How much should I get paid for house sitting?
I am going to house sit for my friends family this winter break from Dec. 24 - 31. They have 2 cats and 2 dogs that they want me to look after. They don't want me to be away from the house for any longer then 5 hours at one time, so I will pretty much just be living there for those days. They will be supplying me with food for the week, but of course this means I will be missing Christmas with my family. They also live in the mountains (15 minute drive from town) and I have no car so that would mean I will be pretty much isolated for those 7 days. I have never house sat before and they asked me how much I would want to be paid. So I come to you ask, how much would be a fair amount to be paid for this gig?
