Serving Sarasota, Florida Since 1979
House Watch Sarasota is licensed and insured and has been serving the Sarasota area since 1979. We have built a solid reputation of reliability, trust, discretion, and integrity, connected with the care and management of your home while you are away.
We feel the most important part of our service is getting to know and feel comfortable with each other. When you contact us, an appointment will be set to meet at your home to discuss the services we offer. This not only gives us a chance to evaluate your property and to discuss your specific needs but, to accurately price the service. Typically our basic service runs $25.00 per visit for a 3 bath home or condo based on weekly visits.
For absentee home owners, we strongly recommend a weekly house watch visit. Many things can happen in Florida, especially in the summer, if a home is not regularly checked. A problem may occur with the air conditioning and/or humidistat causing mold to grow and take over in a matter of days. Hot water heaters can burst, pool screens can be damaged during storms, damage to windows and doors can happen for various reasons, and there are always rodent or insect issues. Through weekly visits these problems can be detected and corrected before greater damage to your property happens.
There is a good reason why insurance companies offer a discount on homeowners policies for this service. Ask your insurance agent about the provisions in your policy. Insurance companies are beginning to recognize that problems caught and fixed early in the process can save them money in the long run and have begun to provide discounts to homeowners who employ a home watch service.
If we detect a problem we will take pictures and contact you immediately to discuss the situation with you. We can then, with your approval, call on vendors and suppliers to have the problem repaired. With our 30+ years in the Sarasota area doing business we have encountered fires, floods, mold, wind damage, plumbing problems, rodent problems, pool pump, pool cage, and roof problems. We have reliable and experienced vendors who can provide a written estimate for the repairs and have the job completed within a reasonable time frame.
Presently our clients have homes at Siesta Key, Palmer Ranch, The Founders Club, The Landings and Lakewood Ranch including other areas of Sarasota.
