Home Watch Program
The process begins with meeting you at your home to learn about your individual requirements and to understand how best we can tailor our services to your needs.  We want to provide the services necessary to give you peace of mind that your home will be properly cared for while you're away.  We conduct regularly scheduled visits following your departure.  These visits include a walk-through of your property, both inside and out.  Each inspection will include the following 34-point review of your home:

After each inspection we email you a report on your home's condition which includes the date and time of the inspection, as well as the outside and indoor temperatures while we were at your home.  Should we have severe weather conditions here in the Coachella Valley (i.e., heavy rains, flash floods, lightening storms) as well as severe earthquakes or known electrical outages, we will inspect your property for damage and report back to you.  Our goal is to give you peace of mind at all times.
