Why Do I Need HomeWatch?

South Florida has an impressive and formidable collection of private estate communities with many seasonal residents.

This is an extremely popular lifestyle choice for retirees and semi-retired people who enjoy the seasonal changes of their northern residences in the spring, summer and fall months and the ideal South Florida climate in the winter.

These people, affectionately known as “snowbirds” make the annual trek to South Florida around Thanksgiving and return to their northern enclaves sometime after Passover or Easter.

It is reassuring to many to know that someone will “keep an eye” on their home while they are away. Many people arrange to have someone perform weekly HomeWatch visits. This is an inexpensive “insurance policy”. However, special care should be taken when choosing a service provider to be sure that the person or company has a reputable background, and has been adequately trained in home inspections of this nature.With our HomeWatch service, the homeowner contracts to have their house inspected in their absence to ensure that there are no signs of leaks, insect or pest problems, security system alerts, or other visible maintenance needs. A complete interior and exterior inspection of the home is conducted with close attention paid to proper operation of the mechanical systems including air conditioning, pool and spa equipment, and plumbing and electrical systems.

When repairs or maintenance are needed, homeowners can then use the management company’s preferred vendors. When using preferred vendors, the homeowner may rest assured that the vendor is licensed, bonded and properly insured. The quality of the workmanship and timeliness of completion will also be guaranteed.

In summary, the use of a qualified, competent home management company can grant you the peace-of-mind that comes from knowing your home is well cared-for… when you’re away… and when you’re not.

We always strive to provide complete customer satisfaction.
To achieve this we make ourselves available to our customers
24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year round.
