How We Take Care of Your St. Simons Island Property
What if you have a second home, but you aren’t interested in renting it out? This is a home you bought specifically for getting away from the stresses of everyday living on a regular basis and you just don’t want to deal with the odds of strangers being in your home during a weekend you might need to get away. Chances are you don’t live within an easy driving distance that will allow you to perform the upkeep and maintenance that all houses need, nor will you be able to just swing by to make sure everything looks ok. Did you know that rental property management companies – SSI Rentals in particular – offer house sitting services? An unwatched house that is empty even part of the year can lead to homeowner nightmares and we have worked out a house sitting program – in addition to our property rental management services – that helps to avoid even minor inconveniences in your second home.
What our services include
Below is a list of the services we provide when you hire us to watch over your property. Home management is an important job that we take very seriously and we protect your investment as if it were our own, so this is a partial list. First and foremost, we periodically drive by, checking for any obvious issues; are the branches of the beautiful tree you have planted in the front yard protruding over the sidewalk, obstructing pedestrians? Our professionals we hire will trim and prune the tree, helping it maintain a healthy but non-obstructive shape.
We regularly schedule inspections to ensure no damage has come to the house, but after a storm has passed over the island, we conduct inspections to survey for roof leaks, damaged windows, and other storm related problems. We also include pest maintenance in our services; nothing ruins a weekend getaway faster than nasty insects who have claimed your home as their own.
Do you live on St. Simons Island for extended periods of time? We offer mail collection and forward your mail to your primary address when you are away. Preparing the home for the winter is another duty we perform as part of our Home management house sitting. Georgia winters aren’t all that bad, but we do have the occasional harsh winter storm and you won’t have to worry about frozen pipes or gas lines. If you let us know ahead of time that you are planning to come for a stay, we will prepare your home for your arrival. Cleaning, opening the windows to let the fresh air in and rid the house of that musty empty scent – it’s just part of our job!
