Protecting Your Second Home: The Importance of Home Watch in San Tan Valley


San Tan Valley is a beautiful place to live with winters that make most of the country jealous. That's why San Tan Valley is so fortunate to have a large number of snowbirds who have made San Tan Valley their 2nd home. While we welcome snowbirds, only living in a home for part of the year can leave a house vulnerable to damage, bugs, and even theft.

When no one is living in a house for a long time, bad things can happen. For example, water could leak and cause mold to grow, bugs or mice could move in, or someone could break in and steal things. That's why it's important to have someone check on the house every so often.

This is where Home Watch comes in. Home Watch is a service where someone visits an unoccupied home and sends the owner reports with pictures and videos. They let the owner know if anything looks wrong or if anything needs fixing.

So why is Home Watch so valuable? Here are a few examples:

  • Let's say you have a second home in San Tan Valley, but you only live in it for part of the year. While you're away, someone breaks into your home and steals your TV, your jewelry, and your computer. If you had a Home Watch person checking on your home, they could have caught the break-in and called the police.
  • Another example is if a pipe bursts in your home while you're away, causing water damage that you don't find out about until you return. If you had a Home Watch person, they could have caught the problem early and saved you a lot of money on repairs.
  • Or if a big storm hits and your roof starts leaking. If no one is there to notice the leak, the water could cause a lot of damage and you wouldn't know about it until you returned. If you had a Home Watch person, they could have caught the leak early and saved you a lot of money on repairs.

So if you're a snowbird with a second home in San Tan Valley, make sure you have a Home Watch person checking on your house while you're away. It's a small cost that could save you a lot of money and stress in the long run. And don't forget to mark your calendar for National Home Watch Month in March 2023!

The National Home Watch Association has announced that March 2023 will be the first National Home Watch Month to raise awareness of the Home Watch service industry.
