What is a reasonable amount of time to hear from HO about a sit

Hi @Danandnan,

On behalf of the forum team, a warm welcome to the TrustedHousesitter’s community. Congratulations on already getting some great holiday sits booked! In regards to your question there has been a very long discussion about that exact topic here that may help inform you.

As someone that is a HO and has been a sitter I have found that if a applicant messages me to kindly remind me they have been waiting a reply to their application (I respond well to that). If you need to decline an application for any reason I do find it courteous to send a message as to why you are pulling your application but it is certainly not necessary.

One a separate note, as you cannot share a link to your listing in this post, do share a link to your listing on your forum profile for a bit of extra exposure. But the main website is where ALL our members will see your opportunity and be able to apply and message with you.

If at any time you need any help don’t hesitate to reach out to our community here which is full of helpful members who have been through the process themselves and will happily give advice and guidance. And don’t forget our membership support team are always on hand to give assistance.

All the very best,

Kelly & the Forum Team
