Although somewhat uncertain at first about how this was going to work out, I am very impressed with the services provided by House Sitters of America and their user-friendly website. HSA covers all the bases, making it extremely convenient to screen potential sitters, begin conversations and eventually confirm a sitter. Everything is all recorded on your own page. Although relatively new to HSA, my husband and I travel often so in just 8 months, we have had three sitters, all have been excellent and are now our friends. Pamela

House Owners PAY NOTHING

House Sitters pay $30 per year

Have a quick look through the Sitter Testimonials and you'll quickly realize that membership on this site represents extraordinary value, and the more you use it the better it gets.

You could literally save tens of thousands of dollars over a single year of membership, living rent-free* in wonderful houses around the country.

Once you've paid for your membership, there are no other costs (apart from the everyday costs involved in house sitting*). We do not charge extra for metropolitan zoning like some sites do. We don't charge for special privileges, or for extra features. We don't charge for our friendly support or... yes, that's right, there is nothing more to pay.

So get involved

It's easy to register as a Sitter or to place a free House Ad. You get access to all of the listed members, and they all get to view your Ad or profile.

You could be organising your first "sit" or sitter in a matter of minutes.



*FREE: House sitting is usually free, for both sitter and house owner, although this is completely up to the individuals. There are usually some costs that need to be covered by either the sitter or the house owner e.g. electricity, phone usage, vet fees etc. How these costs are handled needs to be agreed before the sit begins. House sitters pay a single annual membership fee, while house owners pay nothing to advertise their house or to contact sitters.
