Milton, ON, House Sitters
House sitting is one good way for home owners to have someone look after their dwelling and pets while they are away. For travelers, offering these services can be a good way for them to save rental expenses and work on a limited budget especially if they are traveling to other countries.
House sitting is an arrangement between an owner and sitter where they visit your residence and take care of it while you are away. It also includes taking care of your pets if you have any. Sometimes, this involves allowing the person looking after your place to stay in the dwelling for free, although we don't expect that of our customers. If you're the owner of an apartment, condominium, townhouse, or other dwelling and you occasionally need your place looked after, here's a simple guide to help you in finding good house watching services.
What can you expect from a house sitter? Their responsibilities can include taking care of the dwelling, maintaining your lawn and garden, your yard, and taking care of your pets as well, and if that's the case, just let us know that you're interested in our in-home dog boarding.
House sitting includes making your place clean, secure, and safe. Specifically, you can expect them to mow your lawn, do gardening, maintain the pool if you have one, dispose of the garbage, collect your mail and packages for when you return, and provide general security for your home and care for your pets.
You can find many condo sitters, even from outside the country who are willing to give their services to you. Most often, they are people who love to visit and experience other countries but have a limited budget, or prefer to save on accommodations when travelling. We don't offer this kind of long distance form of the service, we are simply a local business that can do all these things for you.
This is great, because you don't need to go through online directories where property owners and travelers meet online to arrange long distance home sitting services. It's also better to have someone in your own community looking after your place rather than someone from out of town.
If you intend to have someone take care of your place while you are away, it may be a good idea to inform your insurance company about the sitting service you have hired. If it's live-in house keeping for a longer period, you may want to be extra secure with in the arrangement as well and ask for a bond from the sitter equivalent to the rent for the period of time that your dwelling will be taken care of you will be away. Keep in mind that to make the arrangement secure, owners should have an agreement in writing to make the details binding and solid.
You also have to screen whoever may watch over your dwelling, belongings, and pets to help you have that peace of mind even if you are away for long, and of course, you have to make sure that the people you are entrusting your properties are trustworthy
Luckily, you don't have to worry yourself with any of the searching, bonds, or any of the other complications that come with vetting individuals from abroad since we are local to Milton and we don't plan to stay in your home while you are out of town. All we ask is to have an initial meeting with you to assess which chores you would like us to take care of each day.
We offer House Sitting for $50 per day, including any chores that you need done.
