WHAT IS HOME WATCH?
A Home Watch service is designed to give you peace of mind while you are away. The official definition for Home Watch is “A visual inspection of a home or property, looking for obvious issues.” so, your home is being overseen by professionals looking for potential issues. Detailed checklists are used to ensure each and every visit is consistent, then logged and recorded to address your individual needs and concerns. If a situation does arise, you will be notified so the problem can be dealt with in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
WHAT DO YOU DO DURING HOME VISITS?
We perform a visual observation of the property looking for obvious issues along with light maintenance and offering solutions to the home owner on security measures to provide further piece of mind.
An interior perimeter check consists of visual observation of windows and doors to see they are secured, air conditioning and homes systems are functioning as designed as well as logging interior humidity to see it meets industry standards. Each visit is logged into our home watch software specifically designed to keep the home owner completely informed.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HOME WATCH SERVICES?
Your home may be one of the greatest monetary investments you will own in your lifetime, so having your very own, well seasoned professional on the job gives piece of mind knowing when something goes wrong, you will be informed promptly with immediate concerns handled quickly and efficiently.
We provide a key holder service so persons of your choice may gain access to the home in your absence. When those unwelcomed tropical storms and hurricanes pass through we offer pre-storm preparation and post storm clean up while you're away.
Most importantly, most home owners have not read the fine print within their homeowners insurance policies and are not aware many if not most insurance companies may not honor claims on an insurable event if their home has been unoccupied for 30 days or longer. Please contact your insurance agent to verify coverage for an insurable event if it has been unoccupied for 30 days or more without proof someone has been there. Our home watch visit reports provide proof we were on site to fulfil this insurance carrier requirement. We have your back and in many cases our fees may be tax deductible (check with your CPA for details).
HOW DO YOUR FEES WORK?
Each and every property is different and unique, along with home owners' expectations, so we must walk the property 'with the home owner present' to discuss in detail how the home owners desires to have their home overseen and maintained in their absence.
Having a licensed, insured and bonded contractor providing a professional service spending time on each property reflects in service fees charged. With this in mind, we offer the home owner a choice of service levels to suite everyone's needs.
