Fun post from FloriDUH - a blog about living in the sunny state:
Live like a millionaire -- without the millions
As jobs go, this one doesn't require heavy lifting.
Just go live in a house. And don't be a pig.
Here's the deal.
Linda Saavedra is opening the Tampa franchise of Showhomes.
She's looking for "home managers" to move into some of Tampa's houses until they sell, reports the Tampa Tribune.
You must be compulsively neat, have a home's worth of upscale furniture and don't mind moving every few months.
You don't get paid, just the chance to live like you've got gobs of money when you don't.
(Pardon our skepticism, but isn't that what got us in the mess we're in today?)
You'd take care of the lawn, paying utilities and keeping the home in "show-ready" condition at all times.
Some are worth as much as $5 million or as little as $250,000.
You get to pay for the privilege, too. For example, a home manager would pay $1,000 a month to live in a South Tampa home listed for $670,000.
Sorry, no smoking or pets. And your furniture has to pass muster.
You, with the bean bag chairs and ratty futon.
You're not going anywhere.
