From time to time we ask our homeowners what drove them to seek a housesitter, and how does housesitting help them manage their property. A new expat homeowner recently joined HouseSitMatch looking for a long term sitter (10 months) to housesit near Durham in the UK. And, as we usually do, we approached the owner to ask if we can help them find any specific skills or experience for this housesit. We also like to ask what in particular motivated them to choose us above the competitors. Read on to hear her comments about how we are helping her as an expat homeowner, and her responses to our particular questions.
