I just wanted to give a shout out to TrustedHousesitters for having such an awesome platform for us to use.
I’m in Australia and on another site to expand my opportunities to sit. Ick - it’s just not conducive to a good experience for sitters. There are ads without pictures, or only of the pets and no house pics, and it’s like pulling teeth to get them. And hardly any people leave reviews, so most ads you have no idea what someone else has thought of the place (and because they don’t show reviews not left, you really are in the dark).
It makes you really appreciate the ease with which THS guides homeowners to set up their profile, as well as the quality of homeowners and sitters on the site (you get what you pay for with the cheaper ones, for sure).
Anyone else on other platforms and navigating something similar?
