Our Home Check Reporting
Prestige Home Watch uses the HomeWatchIT reporting system. We are able to set up a checklist customized to your home and preferences that we use at each visit. Using this system, we are able to provide you a report that is GPS based and timestamped so you know when we checked. Additionally our report will provide pictures of anything we find that requires your attention. Please review the video for more information.
There will be times when you need the added touch to complete the management of your home while you are away.
