House Sitters Wanted

Get the e-book - a decade of house sitting experience.

I started this website because I travelled the world as a professional house sitter for a decade from 2005. Over those years, having received dozens of e-mails every day from the internet, 50% of them wanting me to house sit, and 50% wanting to be employed as a house sitter, I  worked with a commercial developer to build a website enabling sitters and homeowners to communicate. I hoped to make a modest beer-money income whilst providing a useful service. The site generally works well, especially as it's totally free of charge. I might still one day charge members for a subscription, but until that day comes, whilst the development and marketing is still ongoing, I'm running the site completely unpaid.

More recently, as membership has grown, I've been struggling with support tickets because the site really needs maintenance to function fully and resolve properly on mobile devices. The cost of updates will be about $3000 and it's all self-funded.

In order to achieve funding for the updates, I'm selling copies of my comprehensive e-book, which is an invaluable house-sitter’s reference work.  Its 83 pages contain invaluable advice on such issues as house sitter / owner draft agreements, do's and dont's, and financial information on keeping your overheads super-low in order to make a living as a professional house sitter, as I did.

The e-book is only, exclusively, available from the link on this website. I've kept the cost down to only GBP£5 (or other currency equivalents) and if sufficient members / visitors buy a copy, I should be able to keep this website going.

The 'buy now' button will take £5 via PayPal, and I'll send you a full copy within 24 hours. Thank you for your support.
