South Florida is a popular location for seasonal vacation homes. People from colder regions of the country like to spend their holidays here during the peak temperate season from November to May. Homeowners can be concerned with security and maintenance when their second home is unoccupied. This is where Nest Home Management has you covered. We’re a licensed and insured vacation home management company serving South Florida seasonal and permanent residents.

Home Security Tips

In all things, proper planning and preparation can save you time, stress, and money in the long term. This enables our clients to be worry-free while they’re away and focus on the joy of returning to their seasonal home. Below are some tips property owners can apply before closing their home during the off-season:

  • Set alarms prior to departure. Most alarm systems today include remote online access. Your Nest manager will work with you so that they share the same access and receive notifications. If you’re interested in learning more about alarm systems or upgrades, contact Nest Home Management!
  • Shut off the water supply and valves. This can save you money and conserve resources while the property is unoccupied. We also recommend scheduling an annual inspection to diagnose any leaks or potential problems. If you’re in need of a plumbing inspection or repair contact Nest Home Management!
  • Secure windows and doors. The best quality windows and doors for any Florida residence should be both impact resistant and security grade. These protect the property from potential storm damage during storm season as well as provide enhanced safety.
  • Install window films at windows and atrium enclosures. These not only protect your privacy, but also add style and charm without sacrificing natural light at indoor spaces. If you’re curious to learn more about window films, contact Nest Home Management!
  • Schedule regular grounds maintenance. In some cities and coastal towns, owners can be cited for overgrown lawns and foliage. Keeping the grounds well-maintained also shows that someone is present at the property, providing a safety deterrent.

Seasonal Home Emergency Response

The Nest Security Response Program provides our clients 24/7 support during the high and low season seasons. We start with a storm preparedness inspection and recommend any necessary upgrades and repairs. In the event of a storm occurrence, we keep you informed of any damages, help file insurance claims, and coordinate needed repairs. We partner with the best licensed and insured contractors and technicians in the region.
