When it comes to your home being looked after in your absence, would you trust just anyone? Home watch is a major undertaking that requires experience and education to make sure it’s done right so you come back to your home in the same condition in which you left it. As a nationally certified home watch service with the National Home Watch Association (NHWA), here are the benefits of us looking after your property versus the other guys or even a family friend.
1. Our standards are very high. This is our business and our life’s work. We would never compromise our livelihood by doing anything less than a stellar job when it comes to watching over your home while you’re away. The National Home Watch Association has been setting the gold standard in the home watch industry since 2009. Before we could be nationally certified by them, we had to go through a background check, interview process and show credentials for our business (among other requirements). We also go through training and continuing education classes on a consistent basis.
2. We are insured and bonded. This is to protect both our company and you, our client. Being properly insured and bonded is a requirement to be accepted into national certification because our clients’ best interests should always be front and center. Don’t hesitate to ask us for proof of insurance and bonding; we are happy to show you our paperwork for your peace of mind.
3. We are regulated. Unfortunately, the home watch industry is largely unregulated as a whole. That means that anybody can start a home watch business, which can also mean that the person looking after your home doesn’t have quite the experience and knowledge that they claim. Are you willing to take the risk? To maintain our national certification with the NHWA, we have to continue to educate ourselves on best practices, maintain proper insurance, and be open to any additional vetting process at any time.
