Serving Our South Walton Neighbors
Whitten Home Watch
Rest. We'll be your boots on the ground, when you're not around.
Whitten Home Watch serves that middle ground between having a property manager and doing it all yourself from a distance.
What is Home Watch?
The National Home Watch Association describes Home Watch as “a visual inspection of a home or property, looking for obvious issues.”
In other words, Whitten Home Watch monitors your home while you're away so that potential problems can be identified and averted before they evolve into disasters.
Whitten Home Watch offers regular, visual inspections of your property and "boots on the ground" service to give you the peace of mind every second home owner desires.
We inspect exteriors and interiors, looking for obvious issues including water damage, mold, insect infestation, security breaches, abnormalities, appliance malfunction, climate control problems and much more! Every inspection comes with a time/GPS-stamped digital report including photos, description of potential problems and recommendations.
We can also meet with and keep your service vendors accountable, securely hold keys to your property, and schedule cleaning, maintenance and other concierge service requests. Check out our additional services.
We're like a trusted neighbor with keys to care for your property when you can't be there.
Whitten Home Watch Is Ideal For:
Second Home Owners
Vacation Home Owners
Luxury Home Owners
Aging in Place
Real Estate Brokers
Regular Visual Inspections. Boots on the Ground. Concierge Service.
How It Works

Your comprehensive report includes our findings against the customized, multi-point inspection, photos of items of concern, important notes and recommendations.
You can access, download, and forward your digital reports at anytime, from anywhere.
#3 If We Encounter a Concern
We will provide you with immediate notification.
We will secure the situation if at all possible and offer viable recommendations to solve the problem.
Upon request, act as a key holder and coordinator for other contractors to fix the problem.
