Home Watch is known by many names: house watch, house check, home concierge, caretaker, absentee home service, property watch, and so on. Regardless of the name, a Home Watch service performs scheduled inspections of “vacant” properties while the owner is away. The National Home Watch Association describes Home Watch as “a visual inspection of a home or property looking for obvious issues.”
These inspections include a basic check of plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems, as well as the overall condition of the home and property. Home Watch inspectors look at the house or condominium with a trained eye, making sure that everything is satisfactory. They look for leaks, pests and mold, all of which can be present in homes left alone for even the shortest interval.
Should the inspector find an issue or potential problem, they will immediately notify the homeowner. From there, the issue can be resolved by either the Home Watch service itself, or the homeowner will instruct the Home Watch service on how they want to proceed. By removing junk mail and flyers and creating a presence in the home, Home Watch adds a level of security to the vacant home. Home Watch is the line of communication to the homeowner that provides peace of mind during their absence.

Joe Fix-It did a great job on fixing our toilet. He managed to do the repair in an hour. We tried numerous times ourselves to fix it but it was Joe that got it done. Also he did the repair in a cleanly and expeditious manner. Thanks Joe! We will spread the word of your numerous handyman skills! We will call again for other things that may require your talents.
