If you have a vacation home, you probably won’t be able to spend as much time there as you’d like. This leads to questions about maintenance and keeping the home in excellent condition for the next time you need a breather from the daily grind. Thankfully, home management companies, like Gardens Home Management Services, are there to provide you with peace of mind. Here are 5 questions to ask when hiring a home management company for a second home.

  1. How often will they check in on my property?

This varies – and will also depend on your needs and preferences. However, weekly checks are the most common in Southern Florida.


  1. Do they offer security services?

Usually, when you are away from your second home, your biggest concern will be whether your property and belongings are safe in your absence. Because of this, security services, including emergency responses, are a must.


  1. Will they also look after my garden?

There is nothing relaxing about going on vacation and being greeted with an unkempt lawn and dead flowers. Therefore landscaping services are always a good idea.


  1. Do they offer pest control?

Pest infestations can often occur without warning – so it helps to know that if something like that happens, there are experts on hand who will be able to take care of it before it becomes a problem.


  1. Are they willing to customize their services according to my needs?

What if you want them to visit your property more regularly than advertised? What if you want landscaping services but don’t feel that paying for specialized interior home care services are necessary now? It is important that the home management company which you hire is willing to tailor their offering to give you the peace of mind that you deserve.
