This article will provide you with all the information you need to find amazing house sitting jobs in the US. For 2 years I’ve been traveling the world as a digital nomad. I use house and pet sitting websites to keep my expenditure down and to enhance my overall traveling experience and in this post, I’ll tell you how.
I’ve always had an affinity with the USA. I visited for the first time over 14 years ago and immediately fell in love with the place. I’ve made a habit of returning at least once a year but since leaving the UK in 2022 I’ve spent 3 long stints house sitting in various states and cities across the US.
It can be tough, and perhaps a little daunting, getting started. But there are some great websites to help ease you into the role of a house sitter. Along with a few handy tips and my own personal experiences, this article will set you on the right track to securing some truly amazing house sits in the USA.
How to House Sit in the USA
Although essentially offering a similar service, many house sitting websites available have different features. Finding the right one for you is an important step when becoming a house sitter.
Below, I’ve outlined my top 5 websites for finding house sitting jobs in the US. I’ve also outlined the pros and cons of each, that I’ve come across to help you choose which one may be best for you to try.
1. Trusted Housesitters
My go-to platform is without a doubt Trusted Housesitters. It is one of the premier websites for house sitting and currently has over 3,500 homes accepting applications in the US alone. It is a great website if you’re serious about house-sitting in America.
Trusted Housesitters is number one for the sheer number of listings they offer, but they also have a great website and app. Searching for the precise listing you want, in the area you desire, during the exact time frame that works for you is easier than on any other site I’ve come across. You can save filters and searches and opt to be notified immediately when the right results become active.
Trusted Housesitters offers three membership tiers, each with distinct benefits corresponding to the price. The premier membership, priced at $260, includes cancellation insurance, enhanced customer service, and two annual airport lounge passes. A more budget-friendly option is the basic membership at $129/year with unlimited worldwide house sits.
