HOME WATCH: For Your Peace of Mind
Do not Use
What is HOME WATCH, you ask?
HOME WATCH is designed to give you peace of mind while you are away. Your property is professionally inspected based on a personalized checklist we come up with together with you, based on the property and your specific needs and concerns. Basic, or intricate, we can handle the job.
Why do I need HOME WATCH?
Your property is a valuable investment which deserves professional oversight by a fully insured management company while you are away; an experienced yet affordable management company that will do a thorough inspection of your property and follow-up with a detailed report sent to you immediately upon completion.
Trusts & Insurance Carriers may also require there be a presence at a property while being held vacant, and we’ve even seen a discount apply at times!
How do I know if there is a problem?
We will inspect your property regularly according to our tailored contract and report any issues to you immediately. With our detailed inspection report, you can be assured that each item is getting our full attention every visit.
Can you help me with household tasks other than checking on my property?
We can coordinate access and meet authorized repair and utility providers, accept deliveries on your behalf, and other services upon request.
Can I request a special visit?
If you feel the need for an additional visit for any reason, we will complete an additional inspection for you upon written request.
What if there is an emergency?
If something happens outside of our scheduled visits, our 24/7 emergency line is available to all clients, and can be used along with security systems, protocols, and neighborhood contacts. We will be your local “boots on the ground” whenever needed.
Are you insured?
Yes. We are fully insured.
