When to post a sit

We have several trips planned for 2023. I have posted dates for the first two times we will be away, but so far have received no applicants. Is it easier to find sitters for long stays vs short? We plan to be away for weekends as well as 2-3 months.

Hi @Keyres and welcome.
There isn’t a one size fits all with homeowners or sitters. We are all different and sometimes a short sit will fit in with our plans and at other times a longer sit would suit us better. It all depends on where the sit is and what else is going on in our lives.
I would suggest go ahead and list your dates and perhaps make contact with any sitters who you think would be a good fit.


Hi @Keyres. Welcome to our community. You may want to include a link to your TrustedHousesitters page in your forum profile, then ask our members to take a look at it. They may be able to provide tips and ideas as to why you’ve not received any applicants.

Here’s how to put the link in your profile:
