Protect Your Property With Vacant Home Management ServicesReading Time: 2 minutes
Seasonal homes come with so many great benefits. At the same, they can also present some challenges when left vacant. Unwelcome visitors on your property, as well as bad spouts of weather, can both wreak havoc when you’re not around. This is where a vacant property management service becomes invaluable. Here’s how a home management company can help protect your vacant seasonal home when you need it most.
Handy Home Watch Services
Unoccupied seasonal homes can be targets for robbers. Homes that don’t have good security, have low levels of external lighting, or that contain visible valuables, are all potential targets. If your home looks vacant and empty, chances are that it’s an easy vandalism target. A home watch service can offer the protection that your home needs by deterring attention away from your seasonal home. A home management company will help to perform weekly or bi-weekly checks around the interior and exterior of your property. Their services may include:
- Turning the water heater off
- Closing shutters
- Covering outside furniture
- Maintaining your pool
- Watering Plants
- Collecting mail
- Connecting chargers to your cars
All of these services help your property to look occupied. A home watch service acts like a pair of eyes that watches and checks on your property regularly. A reputable company will even respond when your home alarm is triggered.
