind that their house is being looked after whilst they're away. Whilst this is seen as the norm, there are a wide spectrum of house sitting exchanges, from house sitters paying for bills, all the way up to house sitters being paid to sit. This means that there are house sits and house sitters out there that will suit everyone. Some of our popular house sitting blog posts include:
