Sara shares her housesitting lifestyle: - house sits for 2 years in Melbourne VIC

I joined two years ago. Since then I have house sat twice - for the same people - once for six weeks, once for two years. I am now responding to other housesits (as this one comes to a close).

This experience has been great and I've had really nice feedback from the home owners of recent housesits I've applied to - I haven't been able to make a match yet re. dates and location but I will keep looking - even if it is just for 'holiday' house sits rather than being main place of living.

I do it for a number of reasons:

1. I was looking for ways to be able to make the time and
space to do part time study - by house sitting I could continue to work part time plus I had a lot of peace and quiet to study - it has been invaluable for that.

2. But I also did it because I have an
interest in alternative ways of living. I grew a vege garden, joined a vegie swap, took public transport or bike as often as possible, I picked and preserved the produce from the garden trees on the property I looked after... None of these I did 100%, or particularly well (re.vege garden), but the idea was to try and see what is possible - how you can approach work differently - ie. when I had dry patches of work (because I'm a casual) I put time into the property or preserving
something for the home owners. This isn't a a plug for a fantasy hippy lifestyle (it could start reading like that) - I am always aware that I wouldn't be able to do this if other people weren't working in the system fulltime with a house and a mortgage as a result - I just wanted to explore what is possible.

The standard was extremely high and it was a difficult choice but we eventually settled on a wonderful couple who come with great references from previous house-sits. They were also the FIRST to apply......which just shows that the early bird catches the worm!

Many thanks again & we will undoubtedly use your services next time. Best regards EASTERNTAS

Identify with the needs of the homeonwer First - when applying for a housesit

Good advise from a homeonwer for housesitter applications:
"Please note that we will not be responding to every person as we ask specifically for candidates who have experience giving insulin shots to animals to note this in their message to us, and if they do not, we will not be contacting them.

Please understand that we are getting messages only about how this will be good for the sitter/what they want, and that is not how we envision this service working: it needs to be a mutually beneficial relationship.

It is actually quite alarming to us how every candidate who has contacted us so far only talks about their needs"

We have already recommended to first identify with the needs of the homeowner - see below:

I recommend you try some different approaches to increase your response.
It is important to identify with the needs of the homeowner and show them how to help.
Initially don't talk too much about your own requirements and overload
them with questions - that can come latter. And don't just say see my profile I'm interested.

We ask homeowners to respond to all applications and send weekly reminders asking them
to do this. However sometimes they are pressed for time and only reply to the outstanding
applications - so it is important to make your applications stand out.

To view your applications please click the sent link from messages after login. If the username
in the sent message is red the message has been read by the homeowner.

It is also important to include all your favoured cities towns and city areas on your profile as many
homeowners search directly.

Loading up pictures, police clearances, certificates references etc and updating your calendar and Preferences also helps- the
more information accessible by the homeowner the better.

All the references, police clearances etc are placed in your private reference library that can only be accessed by
homeowners or homeowners you apply to.

Grateful Homeowner returns home to two loved doggies, fires lit, soup on and detailed handover

We recently went away leaving our two loved doggies and 15 chickens with
Harry (Highlander) our wonderful housesitter.

We came home to discover that in our absence the snow had fallen out of the sky, it had plummeted temperatures to sub zero and on top of it all we had hoped to have finished reasonably large building projects which had left pile of mud for as far as the eye could see.

We returned home to Harry who lit the fires, put a pot of soup on and ran through a detailed handover before leaving us to unpack and land back at home.

It was wonderful knowing that all would be taken care of so well while we were away. I have no hesitation recomending Harry or his lovely wife Jill who we met as well but did not house sit as she had
work commitments.

"Hi Sue,

Wow - that is very impressive.
Do you have any tips for successfully applying for
a housesit? regards Ian"

Sue (icare88)
"Hi Ian

Well, I have actually only been 'unsuccessful' with about 5 applications.
The first I never heard back from (which was rather rude), the second accepted me but gave the position to someone else without telling me - so I was very grateful not to be going there! The others were not happy about me taking my dog Dante with me - so that was OK.

When I am applying for a job, I try to read between the lines for what the owner is looking for. Mostly, I believe my success is due my love of animals. Dog lovers want someone who will take care of their dogs like they are their own, they are like their children and they really worry about them. So I make the animals my priority. I have also built a reputation for looking after the properties and leaving them in immaculate condition. And I have built up my references with contact numbers so that owners can call and check them out. I know that helps. However, I do have an attitude of trusting that I will be in the right place at the right time and I have been pretty flexible about travelling. I get a gut feeling for the places I want to apply for and only apply for the ones that feel right.

I hope that helps.

Carmen blogs about her housesitting experience in France

"Dear Ian

We have had good success with your site. We are currently on assignment in the South of France in Albi, France as a result of your postings.

We have been here since August 2010 and we are enjoying it immensely. Our girls are in French school.

Here is our blog :

We hope you will read it.

It is a little tough for us since we have 2 daughters now ages 13 and 9. So we have missed out on some assignments because of it. Usually because there is not enough space to accommodate us. The house in France is large with 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on 3 different levels. It has worked out for us. We are completing our assignment within one month and are hoping to find something else.

I hope this helps.
