Why do I need to pay someone to watch my property when my neighbor is willing to check on things while I am away?

You do not have to, unless you want the Peace of Mind knowing that your home is being looked after by a Trained, Certified, Insured and Bonded Professional. Here’s the question that you have to ask yourself? Am I willing to ask my friend, neighbor or relative to pay for damages, IF they are negligent in their home watch duties? The average cost to remediate and repair small damage is as low as $500 to $6,000 on average-but the price can go up into the tens of thousands of dollars if the problem is severe.
