Most owners do prefer to use registered sitters
and pre-select who they think will best meet their needs at the time they start looking.
This also allows them to retain full control over who knows they're going to be away.
So please, do take a little care over what your description says about you.
Present yourself along the lines of what you would look for in a sitter for your own home, including any relevant experience or skills with home minding or pet and garden care.
Remember, owners choose who they think will best meet their needs.

House sitting

An international house and pet sitting service for all city and country areas.
International travel options are huge with so many places to visit, things to see and experience, and with modern-day travellers having a little more time to enjoy each area, short term or long term sitting has become a two-fold benefit.

Travellers can look after someone else's home as an affordable means of accommodation, giving them potentially longer to explore and enjoy an area at a more leisurely pace.

And, while they're away, having a sitter live in their own home gives home owners the peace of mind so necessary for a happy holiday - the pets are being looked after in their own home, the mail collected, lawns mowed and that lived-in security maintained.

Housesitting can be a mutually beneficial arrangement for both the home owner and the carer with sitters wanted in both city and rural locations all around the world.

We also welcome feedback via Facebook 

Hint - Don't get buried in the crowd - help your ad stand out
by including some example city and area names for each country.
More owners will see your details and consider if you meet their needs when they pre-screen from the lists of registered sitters.
Also comment on any experience you may have with home care and looking after gardens and pets.

    separate lists for each state on it's own site).

    These are ads from home owners needing carers to look after their homes or pets.

    most owners do prefer to use registered carers and will usually find someone suitable at the time they start looking, only needing to place sitters wanted ads if they cannot find anyone available for their area.
Owners are welcome to place a free sitters wanted ad
Owners - List a sitters wanted ad for free,
including your dates needed, city/area and country names, and a little about what you're looking for, eg a family, couple, or single, active or retired, etc.
Do include whether your home is a farm, residence in town, apartment, close to beach, public transport, shops, facilities, etc. how many pets and what types and if you have a large or small garden.
Generally give the sitter an idea of what you are looking for and offering in return.

Sitters - To register as available for housesitting jobs
Register for housesitting
One listing for ALL areas Worldwide for 12 months.
But please, do list example places you are available for as your profile will then be viewed by many more owners rather than buried amongst all the others that say 'anywhere'.
No fee to change or update your details or availability.
(We do operate on a non-refund basis once your details have been listed).

Why Register?
Registering as available lets owners know who is actually available,
giving carers the opportunity to write a little about themselves and why the owners should select them for caring for their home and pets.
Some owners are happy to place sitter wanted ads however many prefer to use registered sitters and will find someone suitable from the list of those registered as available.

Important - Ensure more owners see your details.
Even if you are available for anywhere, do include several example city and area names for each country - the more example city / area names included, the better, as your ad will stand out from the crowd.

London, England - time to see all the sights

Had a great time!
Repeat housesitting in London for 6 weeks allowed us the time to see the sights at our leisure . . . took bus trips in different directions most days or stayed local as the mood took us . . . and having a sitter looking after our home in Australia meant a worry free holiday . . .

International Housesitting
Thanks to the universal reach of the internet, we are able to cover all international areas without having to open a physical office in every city. We've had successful sitters from New Zealand to London, Scotland to South Africa, Canada to Portugal, Italy to Greece, USA to Spain, France to Costa Rica and lots of house minding jobs in between.

From one week to several months to a year or more, home minders can gain free holiday accommodation or extra time to immerse yourself in an area and culture. Or time and space for home renovation, work or study interstate or simply to help save for your own home.

For whatever reason, sitters can save $1,000's by living rent free!
