Don and I decided to do housewatch services for Palm Creek residents this summer. We've watched over houses for friends in the past but this year we decided to branch out and do this on a larger scale. It will give us something constructive to do together during the hot summer months and has already proved worthy just because of the new people we've met. Here are the services we offer:
MONTHLY PROGRAMS AND PRICES:
PLAN A: $20 per month. Includes once monthly inspection inside and out. Flush toilets, run water to be certain all traps are clear and contain water. Dump and refill buckets if you request. Be certain air conditioning is working as required. Change air filters if requested. Will email results to you monthly. PLUS: Additional outside inspection after every major storm.
PLAN B: $30 per month. Includes two monthly inspections inside and out as described in Plan A.
PLAN C: $10 per month. Do monthly outside inspection only …. Plus after every major storm.
PLAN D: $45 per month. Weekly inspection plus blow off driveway and patio monthly.
SPRINKLER SYSTEMS: For an additional $10, we will check to be sure your sprinkler system is running on schedule. This fee is requested because it requires being on site at a specific time. We will call you to discuss options for repair if needed.
ONE TIME PRIOR TO RETURN: $25 Notify us a week before you return and we will blow off or sweep your driveway/patio and sweep away cobwebs. (This is not a thorough cleaning for windows or dove pooh but will certainly make your return more welcoming.)
PAYMENT: Payment is due in advance before you leave for the season. Appropriate refunds will be given if you return earlier than expected. If your return is delayed, we will invoice you upon your return.
We will have a form for you to complete before your departure so we have all pertinent information. We are formally registered at the Guest Services office as well.
Please spread the word among your neighbors and help us "advertise". If you're interested or have questions, call the house at 7707 or Don's cell phone at 937-408-5221.
I'll be working on this blog as well this summer and have some fun ideas for adding a picture album. I love hearing comments from readers who say they appreciate the blog and enjoy the articles. I must run now and get ready for another Happy Hour. Till next time...........
