Full time Live in vs. Live Out

Postby kdzenge1 » Mon, 09 Apr 2018 5:10 am

Hey everyone,

I am wondering if anyone would be able to give a general approximate of how much one should budget for spending on a full time live in maid vs. a live out maid (including housing, food, travel expenses, etc.) Any pros and cons of either option would be great to read about as well.

Thank you so much for your help! :)

Figure between $1000~$1200/mo minimum for a live-in maid. (all costs being considered)

For live out you need to add on the accommodation and travel costs ($30 - $50 a day). What you do here is find an agency who knows how to do this - it's not strictly kosher but they house a bunch of women in a condo or similar but the one who you hired it registered as living at your address.
