Here in the Twin Cities, we have a harsh and variable climate. An NHWA Accredited Home Watch Service will give you peace of mind, knowing that your home is being looked after by professionals who have your best interests in mind.
Regular visits to your property can prevent or lessen property damage.
We will create a presence in your home which may deter squatters and other intruders.
We will deliver consistent and accurate information to you during your absence with top notch, industry standard digital reporting.
We will look for leaks, insect infestations, mold, and other potential issues.
For condo owners, while an HOA/POA is responsible for common grounds and common areas, you are responsible for everything from the “studs in.” Problems in an overhead unit can create major damage to the unit below. Common pipes in common walls are also notorious for causing problems to multiple units. Snowy Owl Home Watch will discover and work to resolve any issues prior to your return.
We can act as your liaison between contractors, associations, Realtors, and virtually anyone that you authorize us to, including key-ins and/or being present while work is done.
We can make arrangements for work to be done in your absence, leaving you to do what you wish once you return.
We will do post-storm checks for rain, hail, power outages and tree damage.
We will make sure your home is properly maintained in your absence and act as your advocate.
We will discover and resolve small issues before they become big issues.
We will give you peace of mind.
Note: Snowy Owl Home Watch Service is NOT a house sitter. No one will be staying
in your home and Snowy Owl Home Watch does not offer pet sitting services.
