I am a Visiting Professor at the University of Texas at Austin and I am looking for a house, condo, or large apartment to house sit, starting immediately and potentially until September 2016. Housing wanted for my parents, my sister, and me. I am open to various types of housing, with a preference for the UT area but the surrounding cities would also be considered. I would enjoy taking care of pets and tending a garden; forwarding mail and other small household tasks would be fine. I am already in Austin and I could visit any possible housing.
