Home Watch

Home Watch is defined as a visual inspection of a home or property, looking for obvious issues. Routine visits to a property can help prevent costly repairs, deter break-ins, and minimize the risk of various damage to the home. Home watch closely resembles traditional property management but without marketing rentals or offering leasing services.

Properti Home Concierge works with homeowners to create a home visit checklist unique to their home and individual needs. Then, clients enjoy peace of mind while their online Properti dashboard provides regular reporting, two way communication, home photos, and a portal for any invoicing.   

Properti Home Concierge simplifies Home Watch services into three common categories.  These include preventative maintenance, ongoing maintenance, and seasonal preparation. Upkeep in these three areas is critical to protecting the value of the property and consistency of experience in your home.

That’s why Properti clients delegate these details and maximize their time.
