How to Choose the Right Home Watch Company

When it comes to selecting your home watch provider, it can be challenging to find a quality company. Our mission as a home watch and concierge services company is to not only provide you with the best possible service, but also to keep you educated and informed. 


Let’s start by talking about the types of home watch providers that exist:

*Helpful (well meaning) Neighbors 

*Hobby Home Watchers 


*Professional Home Watch Providers  


By far, you will want to choose a home watch company that is bonded and insured, and that receives regular training to update their credentials. In addition, you want to check their reviews and testimonials. Your home watch company cannot prevent disaster but their objective should be to detect irregularities quickly (leaks, broken appliances, damage to the home), inform you of them and help address them before they become a disaster. 

Regular home watch visits should be weekly (7 days) or tri monthly (10 days). You will want to check with your insurance provider to make sure the home watch company you select is a good fit. 


Some questions you may want to ask before you hire a home watch company:

*Do you have a home watch license? (If they say yes, stay away. There is currently no licensing organization for home watch). 

*Do you have insurance? Liability insurance?

*Do you have a business license?

*How do you handle emergency situations?

*How do you charge for your services?

*How do I know that you made a home visit? Is there an app or website that tracks this?

*Who will be making home watch visits?

*What training or credentials do you have?
