    Hi everyone,

    I’m hoping for some advice on finding a house-sit opportunity. I’ll be moving to el Garraf (Sant Pere de Ribes, Sitges, Vilanova i la Geltru), and I am hoping to find a house I can care-take or house-sit in exchange for rent. I know that many homes are used only for a month or two a year, and that both insurance and peace of mind take comfort in knowing they don’t sit empty.

    But I don’t know how to reach the home owners who might be interested. I have about 30 years experience in house-sitting, property care and house management, and good references.

    Any advice or ideas would be welcome.

    Thanks!

    Erik, in Dublin

    HI there. Can’t offer any advice but interested in your posting re hose sitting. Not quite sure if you mean you do house sitting in lieu of paying any rent – can you clarify please? Have you already found somewhere in the Garraf area? What is your plan for when the homeowners are in residence? Now back to watching the pouring rain!

    Hi, yes, that’s exactly what I am hoping to find: an exchange of my services as care-taker and security for rent. Still looking! Plans for when home owners are resident depends on when that is, how often, how long and if there’s an option to stay on-site or not. Without a specific house to consider it’s hard to project…..

    Are you thinking about doing something like this yourself?

    Or??
