  1. Hi Nader,

    I had no idea that would be a profitable niche. lol

    It is true that a lot of people actually pay others to "babysit" their house. I would think that is like one of the best "jobs" you can get, right?

    Specially if the house is a luxurious one. 🙂

    You gave some great insights on this niche and even actionable steps to take to benefit from it.

    I can see the big potential here.

    Thank you very much for sharing this!

    Have a wonderful week man! 😀

    • I'd imagine it'd be the dream job of every grown human being haha!

      There are some house sitting sites that focus purely on the luxury ones. That'd be awesome wouldn't it?

      I see myself using their bedroom Jacuzzi every night if it was me! 😀
