Home Services for Seasonal Homeowners

Our standard home inspection package addresses all the common issues associated with an unattended property and may be scheduled on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis.  Additional inspection points may be included based on the specifics of a property at no extra charge.  A written report with supporting photos is forwarded to homeowners after each visit.

Our ‘zInspector’ reporting software is also GPS enabled and will indicate the exact time and geo-coordinates when the inspection was conducted and photos were taken.  It also allows us to create customized checklists to cater to your exact needs and property.  This checklist can be adjusted at any time since we understand that certain needs may arise from time to time.

Our HomeWatch checklist ensures that our services are built around our customers’ needs. The typical home watch service will include the following checks:

  • Conduct a thorough visual inspection of the property exterior and interior
  • Ensure integrity of doors, locks, and windows, and check for evidence of intrusion or vandalism to structure and grounds
  • Verify exterior security lighting is functional
  • Ensure security system is functional if present
  • Empty mailbox, collect other mailings/papers in driveway or front door and secure indoors
  • Verify proper function of HVAC system, and check for humidity-related issues
  • Perform seasonal adjustment of HVAC settings per homeowners instructions
  • Change A/C filter
  • Verify refrigerator, freezer and hot water heater function
  • Check for roof, window and plumbing leaks, operate the garbage disposal, run faucets, and flush toilets

Not interested in a full home watch package? We can also conduct periodic exterior visual inspections only.  We will visit your single family property, check on the condition of the home, report on any damage, check on the patio and pool, check on the status of the yard and landscape, and any other specific item of homeowner interest. As with the standard home watch service, we will forward a GPS-tagged report with accompanying photographs. This service can be provided on a recurring basis, or one-time only if a homeowner wants to check on the condition of their property following a storm or other natural disaster.

Individualized, personal packages can be formulated to meet any budget or specific need. Please contact us to discuss your exact requirements or have us visit your property for a tailored quote.
