Are you someone who likes to make money, but hates the normal 9-5?. Luckily, you no longer have to go into the office to earn some cash because someone is willing to pay you to hang around the house all day, so long as you do it at their place. Yes, you could live the glorious life of a Canadian house sitter and some gigs are willing to pay you $150 a day. 

CareGuide, a company that specializes in care-giving services, is offering well-paying jobs across the country. If you're looking for some cash, you can make $150 a day just to chill in someone’s house and water their plants while they are away. 

The application process is pretty straightforward. You start by plugging in your email and name so that interested homeowners know what to call you.

However, your job won't just consist of lounging on the couch, and you are expected to upkeep the house while the original owners are away. 

You can set your rates and select what services you are willing to offers which include pet feeding, plant watering, snow clearing, and more.  

According to AppJobs, the average house sitter makes $16 per hour in Toronto, although prices vary depending on the job.

However, if you want to start getting some gigs, there is one catch. 

All applicants have to sign up for a TELESAFE membership, a service that allows you to receive messages and phone calls from homeowners without them having to give away their personal phone numbers.

However, if you're someone who doesn't mind being alone and doing your own thing, this job might be for you. 

“House sitting is like being on a paid vacation. All moments of it are designed only by yourself. You’ll be your own boss and make your own choices in Toronto,” reads a description of the job by CareGuide.
