What is Home Watch?

The term Home Watch is defined as a visual inspection of a home or property, looking for obvious issues.

Many second home and rental property owners will decide that they do not need a Home Watch service. They go at it alone, or they will rely on a neighbor or nearby family member to ‘keep an eye out’ and hope that nothing goes wrong. This can have disastrous results. Problems such as plumbing leaks, rodent/pest infestations, even squatters on your property can not only be costly, but can also ruin the time you have in your treasured home.

Home Watch is a valued service that provides monitoring for your home or property through regular on-site inspections Inside and outside of the premises . During these visits, a Home Watch Professional will look for obvious issues and notify you in a timely manor.
