Costs & Statistics

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

 

HOUSE OWNERS - IT'S ALL FREE!
That's right, it will cost you absolutely nothing to become a full member, and place as many ads as you want, for years! You can also browse through the FIND A SITTER list for free, and contact any of the sitters you're interested in... yes, for free.

HOUSE SITTERS - $65 PER YEAR, UNZONED
Have a quick look through the Sitter Testimonials and you'll quickly realise 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 other sites do - this alone can save you well over $400 each year!

House sitters are able to browse through the FIND A HOUSE list and contact any house owner that catches their eye. They can organise email alerts whenever a new house is listed that meets their requirements. They have full control over their profile and get to use our powerful internal Messaging System to organise their communications with House Owners - and there's much more. All of this opens up a vibrant world of House Sitting opportunity - all for $65 pa.

LATEST WEBSITE STATISTICS

Let's talk big numbers now. We attract more homeowners, and more house sitters than any other Australian site. We get a lot more activity too - more contacts directly from homeowners to sitters and vice versa.

We even get homeowners choosing not to place an Ad and just contacting the Sitters directly, which means that the number of house Ads is just the beginning.

Have a look at the top-line statistics for the past few months (in the chart below) and think seriously about registering immediately. These numbers are unedited, they are generated automatically and published here - that's how confident we are in the performance of the site.

NOTES:

HOUSE ADS: Some owners choose not to place an Ad, preferring to contact Sitters directly. This means that there are always more Houses available than the ones listed on the site, increasing the chance that Sitters will get a great house sit.

HOUSE SITTER CONTACTS: The numbers in the chart above refer to the first contact enquiry made when a registered House Owner first clicks on the "CONTACT" button on a Sitter's profile.

 

WE HAVE THE NUMBERS

Month by month, we generally have more houses advertised and more sitters available than any other service in Australia. We have earned this kind of support over many years by offering great value, an effective service and friendly support. And lots of activity means that you are more likely to find a house or a sitter here than anywhere else.

So, what are you waiting for? Your adventure awaits...

*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.
