Are you heading out of SW Florida this Winter or Summer?

Are you going on an extended vacation any time soon?

Leaving a home for extended periods of time can be fun. What’s not so fun, however, is returning home to a sink that’s been leaking for three months. When a home is sitting vacant, the possibility of problems is always present. What makes things serious though, is when there is no one around to catch them when they do happen.

Our Professional Home Watch Services are the perfect replacement/stand-in for snowbirds/absent property owners while you are away. Our routine 30-point inspection can catch any problems when and if they arise. To add to your peace of mind while you are away, we can also make sure that your hired services are being performed, check on your home after a serious storm, or even meet a delivery person at the door. Our services are usually classified as property management but we add the personal touch.

You can choose the frequency of visits that Home Away From Home makes to your residence: weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. Besides our basic 30-point inspection, you may also customize your personal home watch plan with additional items all you have to do is ask we can agree a price for the service and add it to your contract.
