Home Watch Services, Naples, FL
Providing comprehensive customer service at your home or property with attention to detail is one of the key reasons 1-Stop Home Watch is considered one of the best home watch companies in Naples Fl. The neighborhood home watcher who lacks insurance and bonding may check the AC give a quick look but will miss many issues in the early stages. We use a comprehensive digital checklist that is time stamped and stored in a secure server as a PDF so you don’t have to waste your storage space on your computer. These reports are kept for several years to provide you information should you have an insurance claim. A link to the report is sent to you after each inspection.
Each inspector has been certified by the NHWA and uses best practices to stage and inspect your property looking for obvious issues including security, air conditioning, hot water heaters, water leaks, insects, mold, and mildew. We brush and flush toilets, run water in every drain and document that we turn the water off at the end of each inspection. We inspect the outside looking for issues with roof, gutters, lanais, pools, rodents, insects, and landscaping.
Our home watch services electronic checklists are customized to meet the needs of each of our client’s homes.

HouseSetter Sherlock™ – Cellular Based Monitoring System
(Note: 1-Stop Home Watch has no vested interest in the sale of this device)
As noted above we strongly believe absentee homeowners in Naples, Florida should include a cellular based monitoring system that has both you and us, your home watch company, on the Alert List to keep us both informed about the conditions in your home and provide ample opportunity to address issues with temperature, humidity, and power as they arise. This allows for a less frequent inspection schedule than the normal weekly inspections. The National Home Watch Association (NHWA) has partnered with HouseSetter to provide a solution for our customers. HouseSetter was developed by the same engineers who designed the On-Star system for General Motors and have special pricing for the clients of NHWA accredited Home Watch companies. Please call us at 239-227-7001 for more information.
