House sitters in the USA have many different motivations behind why they choose to become house and pet sitters.
Some will be looking to save on accommodation costs while traveling to other states or abroad. Others may enjoy local staycations to see different neighborhoods in their area, while enjoying the company of pets. Some house sitters may be motivated by the opportunity to earn extra income as a “side hustle”.

As you can see, there are pros and cons to each type of house sitting – with slightly different dynamics between house sitter and homeowner for each.
