There is no minimum or maximum time for a house sitting position. Depending on the sitters circumstances, a short stay may be appropriate. Most sitters do prefer a couple of weeks or longer.
If you are planning an extended trip away and are not sure if you should rent out your home, consider the benefits the house sitter will provide:
- The house sitter is Flexible and gives you the convenience of not having to put your furniture and other items into storage.
- You are not locked into a ‘Lease Agreement’ and if you chose to come home early, the house sitter is flexible and will be ready to move on very quickly.
