How housesitting could help those early holiday worries, you know that feeling – that terrible knot that starts to form in your stomach as you drive away from your house to start a well-earned two-week holiday. By the time you’ve joined the motorway, those familiar worries are running through your mind: Did I turn off the toaster? The coffee machine? The iron? : you find yourself wondering frantically. What if I didn’t switch the hob off? What if we come home to a pile of ashes?
Thankfully, there’s a remedy for this panicked train of thought: housesitting. If you don’t have a friend or neighbour who can keep a steady watch over your home while you’re away, a housesitter can bring invaluable peace of mind. And a Web site called housecarers.com can help match you up with someone in search of a house to look after – and, more importantly, someone with whom you feel comfortable.
Intuitive and user-friendly, the site takes you through the whole process step by step – from understanding housesitting basics (under such headings as “What are the standard guidelines of a housesitting agreement?” and “Why do people register to housesit?”) to how to register and communicate through the site.
Legal issues such as dealing with homeowners’ insurance, security and bill-paying also are covered. When you’re finally ready to look for a housesitting candidate, enter in a few criteria (such as your location), from here you can browse the listings of prospective housesitters who fit this profile.
Of course, if you’re interested in the other side of the process – that is, becoming a housesitter yourself – the site is equally as useful. Just register your availability and preferences, and wait to see if there’s a homeowner in your area who’s desperate for a little peace of mind. Who says there’s no such thing as a win-win situation?
HouseCarers.com understands the importance of selecting the most reliable sitter to care for your most valued asset – your home. The site provides a professional service and is completely dedicated to the satisfaction of their members. The effective qualities of the site substantiate the claim, “Peace Of Mind While You`re Away.”
