What is Home Watch?
Home Watch is “a visual inspection of a home or property, looking for obvious issues.”
Home Watch is called many names: property watch, property check, home check, house check, neighborhood watch, lake home check, town home check, etc. We are not house sitters.
Why do I need Home Watch?
Minnesotans are active people who like to maximize their lives. Whether escaping winter, off on an adventure, up to the lake, or gone for work, people are always on the move. Unfortunately, we also know the weather and environment around us is constantly changing. The outside is always trying to get in.
Key considerations are break-ins, squatters, water leaks, electrical problems, insects, animals, mold, and storms, to name a few. 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. When the unexpected happens, we are your “boots on the ground”.
Preventive maintenance and preparation can help many problems from arising. But the elephant in the room is you live in Minnesota. The truth is, despite our best intentions, we have limited control of the outside coming in. Property issues should be handled as soon as possible to minimize damage. If ignored, these simple problems can cost thousands and thousands of dollars the longer they are left unaddressed.
