How much does a house-sitter get paid?

Jump to last reply

I am house sitting for an elderly couple. I agreed to house sit before I agreed to a payment amount. They said we could look up what other house-sitter's usually make and just try and find something fair.
I'm going to be house sitting for 1 1/2 weeks. My duties include watering the plants, lawns and two gardens. I have to water the gardens once a day and it takes a half hour each. I have to also weed the gardens. I need to check to make sure the ants outside don't get out of hand. I'm staying the night there because I don't have a car and it's easier because I have to take care of everything daily. I have the simple task of collecting the mail and signing for any packages that come in. I also take out the trash and recycling and compost.

There's also been some road work so I have to deal with the water being turned off for most of the day for a couple of days and possibly without warning.

What does someone usually get paid doing these things?
