HOW can you care for your property when you’re on holiday?

With both urban and rural crime on the rise an empty house over the holidays is never a good idea.

Increasingly pet crimes are being reported widely across Europe. Fortunately, today we have options that are inexpensive and more secure. Have you heard of ‘housesitting’?

Housesitting

Housesitting is a way for homeowners to find checked people online to care for their property and pets, without ‘care’ costing the earth.

In fact, by joining an online network you connect with housesitters who move in while you are away to care for your property and pets for free! For them it’s a holiday.

For you secure and affordable!

Experienced petsitters for free!

These days you find housesitting with lists of sitters often populated by retired professionals.

Retirees usually look for options in affordable travel. After a lifetime of work, home and pet responsibilities they want to see something of the world but at a price they can afford on a fixed income.

Many housesitters say they like active holidays and are happy to offer services like gardening, pet care and walking in exchange for free accommodation while they discover a new country or region.

Moreover, many say they prefer staying in a neighbourhood to an impersonal hotel or hostel while they visit as tourists, preferring to live like locals instead!

The housesitting networks online

Enabled by the internet ‘housesitting networks’ are like social networks but with added security and review systems allowing you to meet checked sitters online.  They help you find sitters to look after your home, prepare specific instructions and they follow those requests – it’s part of your ‘housesitting agreement’. Check the reputation of the network online (e.g. Trustpilot).

Pets cared for at home

The most popular use for housesitters is actually as petsitters, it cuts out the cost of kennelling. Moreover, pets remain in their home with their routines. Vets say this reduces animal stress especially when they sense their owners are leaving. It makes for happy pets, and a happy home.
