HOME WATCH FAQ'S

WHAT IS HOME WATCH? 

In addition to home inspections we proudly offer home watch services for those wanting to protect their investment while away. We offer three tiers in order for you to choose the best plan to fit your needs. Our levels of attention include weekly, bi-weekly or monthly inspections. Additional visits can be arranged per your request. We offer home watch services for single family homes, condominiums, villas, and estates.

 

WHY CHOOSE US FOR YOUR HOME WATCH?

  • We are Certified Home Inspectors so we are trained to recognize issues quickly and easily. Simply put, we know what to look for before it becomes a problem!

  • We perform our inspections on varying days and times instead of the same schedule every week/month. This deters criminals from learning our schedule and knowing when to strike.  

  • We are family-owned and operated so we treat your property as if it were our own taking great care of you and ensuring your investment is secure.

 

WHAT DO HOME WATCH SERVICES INCLUDE?

  • Check air conditioner 

  • Run water in all sinks, tubs, and showers

  • Flush toilets

  • Check condition of landscaping and monitor the responsibility of the property service vendor if applicable. 

  • Check for household pests and monitor the responsibility of the property service vendor if applicable.

  • Inspect interior walls and ceilings for visual mold, mildew, or water damage. 

  • Inspect exterior including sidewalks, lanais, decks, patios, siding, and garages. 

  • Check condition of pool, pool heater, and monitor the responsibility of the property service vendor if applicable. 

  • Run disposal 

  • Verify all doors and windows are locked and secured upon departure. 

 

Our Home watch Inspection summaries are sent via e-mail or fax the same day of inspection. This will not be the same day every week as we try to vary our schedules to deter criminals from learning when we arrive and depart. In the unfortunate event that there is a security problem, property damage or maintenance issue, we will contact you immediately and recommend a course of action. 

 

Our home watch inspections become active once a service agreement and first month’s payment has been received. All service plans run month to month, but may be prepaid in advance for the season.  We require a 30 day notice if you plan to terminate your service. Payments are due on the 1st day of every month that services are rendered. You will not be billed during the months that we aren’t requested to inspect your home.  Pro-rated billing is available if service agreement is signed for services beginning mid-month. The service agreement form will give you the option to pay in full or invoice monthly. Return checks are subject to a $30 fee. 

 

Our business hours are from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday EST.  There is an additional fee of $25.00 for any services rendered outside of normal working hours.  $50.00 additional for holidays.
