Well, there’s got to be some benefit to getting old and this is certainly one of them.
Would you want to entrust your fragile ornaments, expensive art-works or beloved pets to a teenage gapper? No, I didn’t think so. After seeing the state they leave some hostel kitchens in, I wouldn’t either.
The good news is that age and experience act in your favour when you are looking for a house-sit. Older sitters are generally considered to be more reliable and careful with other peoples belongings.
Older sitters are more likely to:
- own or have owned their own property
- know how to deal with household emergencies
- appreciate how hard you worked to buy your home
Older sitters are less likely to:
- forget to water the plants/feed the pets
- stay out all night
- have wild parties
- play loud music
