HouseCheck Florida

Manatee County's Trusted, Affordable Way to Have Your Property Looked After While You're Away

What is a House Checking Service?

A house checking service (or house watching service) is when our trusted and trained professional periodically visits and inspects a property that is currently vacant (a second home, for example). They thoroughly document and photography the property condition and alert the owners of any issues (before they become a problem).

Inspect Your Home Inside and Out

We conduct a thorough home check that involves 40 different tasks, ensuring that nothing gets missed and any issues are immediately identified.

Perform General Property Maintenance

Bring in your mail, water plants, adjust thermostat settings, start your vehicles, and many more basic services.

Report and Document Property Condition

We always email you with the completed home checklist as well as digital photographs.  You can access these reports 24/7 anywhere in the world so you can rest easy.

Help You Resolve Any Issues

If we do uncover any issues we can work with you to get them fixed (pests, leaks, structural damage, etc.).  No need to make emergency trips down to your Florida home.

Prepare for Your Return

When you're ready to come back to your Florida house we'll do any tasks you need so your house is move-in ready.

We do NOT live in your home

Unlike a house sitting service, we only visit the home at scheduled times to perform our inspections (and then leave the house as it was).

What are the Benefits of a House Checking Service?

Protect Your Valuable Florida Home

Taking a chance that nothing will go wrong while you are away can easily turn into a costly mistake.  A little prevention goes a long way.

Save On Homeowners Insurance

Many Florida homeowners insurance companies require that your home is not vacant more than 15 consecutive days.  Otherwise, a water leak (or worse) may not be covered by your homeowners insurance.  We provide verifiable proof that we checked your home so that your insurance policy remains in good standing.

Breathe Easy!

No worries, no hassles, no problems.  Enjoy your time away from your Florida home and let us take care of your house.  We'll always keep you informed.
