For our 25th wedding anniversary, we planned a bucket-list trip on a South Seas cruise. Our month-long adventure was carefree, knowing that Homesure house sitting was checking in on our home.
“Wintering in Arizona has always been our dream. After a couple of bad storms and unfortunate incidents, we realized the importance of reliable vacant home care services. The professionals at Homesure provide security; we know that our house is in good hands.”
“We love our winter retreat. It’s our haven every year from November to May. We used to worry about leaving our home in the city empty, but with Homesure on duty, we can truly relax and enjoy happy family moments.”
My property is an investment as much as it is my home base and comfort zone. Count on the professional house sitters at Homesure to look after it in my absence – they give me the confidence I need to focus on my business.
It’s also one of the most significant purchases you will ever make. You protect that investment with maintenance, stylish décor, landscaping, smart upgrades and, of course, insurance. But who looks after your property while you’re on vacation or travelling?
Trust Homesure to provide the peace of mind that we will take care of your vacant home as if it were our own.
Are you aware of your insurance policy’s Vacancy Clause? Do you know that your coverage can lapse if your home is empty beyond that stipulated length of time?
Far too many people learn – one disaster too late – that losses incurred while a house is considered vacant are not eligible for reimbursement. The onus lies with you, the policyholder, to prove that your home has been monitored, visited and checked by a qualified professional during any significant absence.
Don’t return from an extended vacation, business trip or even extra-long weekend to devastating surprises. Arrange for housesitting or the trusted, reliable professional vacant home services of Homesure before you leave.
Travel with peace of mind knowing the Homesure can help minimize risks and understands insurance requirements to ensure your home insurance while you are away.
A vacant home is a magnet for criminals. Nothing signals opportunity more than empty driveways, dark windows, piled-up newspapers, overflowing mailboxes and uncut grass. One undisturbed snowfall is a welcome cue for a burglar.
Deter crime with upkeep from Homesure.
The effects of heavy rain, high winds, snow and ice storms can be calamitous to your property. Unnoticed and unchecked exterior damage like fallen branches, water penetration, loosened shingles and weighty ice will lead to extensive interior damage as well.
Homesure will check on your home and address the impact of Mother Nature.
Homeowners are responsible for the upkeep of their property, including snow removal from sidewalks within 24 hours of a snowfall. The liability against a slip-and-fall claim levied against any perceived negligence can be life-changing, especially if your proven absence voids your insurance coverage.
Homesure maintains the continuity of your insurance, mitigates your liability and keeps your neighbours happy.
It’s always a good idea to store your valuables in a safety deposit box or other off-site safe place during extended absences. That’s practical for documents and small items. But artwork, collectibles, heirloom items and even your in-home safe are of great interest to professional burglars and petty thieves alike.
A Homesure-attended property can help deter the criminal element, and support your insurance claim in the event of theft.
Everyone is afraid of fire: it’s unpredictable and life-threatening. Your diligent Homesure expert will routinely inspect your heating, lighting, fireplace and electrical appliances… all potential sources of malfunction and fire.
Routine Homesure inspections can help detect problems before they arise.
Water leakage inside a vacant home is rarely noticeable from the exterior. Yet damage from clogged or plugged drains, dripping faucets, penetration from heavy rain and a disastrous frozen or burst pipe can be significant and cumulative.
Your Homesure inspector’s vigilance can help limit the extent of water damage and allay your insurance carrier in the event of a claim.
The actions of petty criminals and unsupervised teenagers can damage your home and further signal its vacancy. Broken windows, “eggings”, graffiti… Homesure will monitor and immediately address these problems.
Homesure handles vandalism quickly so your home appears lived-in.
Prior to any prolonged absence, we will arrange a personal consultation to examine your needs and provide advice. We will help you clarify and understand the vacancy requirements of your insurance carrier. The frequency of home visits stipulated, the length of your planned absence and the specific support required will determine the customized list of Homesure services we prepare for your review and approval.
