What is a Home Watch service?

Home watch is a service for absentee homeowners, which provides a periodic visual inspection of your home and property in order to discover and report potential issues that can arise while you are away.

Why do I need a Home Watch service?

Actually, the question is, how can you not have one? 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 pro-active 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.

What if I have a situation at my home?

The Home Watch professionals’ experience and judgment will allow them to handle any situation with a calculated response. If the situation is an emergency, it will be handled in the fastest, safest, and most cost-effective way. In a non-emergency situation, you will be contacted to discuss and implement a course of action.

Is a Home Watch service a security service?

Not as a rule; however, having a visible presence in your empty home may act as a crime deterrent.
