his money maker takes House
Watching (idea ID : 287) one step further. Many people own vacation homes
that they use during the summers or just a few months each year. The rest of
the time, the home is left vacant. This exposes the home to many security problems.
The ideal solution would be for someone to keep an eye on the place, and still
not be as costly as maintaining a full-time staff or maid to maintain the home.
That's where you come in.

As a Vacation House Sitter, you will basically stay in the Vacation House as
if you were the owner. You will undertake any minor repairs that may be needed
or make arrangements for repairmen to carry out the repairs. It's up to you
to work out the billing arrangements for such repairs with your client. You
will re-direct any mail to your client. The scope of your responsibilities will
basically be between you and your client. This is a win-win situation because
for the large part of the year, you get to stay in (probably) a luxurious Vacation
House while your client can rest assured that there's someone looking after
his place. Obviously for security reasons, you must have impeccable references
and definitely NO criminal record. In this service, reputation is what makes
the difference between having lots of house-sitting jobs or none. It's an especially
nice way for singles to make extra money.
