What is Home Watch?

Absentee homeowners we have your answer! Whether you are on vacation from your primary residence, own a second home, snowbirds, or have a rental property, we will ensure your property receives a thorough visual inspection of the interior and exterior. The National Home Watch Association defines Home Watch as “the visual inspection of a vacant home or property looking for obvious issues.” We conduct regularly (weekly or bi-weekly) scheduled inspections, on behalf of the homeowner. 

These inspections include a visual check of the entire property including the yard, outside structures, vehicles, exterior of the home top to bottom. The interior inspection includes checking thermostat, appliances, water heater, running water in sinks, flushing toilets, looking for leaks, smells, small invaders (bugs or rodents), removing mailers and packages and making sure every window and door is secured and locked. We use a comprehensive checklist customized to your property and your needs. After the inspection you will receive a detailed report with pictures. Your personal information and house keys will be kept secure and with the upmost privacy. Please give us a call to discuss all our methods to keep your keys and information safe.

So many things can happen to your home in your absence: break-ins, water leaks, electrical problems, insects, mold, and storms, to name a few. Conversely, preventive measures such as storm preparation and proactive maintenance should prevent many situations from arising. Even if you have a trusted neighbor or relative nearby, having a professional acting on your behalf is a much better and more effective option.

We have a home security system, isn’t that enough? Home security systems are not guaranteed to scare off burglars. Most alarm systems notify the monitoring company which will then notify the authorities of a possible break in, but the burglar can be in and out of your home before the authorities arrive. Professional burglars may cut the power to your home days in advance so that your alarm system is grave dead, and their presence is not detected.

A Certified Home Watch Inspector creates a regular presence in your home that can detour an invader from choosing your home as a target. We will remove flyers and packages on your doorstep, debris from your yard, and check your alarm system, and doors and windows, change lighting timers and look for any signs of tampering.

Security systems also cannot detect leaks under the sink, at the water heater, invasion of inserts or rodents, or the temperature in your home being too low or too high. All these small things can grow to be huge problems and cost you thousands of dollars, if left unattended.
