Home Watch Services

Albanese Property Inspections specializes in the care and security of vacation and second homes while the homeowner is away. A home watch service is designed to give the absentee homeowner peace of mind knowing their home is being properly looked after while they are away. As a certified home inspector we are trained to pay close attention to detail so that we can anticipate problems before they happen. We will visually inspect the home or property looking for any obvious safety issues or potential problems. We will design a unique checklist based on your individual needs and concerns. If a situation does arise, you will be immediately notified so that the problem can be dealt with in the most efficient and cost-effect way possible.

  1. Unique personalized checklist

  2. Weekly or monthly walk through options available

  3. Optional yearly Certified Home Inspection and report included with one of our premium packages
