Diana's Home Sitting Service searches for responsible Home Sitters to live in and properly maintain unoccupied homes. Our Home Sitters are carefully screened and selected to move into a quality home with their own furniture on a temporary basis. We also provide Home Sitters for furnished homes when owners are on vacation or leave their homes unattended for an extended period of time.
As a Home Sitter, you benefit from the opportunity to live in a quality home while paying a greatly reduced fee. You can expect to pay $400 - $500 a month in exchange for taking excellent care of the residence. There is a $500 damage deposit, $100 of which is a non refundable processing fee. There is no minimum lease period required.
All of our Home Sitters are professionally screened for credit, employment, residential and criminal history. There is a $35.00 non-refundable charge for screening ($40 for married couples).
We carefully screen all applicants for:
| Consumer Profile — which verifies SS#|| Eviction History|
| Public Records|| Criminal Background|
| Credit Reports|| Wash/Idaho Sex offenders|
| Residential History|| Employment Verification|
| Rental Databases|| |
Our Home Sitters are also required to carry a minimum of $100,000 non-owner occupied liability insurance policy. This type of policy typically costs around $125 a year, (see your insurance agent for more information).
Market conditions allow most of our Home Sitters to move into a residence for a minimum of 1 month. Many times they are able to reside there for much longer, sometimes over a year. Ongoing and frequent communication with our Homeowners and Home Sitters is our standard. We inform Home Sitters promptly of any change in the home's status or the owner's plans. And we always strive to make any transition in or out of a residence as hassle free as possible.
