Home Watch Safety Division

At Jamie Schaefer, Professional Home Inspector Inc. We take pride in watching after your home while you are away. Whether you are a seasonal Florida homeowner, or just planning some extended time away from home, we can customize a Home Watch Safety Program for you. This will give you peace of mind while you are gone, with custom scheduled Home Watch Safety Visits!

Home Watch Safety Visits include a visual inspection of your home and property looking for any and all obvious problems.

We provide a digital report that includes images after each visit, and we will communicate any issues observed to you immediately. We believe in upholding the highest quality of industry standards.
