First of all, what is a live-in? When domestic and household staffing agencies post a job for a live-in, it means that your employee will live either in the house with you or in other housing provided, typically on your property. This being said, we have had clients that provide housing off property, or a stipend for rent as an incentive. What type of positions are common to see for live-in? Our most popular live-in position is Nanny, but we often see Live-In Housekeeper, Live-In Chef, Live-In Butler. 

Here’s something else that we have noticed lately with our open Live-In positions- they often make more per hour than Live-Outs! An immediate objection may be, “But we are paying for their living expenses/housing.” Our objection would be, “This is not an exchange. Serious live-in candidates are not in this for just free housing. You are hiring a professional who has made a career in this industry and is willing to give up all or more of their personal life to have the opportunity to work with your household.” 

And we mean it! We interview candidates on a regular basis that have made an entire career of being a Live-In employee. They are making themselves available to you and flexible to your needs, on a level that a Live-Out just simply cannot, which often reflects in their desired hourly rate. We recommend having at least a separate bedroom and bathroom available for a live-in, should you choose to go this route.
