There are hundreds of other websites, magazines, classifieds and online directories where home owners can advertise their properties for rent. Here at MindMyHouse.com we're trying to do something different by providing a forum for home owners and house sitters to meet for the free exchange of goods (accommodation) with services (house and pet sitting). Our home owner members should be aware that every house sitter they may contact through our site will be expecting free accommodation in exchange for their house and pet sitting services. However, home owners and house sitters are free to negotiate the exchange of money as suits their particular house sitting assignments. If you expect rental payments from your house sitter please state this clearly in your listing and in your first contact with house sitters.
