A Home Watch Checklist Tailored to Your Needs

Here’s how our home watch service works: We discuss your home and create a detailed checklist report during each visit. The checklist highlights everything we did/inspected at your property along with the date and time we were there. We complete our checklist reports electronically through the QRIDit Home Watch software system, which tracks home watch inspectors via GPS and automatically posts a report to your account. We will also provide photos of any issues we find, such as water damage, vandalism, etc. You’ll never be left wondering whether someone was actually at your home—simply log in to our website 24/7 to view inspection reports of your home.

Here’s an example of our home inspection checklist (you’ll indicate which items you need done each time from the following list):

Why hire a house sitter while you’re away?

Security
Burglars, vandals, and squatters routinely patrol neighborhoods looking for vacant or unoccupied homes. A home guard can deter intruders simply by being there, turning lights on, and giving your home a “lived in” look.

Monitoring
If a pipe bursts or the roof leaks while you’re gone, you could come home to a disastrous and expensive mess. We monitor your home to ensure that your systems are running properly and your home is secure. It’s easy to overlook just how much goes into maintaining a home—from watering plants to putting out the garbage to temperature control. Our house sitters can handle all of these routine but important tasks while you’re gone.  

Communication
As part of our home watch services, we’ll post an inspection checklist to your account after every visit highlighting what we did and any issues we found, and we’ll provide you with photos of any problems we find. At your discretion, we can mitigate any major problems we find, such as plumbing leaks, roof leaks, gas leaks, or issues with your air conditioning/heating system. Watch this video to learn about the technology we use to send you updates about your home.

Peace of Mind
Perhaps the most important aspect of home guard services is the peace of mind it provides. Whether you’re away on business, vacation, or taking care of personal or family matters, the last thing you want to worry about is whether your home is secure. Our service lets you focus on your priorities.
