What is a Home Watch Service?
Franklin Home Watch was established to provide area homeowners with safe and secure options for leaving their South Florida homes for weeks or even months.
Jim Franklin, the owner and founder of Franklin Home Watch, has more 30 years of experience in construction, specializing in residential projects. After hearing from dozens of clients who needed support and attention to their homes while they were away, Jim knew he could provide that service.
Who needs a home watch service?
Any homeowner who is going to be away from their home for any stretch of time can benefit from the safety, security, personalized attention and peace of mind they get when they hire Franklin Home Watch.
Franklin Home Watch is perfect for:
People who travel frequently
Income property owners (long-term rental)
Vacation property owners (available for short term rentals on Airbnb or VRBO)
Homeowners who use Franklin Home Watch are never surprised by damage to their homes due to inclement weather, vandalism or break-ins, pest infestations, or climate system malfunctions because they know that Jim Franklin and his team of licensed, bonded and insured specialists have their homes well looked after.
Living in Florida is great, but the climate can be very hard on your home and without timely checks, mold, leaks and other problems can quickly result in thousands of dollars of damage.
We all have different needs when it comes to our homes, and no two homes are alike. Let Franklin Home Watch provide you with a free consultation regarding your home and tailor a plan to meet your needs.
