Housecarers is one of the longest-running house sitting websites out there. Set up in 2000, the site has been running for more than a decade. It’s one of the most popular house sitting sites and is especially good for finding house sits in the USA, Europe (particularly France) and also Australia, where Housecarers is based.
Over the past few years Housecarers has made a number of improvements to both the design and functionality of the site, making it easier for house sitters and homeowners alike to use it.
Reviews for Housecarers from house sitters are generally always positive and it is consistantly recommended as a house sitting site to join.
Housecarers has one membership plan, a 12 month membership. This costs $50 normally, however you can get the membership here for $45 (10% discount, no discount code needed).
Given the number of house sitting opportunities Housecarers has (it doesn’t have as many as Trusted Housesitters, but it tends to have more than most other sites) this makes Housecarers one of the best value house sitting websites.
