Top 2 Reasons to Consider Hiring a Home Watch Service

Regardless as to whether you’ve just purchased a SWFL vacation home, or you’re a year-round resident who wants some added peace of mind when you’re out of town, there are numerous benefits associated with hiring a home watch service. For this post, we wanted to highlight the top 3.

You’ll have eyes and ears on the ground

Can you ask your neighbors to pick up the junk mail on your porch, and clear wayward newspapers from your lawn? Of course you can. But if you’re home isn’t inspected regularly in your absence; you could arrive home to an unfortunate surprise.

“A few years ago we were traveling abroad and while I’d asked someone to make sure that the mailbox and porch were cleared off, it never occurred to me that I’d need someone to keep an eye on the inside of my home,” one homeowner said. “Not only did the hot water heater fail while we were gone, it flooded the laundry room. It was a mess, and it was very expensive to repair.”

When you hire a home watch service, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your home is being monitored from all angles. If we discover there’s a problem with your swimming pool, roof, flooring, electrical system or if we stumble upon a leak, we’ll notify you immediately.
