Caretaker or Home Watch Service

Caretaking or caretaker service is just another way to say home watch.  It is not house sitting. 

Home watch is defined as a visual inspection of a home or property, looking for obvious issues by the National Home Watch Association.

If you need a home watch service visit Roe Property Services, LLC.

Why might you need a caretaker?

A home watch service can respond to specific requests to meet service people (painters, contractors, cable technician), sign for and secure deliveries at the property or just do periodic or post storm property checks to make sure weather has not caused damage. 

When the power goes out during a storm or due to a nearby traffic accident they can reboot modems and reset security systems.

Roe Property Services offers home watch service in the Lake Wallenpaupack area of Wayne & Pike counties.

They can also let you know if your snow contractor has clear the drive and recommend specialized contractors when necessary.  

Roe Property Services works with local real estate and leasing agents, as well as private owners of Airbnb and Vrbo rentals to provide caretaker service, primarily during the winter months.
