SHORELINE

Home Watch and Property Management

Home Watch Services

We provide absentee owners with weekly inspections of your property to ensure it is safe and well maintained. We thoroughly check the interior and exterior of your home and perform routine maintenance, and after the inspection, we email you a detailed Client Report.

In addition, we can prepare your home for your arrival and secure it after your departure. We are available on short notice to prepare your home in the event of an approaching storm, as well as do an inspection after the storm. Our goal is to be your eyes and ears so you can relax, knowing that your property is secure and well cared for.
