Our home watch services the Bonita Springs, Naples, & Fort Myers areas of residential single family home and condominium properties. Our priority is to first and foremost provide our clients with exceptional home watch services.

Basic Home Watch Services

  • Visual inspection throughout property including lanai and garage.

Have A Game-Plan: A vacant home is a vulnerable home and it’s important to stack the deck in your favor. The more preventative measures taken to prep your home for when you’re away, the less chance there is for something to go wrong. Along with preparation, it’s important to have a game-plan for when you’re away. A crucial part of that game-plan is to have a homewatch professional such as Riddle Services conduct regular visits of your vacant home and provide you with a report of their findings each visit.

Electronic Reports: A detailed Homewatch Inspection Report is completed during each inspection displaying the condition of your property along with the date and time the inspection was completed. You no longer need to guess if someone was actually at your home or not… the system we use, we keep you updated at all times. So you will know that an inspector was actually at your property.
