Is Trusted Housesitters Worth Joining? Read Reviews From Other House Sitters

Trusted Housesitters posts more house sits per month than any other site. When you’re trying to judge how good a house sitting site is, the number of house sitting opportunities it has is probably the single most useful factor in assessing that site.

This is especially useful if you’re new to house sitting and don’t have many references yet. If this is you, you may find that in the beginning the best approach is to apply for a lot of different house sits and just see which ones you get accepted for. Once you have a bit of experience under your belt you won’t need to adopt this strategy as much but in the beginning, it’s probably the best way to get about things.

Since Trusted Housesitters posts the most house sitting opportunities, it makes sense to join this site particularly if you’re planning on house sitting in Europe (particularly the UK, France and Spain), Australia and the US where it has a lot of house sitting opportunities
