Love the idea of scoping out other people’s houses and taking care of their plants while they’re gone? Curious about how others live - while also helping to make their lives easier?
Housesitter.com is part of the CareGuide family of websites, a group that emphasizes connecting skilled and dedicated workers to people who need them. According to the site, over 1 million users have trusted Housesitter.com to find someone to mind their plants and keep tabs on their home while they’ve been away. But CareGuide might not actually deliver what the promise and the more research we do on the site, the more opaque and mysterious it appears.
CareGuide and HouseSitter.com do not have the best reputation in the house sitting circle and we will provide more information on that below. Keep an open mind but be aware as you research whether this option will work for you.
