Going away for less than 6 months?
If your career break is less than 6 months, renting out your house is likely to be next to impossible. The solution? A housesitter. HouseSit Match lets you find a sitter who will look after your house for free! Plus they will look after the place, feed the cat, walk the dogs and will even mow the lawn. There’s no catch - HouseSit Match recruits Aussies who want to stay here while they work, so are willing to look after your gaff in return for a place to stay. Clever eh?
