Our popular Home Watch Program is the solution to what second- home owners have been asking for. “Can you help me take care of it?” Now, we can. This flexible program allows out-of-state owners to have eyes on their house when they aren’t up. It is our goal to keep your home safe and in good condition so that you are able to spend your vacation time enjoying your house with family, rather than fixing it. Clients choose the frequency of our home inspections to best meet their needs, most prefer to have us check their property on a bi-weekly basis.
“The Home Watch services are absolutely indispensable. We have such peace of mind knowing that our home is being looked after when we’re not there. While it’s been incredibly convenient having Peak Properties available on request to meet the occasional delivery company, contractor/tradesman or exterminator, the real benefit has been that regularly scheduled check-ins have prevented serious problems in our home. This past Fall a regular house check identified a leak in one of our sprinkler heads that would have caused major water damage had it not been spotted early on. Peak Properties of Maine had a plumber to our house immediately, and coordinated our rug being dried before our arrival for the weekend. We are so incredibly thankful to have such a reliable, thorough partner in the upkeep of our home.”
Our inspections include both interior and exterior monitoring of your home including visual and drone check of the roof, gutters, and flashing on the exterior. Interior items include running the dishwasher and washing machine to prevent the seals from drying out, checking all windows and doors for security for signs of attempted vandalism for signs of wear and tear, monitoring fuel levels and thermostat settings, and more (also any specific requests that are requested by the owner).
Other services offered by Home Watch include seasonal decorating, Whole Foods Shopping in advance of your visit, security system contact person, point of access to the property for contractors or service providers as needed.
“Peak Properties of Maine’s grocery shopping services are the BEST! Our drives north on Friday evenings during ski season have been made so much easier. We’re always a big group, and instead of lugging coolers of food from home, Peak Properties picks up our grocery list ahead of time, and we arrive fully provisioned. Not to mention, the fridge and cupboards are always meticulously stocked and maintained: outdated items disposed of, perishables organized by “use by” date, and everything organized so it’s easy to find.”
