What are your prices?

Prices for our Home Watch Visits are based on multiple factors. The square footage of the property, the homes amenities, time it will take to complete our visits, and any additional services you need.

Additional services are charged at an hourly rate for the time it takes to complete the given task.

Are Your Services Expensive?

Our services are reasonably priced for the value we provide. When you compare the possible damage due to a leak or damage by pests or vagrants with the cost, our services are an excellent value. We will be happy to discuss our pricing for home watch and concierge services during a free consultation.

What type of reporting can I expect from you?

We’ll send you a detailed report tailored to your home by email with pictures of any problems identified upon completion of inspecting the interior and exterior of your home.

We have a neighborhood watch program. Doesn’t that do the same thing?

Most neighborhood watch programs are passive by nature. They do not provide the level of engagement with your property that Kinsman Home Watch provides. We will check your property’s interior and exterior in far more detail than you can expect from a neighborhood watch program.

If you find a problem what type of notification will I receive?

Any problems identified will be be in our visit report. It will be accompanied by pictures and details of the problem. If we take any immediate action to prevent further damage we will contact you immediately to discuss what occurred and consider what course of action is needed for the repair.

Are you a property inspector?

While we check your property, we are not what is defined as a property inspector. Property inspectors are usually involved at the sale of a property to do a detailed inspection of the structure, plumbing, electrical and heating and air condition systems.

Are You A House Sitting Service?

We are not a house sitter. Our core service includes periodic visits to your home where we follow a specific and mutually agreed upon checklist. We are in your home on a weekly or bi-weekly basis and take great pride in making sure your home is as you left it.

An alarm company provides security for my home. What value do You Offer?

An alarm company monitors entry into your home or a fire alarm. They do not monitor potential problems that can occur due to weather damage, broken pipes, mold, pests or vagrants nor do they run your mechanical systems to ensure proper operation. As a value-added service, we can also act as the local point of contact for your alarm company and respond as the need arises.
