Many people understandably ask their friends, family or neighbors to "keep an eye" on their house or "house sit" their home while they are away. But there are many reasons why this can be bad for your home, and bad for your relationship.   


  • What if a small problem is overlooked and becomes a big problem?

  • Do you want to burden your friendly relationships with the time, stress or responsibility that comes with watching your home while you are away having fun? 

  • Do they enjoy meeting service providers and overseeing any work that needs to be done to your home?

  • Everyone has their own commitments and in hectic times like during ice, snow, rain and wind storms your house could be forgotten or ignored.

  • Do you want to share access to your private things?

  • Are these house sitters licensed, practiced, insured and bonded?

  • Do they have trusted home professional resources to help you tackle any issues that arise?

  • Can you trust them not to entertain in your home? 

  • Don't you want the peace of mind that everything in your home is in excellent working order, in its place, exactly the way you left it?

  • House sitters or neighbors will not complete "to do" task lists while you are away, but a property manager will finish small handyman projects so you return home to a house with these tasks completed.
