Safety, security, and protection for your home or property.

What is Home Watch?

Home Watch is "a visual inspection of a home or property, looking for obvious issues."


Our 300-point inspection is a comprehensive inspection that covers all aspects of your home, both inside and out. This includes checking for things like:

  • SECURITY: Make sure that all entrances are secure, for no signs of forced entry, vandalism, or theft.

  • STORM CHECKS & COMMUNICATION: No damage from weather events, such as tree limbs down, roof leaks, flooding, or broken entry points.

  • SAFETY: Ensure that when alarms are triggered there hasn't been an entry or fire.

  • MAINTENANCE: Landscape or HVAC maintenance has been performed, roof and gutters are in good condition, siding is not damaged, fences and gates are secure.

  • UTILITIES: Water, gas, and electric are turned on or off if necessary, dock, pool and/or hot tub are properly maintained.

  • PESTS: No signs of pests, window wells are secure and pest-free.

  • STORM READINESS: Eliminate emergency travel when a hurricane or tropical storm approaches. Our home watch service will provide you with storm preparation and communication before, during, and after the storm.

  • REDUCE RISK: Safety checks reduce the risk of fires, water and wind damage, and break-ins.

  • DETER CRIME OR VANDALISM: Our home watch service can help to deter crime by making your home look occupied.

  • MAINTAINANCE: Riverland Home Studios will keep your home in good condition by performing routine maintenance tasks.

  • PEACE OF MIND: Knowing that your home is being checked on regularly can give you peace of mind while you are away.

  • CONVENIENCE: We take care of things like mail and package pickup, housesitting, and pet care, so you don't have to worry about them. Learn more about our Concierge Services here.

"RHS has been a blessing for us when we are away in New Jersey. With the unpredictable South Florida weather, having a professional team to keep watch on our home gives us a great level of comfort and peace of mind.

RHS doesn't miss a beat. They communicate with us right away and keep us informed throughout our time away. We love it!"
