       So, 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 do?


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 perimeter sweep. 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. We check that your alarm system, smoke detectors, and filters are all still working. 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 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.  

        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 house? If not, a home watch inspection service may be for you. 

Property management companies deal directly with rental prospects and tenants, marketing rentals, collecting rent, handling maintenance and repair issues, responding to tenant complaints, and pursuing evictions. 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. If you're not selling your home, a home watch inspection service may be for you.


Happy Home Watch of Sarasota will be happily here for you and your home when you can't.


If you're away from your Florida home the unknown is that little worred voice in the back of your brain. Is the a.c. working? Is there a leak in the roof? Has anyone broken in? Is my house ok after the storm?
