02 Mar Top 3 Reasons to Hire a Home watch Service
Whether you’re a full-time SWFL resident or you fancy yourself more of a snowbird, you understand that your home is among your most valuable assets. You also likely understand the importance of having someone check in on your home when you’re gone for extended periods of time.
Asking your friends or neighbors to pop in once is one thing—asking them to stop by regularly for several weeks (or months) at a time is another. Home watch services offer a professional solution to this problem.
Below are just a few of the ways you can benefit from home watch.
You’ll be able to address small problems before they have a chance to get out of hand
There are any number of things that can go wrong in your home during your absence. When you hire a home watch professional, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing an experienced, reputable service provider is helping to look after your asset when you’re not around. If a problem is detected, you’ll be alerted right away. If a handyman or repairman needs to be called, the home watch service will schedule the appointment. They’ll also make sure that someone is at your property while the work is being performed, and everything is locked up and secured when the work is done.
Homes that look lived in are less likely to be targeted by burglars
Burglars are opportunists who are far more likely to target a vacant property than a home that looks like it’s lived in. When you work with a home watch service you can rest assured that junk mail will be disposed of, your porch plants will be watered and that your outdoor motion lighting is functioning properly.
It’s nice to come home to find food in the fridge
Whether you’re driving in from Georgia or flying in from New York, no one likes coming home to an empty refrigerator. If you’ve been gone for an extended period of time, there’s a pretty good chance that your pantry is bare. A home watch service can help alleviate this problem, because they can help with some light grocery shopping in advance of your return. Having coffee, milk, sugar and eggs on hand, when you get back, can make all the difference.
