House Sitting Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the House Sitting Rate.

HSR = HSC / #D

  • Where HSR is the House Sitting Rate ($/day)
  • HSC is the total cost of house sitting ($) 
  • #D is the number of days of house sitting needed 

How to Calculate House Sitting Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate House Sitting Rate.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total cost of house sitting ($). 
    • The total cost of house sitting ($) is given as: 5,000.
  2. Next, determine the number of days of house sitting needed. 
    • The number of days of house sitting needed is provided as: 10.
  3. Finally, calculate the House Sitting Rate using the equation above: 

HSR = HSC / #D

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

HSR = 5,000 / 10 = 500.00 ($/day)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total cost of house sitting ($) = 600

number of days of house sitting needed = 5
