Home Watch

Vacant homes need monitoring to ensure nothing has gone awry. Our homewatch and home management services are what you're looking for to give you peace of mind and take care of everything while you're away. Our unoccupied residence and property inspection services are vital for second home owners and rental property owners that are away from their properties for extended periods of time. Coast Home Watch provides protection and assurance for your property through regular onsite inspections.

Our Basic Services cover a variety of points that I'll check to make sure everything is safe and in running order. We cover the common basics, but if you have additional needs we can tailor a custom package for you. Just call or email to get a quote.

Keyholder Services

 

As needed, we can meet service vendors/contractors, accept large deliveries, alarm response, help locked out guests, check in on family members, and much more. Leaving a key with a neighbor isn't ideal as they may not be available when needed, or if you just aren't comfortable giving your neighbors that responsibility, and providing them open access to your home and possessions. Any situations requiring the use of your key will be handled in a secure and professional manner. Having CHW hold your key will allow you to manage these situations from afar.

 

Contractor/Vendor Coordination & Supervision

 

We'll meet and monitor service providers or repairmen at your home, or your senior parent's home. After 30 years of facility management I can work with any contractor or service provider and ensure the job is getting done correctly. 

Long distance home build or remodel?  We offer an affordable solution to give you piece of mind, being your eyes on the ground, monitoring while you can’t.

  • Provide access to property for contractors or service providers (repairmen, delivery, cleaning services, or other onsite service providers)

  • Monitor to confirm that contractors or service provider's work is properly completed; digital photo reporting 

 

Rental Liaison

Whether you just need someone to provide keys or you’d like a personal meet and greet, we can help. We have years of experience with AirBnB (the owner is a Super Host) and Bed and Breakfast properties since the 90's.
