I'm continuously amazed by the shear number of seasonal people that don't want to have insurance to protect their seasonal home. I'm not talking about the home owner's insurance policies, I'm talking about professional Home Watch services. Basically the insurance for your home owner's insurance.
Most people do not know that if an issue happens in a vacant home and more than 14 days go by unreported, the insurance company may deny your claim. These claims can be $20K or more for water and mold damage. So for as little as $80 to $100 per month you can have a professional watching your home and protecting your pocket book. Don't spend less than that on a guy doing it on the side, not worth the savings.
I document all of my home watch visits both with text and pictures so any issue can have proof of the house being watched and cared for. So far in the last month I have visited homes where the TV's turned themselves ON, Fans ON, lights ON, refrigerators OFF, Pools OFF, smoke detector circuit breakers OFF, air conditioners shut down, trees uprooted, bushes uprooted. This is just in the last 30 days of this summer. These are people that have cameras, WIFI systems thinking they will know what happens to their home when they are away.
So how wise is it not to have Home Watch? Contact Gulf Coast Area Home Watch in the greater Fiddler's Creek area.
