How to choose a house sitting website that meets your expectations and offers available house sitting gigs, requires some investigation.

To help you choose a house sitting website, we have researched the websites listed below. Fees to join range from USD20 to USD120 per annum for house sitting memberships.

Take some time to explore as many as you feel you need to, asking yourself some of the following questions

  • How easy is the website to navigate? Do they make it easy for you to search by location, by dates, by house sit length?
  • Are you looking at house sits in one particular country, or are you seeking wider international opportunities
  • What is the cost of membership? Is it worth paying more if the site offers more opportunities?
  • What is the ratio of a house sits to house sitters? Some sites show you the number of applicants for each house sit.
  • Do you prefer a website that offers a more personalised service?
  • Do they offer additional support such as email alerts?
  • Is there a free trial offer?
TrustedHousesitters.com — The largest house sitting site on the web, and also the fastest growing. It has a lot of UK and European house sits and is also growing in Australia, New Zealand and North America.  We have used this site to get most of our European house sits.  They are the most expensive (US119 annually for both House Sitters and Homeowners) to join but do have a large support team to provide backup.

They have a comprehensive Trust and Safety system with three levels of verification: Basic, Standard and Enhanced.  Verifications include criminal background checks, I.D. verifications and I.D document checks.
