What exactly is a home watch inspection?
Home Watch is a service that performs visual inspections of a home or property, looking for obvious issues. It's also known as a home check or property check.
What does a home watch inspection entail?
First, we do an outside perimeter sweep. We look at the roofline the whole way, making sure there are no obvious issues. We check the security of all your doors and windows. Are your yard and pool company doing a good job? Happy Home Watch of Sarasota will let you know!
Next, we do an inside inspection of your home. First we check that the a.c. and humidity are both at acceptable levels. Your a.c. not working properly is one of the scariest things that can happen in Florida. Mold and water damage are the two biggest claims here. One of the big things Happy Home Watch does is to turn on the water when we get there. This allows us to flush the toilets and run all of the faucets, keeping drains from drying up and bugs from moving in. Speaking of bugs, we look for signs of rodent and insect infestation. When we leave the water gets turned back off to help prevent water damage if there is a break. We'll check your mail, water your plants, and whatever else your home needs to be a "happy home."
What isn't a home watch inspection?
When people go out of town, they may think it's time for a house sitter. A house sitter stays in the home, with all that might entail. While this might be the way to go for some, do you want someone else living in your home, sleeping in your bed, with access to all of your things? If not, a home watch inspection service may be for you.
Property management companies deal directly with rental prospects and tenants and the main difference is money collection. If you need someone to help you rent out your house, you may want to look into property management. If you go out of town and need your house looked after, a home watch inspection service may be for you.
Home inspections are generally done when a home is for sale to give the buyer a full look at the health of the home. If you're not selling your home, a home watch inspection service may be for you.
If you're away from your Florida home the unknown is that little worried voice in the back of your brain. Is the air conditioning working? Is that spot in the corner of the ceiling a leak in the roof? Has someone broken in? Is my house ok after the storm?
What undiscovered damage could be waiting for you to get home, getting worse all the while?

Happy Home Watch of Sarasota currently serves Sarasota from Fruitville Rd. (out to Tuttle) and down through Gulf Gate (out to Beneva) as well as Siesta Key. Downtown and Siesta Key are the two main service areas. We do not serve Lido or Longboat Key (unless it is a larger group of clients, such as a condo building with more than 10 units signed). Lakewood Ranch, Casey Key, Osprey, Nokomis, and Venice are outside of the service area. The reason for such a small service area is simple: If there's an emergency, Happy Home Watch of Sarasota needs to be able to get to your home quickly! Every decision made is to ensure the best possible service to you, the client.
