Those with housekeepers...

About how much do they charge? We were thinking of - at some point in time - getting a housekeeper to come maybe once every two weeks and I was just curious on what is good price wise. TIA. Smile

Re: Those with housekeepers...

  • a lot of it depends on COL and home size. When we lived in a lower COL area, it was  $85 (every two weeks). Now, its $115 every two weeks in a higher COL area. My mom has a much bigger house (in our current city) and pays $130 weekly. My MIL lives in a very very LCOL area and they pay $75 for weekly.
  • I used to clean houses when I was putting myself through college. I took care of just about everything and I got paid $50 per week. Granted, that was about 8-10 years ago so prices have gone up, but hopefully that gives you an idea.
  • We'll be getting one in a few weeks.  She charges $20/hr and typically spends 2-4 hours at a house (depending on size and frequency that she's there).
  • thank you!
