Although House Sit Match have opportunities all over the world, with house sits from new and unusual locations being added all of the time, most of their opportunities tend to be in the UK, Europe (particularly Spain) and Australia. Although the site is worth looking at regardless of where you’re planning on house sitting, House Sit Match is particularly worth looking at if you’re planning on house sitting in the UK, Spain or Australia.
Note: House Sit Match are currently doing a free 60 day trial. If you decide the site isn’t for you, and cancel within this period, you won’t be charged. This is a good opportunity to trial the site out for free.
House Sit Match offer three different annual pricing options: £35, £65 and £95 per year. The benefits of the higher priced options are more images on your profile and more text on your profile. The £35 per year option for example allows 150 words and 2 images while the most expensive option, the £95 option, allows 800 words and up to 7 images.
The £65 and £95 options also allow you to add a video on your profile while the £95 option gets you featured on the home page. Paying the £95 membership also means you’re higher placed in the search results of house sitters (when a homeowner searches for a sitter, those paying the £95 membership come up higher in the results).
Although you can start out at £35 and upgrade a later point, it probably makes sense to at least go for the £65 option where you get 5 images and 500 words, just about what you need to sell yourself. Having the option to embed a video is also worthwhile.
All prices are in pounds sterling, which generally means they are more in most other currencies as the pound is quite strong against other currencies at the moment. It’s a good idea to check the price in your own currency and compare it to the other house sitting sites, most of which have their currency in $USD.
