Top House Sitters related questions

It depends on what you have agreed upon with your chosen Tasker. In most cases, the travel fee is shouldered by the sitter you hire since you provide the accommodation (your home). Other fees that you need to consider are home repairs that may come up during their stay. 

It’s not easy to leave your house with someone else. The most important thing to look for in a house sitter is professionalism. You need to make sure that your home will be left in good hands. Even if their tasks may be pretty straightforward, you need to trust the person you are hiring. Make sure they have good communication skills since you will be leaving with quite a handful of daily responsibilities.

As a homeowner, a house sitter expects you to give them proper instructions on what needs to be done at home. Do not mistake them for housekeepers, gardeners, or pool cleaners. It is not always expected of them to take part in intense cleaning tasks. Their main responsibility is to make sure the house is how you left it. 

That is up to you to decide! The duration of a house sit depends on how long you will be gone. You may need a house sitter for as short as a few days while you are on holiday. Some require a house sitter who can stay for many months. These are often made by people who need to travel abroad for work. Details like this should be made clear in your task post.

What do house sitting services include?

House sitting is done by a trusted professional who is experienced with caring for others’ homes and pets. People often think of availing of this service when going on vacation or business trips. Some even think of long-term house sitting when work keeps them away from home. If you find yourself in any of these situations, a house sitter near you may be the perfect solution. Here’s what you can expect from house-sitting services on Airtasker:

Occupying your home

A professional house sitter ensures that your home remains occupied. Their task is to make it look like you are home. Think of it as someone filling in your place. They will do tasks that you would do daily: switching the lights on and off, taking out the rubbish, and locking the doors. 

Don’t expect them to do deep cleaning. You can always think of hiring someone to do the housekeeping for you. A house sitter may do simple cleaning and maintenance tasks such as dusting and vacuuming. You can expect a house sitter to leave your home in the condition you left it. They can also care for your indoor and outdoor plants if instructed, limited to simple watering and mowing. Getting a professional to tend to your garden may be a better idea for long-term house sitting jobs.

Care for animals

Need to leave your pets at home? A house sitter may be able to watch over them while you’re away. Most house-sitter-homeowner-agreements cover daily care for your pets as well. As the homeowner, you provide them with day-to-day tasks for your pets. You can also include giving them their medication or treatment. Take note that they can’t groom your pet. If you want your furry friend looking their best when you get home, maybe hire a professional groomer before you arrive! You can always relay messages to your homesitters to ensure the best for your pets. 

Repairs, maintenance and miscellaneous services

Aside from occupying your home, a home sitter can be in charge of other services as well. If agreed upon, they could bring in the mail and newspapers daily. A house sitter can also answer phone calls and relay any important messages to you. 

The occasional home repair can come up now and then: a small leak in the kitchen or damages from a strong storm. It is a sitter’s responsibility to get any necessary repairs. These will be reimbursed by you as the homeowner. It is also your decision whether your house sitter will do repairs or hire a professional.
