Here is Our List of the 6 Best House Sitting Jobs

House sitting is when you watch someone’s house while they are out of town. Sometimes, house sitting services include spending the night, and sometimes it just involves stopping in at defined intervals and making sure everything is okay. 

Whether you are looking to relax in the countryside, chill out in the suburbs, or experience all the amenities that a luxury house provides, there is an opportunity for you. All of these platforms charge a membership fee, but it’s generally less than you would pay for lodging on a week-long adventure, so if traveling the world is your goal, they are fantastic options.

Home Exchange 

The cool thing about home exchange is that the exchange doesn’t have to be reciprocal. Instead of swapping homes, you can offer your home and earn guest points, which you can then use to house sit elsewhere. 

Love Home Swap 

Love Home Swap has basically the same system that home exchange does. You can either complete a classic swap (you watch my house while I watch yours) or use a points system.  Love Home Swap is different in that it offers three tiers of membership and a two-week free trial. 

Trusted House Sitters 

Trusted House Sitters is very similar to the two websites above, but focusing on pet sitting. If you’re a traveler who doesn’t mind taking care of the dog or cat while on vacation, it’s a great option. This website connects homeowners to pet sitters, but with a travel-related twist. 

Luxury House Sitting 

Luxury House Sitting connects homeowners with luxury homes to house sitters and pet sitters looking to stay in beautiful homes for incredibly low prices. This platform boasts the cheapest plan of all – house sitters only have to pay $25 per year for access to the platform and can negotiate a fee with the homeowner before accepting any assignment.
