Have you ever seen a t-shirt with this emblazoned on the front?
John threatens to buy one every time we see one in a souvenir shop. I can’t help it. I’m an Internet nerdy girl. Sometimes it serves me well when Jeopardy is on, but as I get older, I tend not to remember EVERYTHING like I used to.
But I never forget how to crank up my computer and scour the worldwide web for answers. John says that not only can I locate, identify and classify each strand of hay in the stack, but I can find that allusive needle, as well. So when people find out that we travel the world as housesitters and ask, “How on earth do you find housesits?” John looks to me with a grin and replies, “Ask Google Girl. I just happen to be married to her.”
So, if you are seriously considering a life as a housesitter, Google Girl is here to rescue you from hours of frustrating searching and combing the Internet looking for the next sit. Here goes.
With house sitting becoming more and more popular, it seems like new online platforms are springing up every day. Here are a few things that make up a great housesitting website.
So now that you know the things we think are important in a great housesitting website, are you ready to see what’s out there? In our list we’ve included information like social media links, cost, average number of listings, photos allowed and a brief description of each site. We’ve thrown in a few caretaker and couple work sites, as well. We’ll update the list as more information is available and will add new sites as we find out about them. So take a deep breath, keep calm and hopefully our list will help you find that perfect housesit.
