About my Listing

How do I make myself available for house sitting in my local area?

If you are interested in house sitting in your local area, it's a really good idea to opt in to our new Local Sitter Search. This is a way of searching our site which allows home owners to see which of our house sitters normally live closest to them on a map (previously home owners could only see which country our house sitters normally lived in). To appear in our Local Sitter Search you need to create your own sitter available listing (if you haven't done so already) and choose the 'Local Sitter Search' option.

Please note that to appear on the right part of the relevant Search by location map you will need to ensure that you have filled out the address fields in your contact details correctly. For the database to include you on the right map, it is imperative that your address correct and that you type the name of your town/city into the town/city field of your registration form and not the name of your suburb! Note that your location on the map will only be shown to the nearest suburb. We will never reveal your street address or postcode!
