HOME WATCH SERVICES

Our home watch services are tailored for homeowners who are full-time residences and vacationing or absentee second homeowners. We will customize a comprehensive home management plan that will meet your individual needs. Our weekly property inspections ensure your home is secure and operating efficiently. Rest easy knowing that your investment is in good hands. Some of the great services we offer as part of our Estate Caretaking Plan include:

  • Check security systems
  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Thermostat controls
  • Door windows and locks
  • Roofing
  • Gutters
  • Evidence of entry
  • Storm damage

The primary purpose of a home watch service is to inspect a house, condo, or estate on behalf of its absentee owner; looking for existing problems or any issues that could become problems if not addressed promptly. We visit your property on the frequency you’ve selected (once, twice, or four times per month) and perform a very thorough inspection of the exterior and interior. Ours is one of the most extensive checklists in the industry, covering numerous exterior conditions, interior conditions, kitchen and bathroom fixtures and appliances, mechanical and energy systems, pools, spas, and the garage. At the completion of a watch inspection, the checklist is emailed to you along with an arrival photo and additional photos of conditions deemed problematic or noteworthy. You’re notified immediately by phone if a serious problem is found and/or an immediate repair is required.

From detecting water leaks, damage from animals or rodents, storm damage, forced entry, and heating and cooling issues, Peak Property Management can minimize the damage that may occur while your home is unattended. Any areas of concern that we notice during our scheduled visits will be brought to your attention immediately and can be repaired according to your wishes. When you return to your home, it will ready for you to enjoy instead of leaving you with a list of surprises to work on when you arrive. Peak Property Management will be your eyes and ears while you are away. The experience we have in homeownership along with our background in landscaping, snow removal, plumbing, electrical, and heating and cooling, has equipped us with the ability to be very observant of clients’ homes and properties while providing excellent customer service.
