Absentee Home Watch
Home Watch is defined by “A Visual Inspection of a Home or Property Looking for Obvious Issues”
We are a premier property management company and our services are contracted based on what you, the homeowner, need for your particular property. Our professional home management team takes managing your property serious. Our residential property management processes are detailed oriented and among the highest quality in the industry.
All properties vary greatly in their overall needs. For instance, a 3 bedroom condominium is not as demanding as a 3 bedroom single family home would be. A 3 bedroom home in Desert Mountain is going to potentially be more involved than a 3 bedroom condo in Old Town Scottsdale area. So, what we have determined to be the basis for our pricing structure on 3 key factors:
We are not your ordinary drop in take a 2 min look and walk out sort of operation. True home care and inspections take time and energy to perform. We take as much pride in your home as you do and expect nothing short of the very best when caring for it.
The actual time spent performing the inspection is only part of our time involved in taking care of your property. There are follow up calls to providers for concerns or issues. There is time involved in producing our detailed reports. Time involved in scheduling, accounting and producing monthly statements to be emailed. So there is much more to the process than simply ‘meandering’ through your property.
The basis of our pricing structure is divided between condominiums and single family homes. We base the pricing scale for condos on the number of bedrooms. We base the pricing scale for single family homes on total square footage of the home which directly correlates with the amount of time it will take to perform each inspection.
