House Sitting For Retirees: Why It Works

Stories of retiree house/pet sitters prove that being in your 60’s does not mean you’re bound to a boring lifestyle. There are many retirees in and out of Australia that find companies like Aussie Pet and Home Minders to be a great help to having that one-of-a-kind travel experience that they didn’t previously know is possible for them.  Retirees find that house sitting websites are a platform where they can connect with home and pet owners who need caring, responsible individuals to look after their pets and houses while they are away. In return, retiree house sitters are able to save money on accommodations and get to have a great holiday.

Still a bit unconvinced? Well, we’ve listed a few reasons why we (and thousands of other people) know why house sitting for retirees work.

You get to travel longer

The biggest reason retirees (even younger people) cut short their travel stay anywhere is budget constraints. As a house sitter, you do not have to pay for accommodations whether you’re staying in Brisbane or Perth or wherever. You don’t have to worry about running out of money to pay for a place to stay and instead spend several weeks or even months in a new location and experience the local scene, meet new people and just enjoy your much deserved holiday.

We cannot say this enough. The biggest (and most obvious) advantage of being a house sitter regardless of age is the amount of cash you save by not staying in cabins or hotels. Retirees on a fixed income can afford to travel to places that would otherwise be financially inaccessible to them. They get to holiday in great locations and stay in comfortable, safe homes.

Make new friends

Retirees actually meet a lot of new people as house sitters and make lifelong friends while they’re on house sitting jobs. They meet the homeowners’ neighbors, friends, even the homeowner’s vet sometimes. Walking the homeowner’s dog alone is a great way to meet the locals and this helps make retiree house sitters feel more at home.
