Frequently Asked Questions
We have provided some of the more commonly asked questions and answers about home watch services.
If you have any questions that are not addressed in this section, please feel free to contact us.
Who will have access to my home?
How frequently will BSE Home Services inspect my property?
We offer a variety of options that take our clients budget and needs to heart. Taking into consideration the nature of issues that can arise in a vacant home, the more frequent the better. We recommend weekly visits to minimize the time that an issue can go undiscovered, but we also offer bi-weekly, monthly and per visit options.
Another thing to take into consideration is your insurance policy requirements. Some homeowner policies require inspections at specified intervals in order to maintain coverage on vacant or unoccupied properties. Please check with your insurance provider for additional information on their policies prior to choosing an inspection frequency.
Is BSE Home Services a security company?
No, we are not a security company, nor do we intend to replace the services of one. With that in mind, having someone at your property for scheduled inspections can act as a deterrent, and any damage due to attempted break-ins or vandalism will be discovered during our next scheduled inspection.

How much do your services cost?
We offer a large variety of service options, while keeping your budget and specific needs in mind. Although we do recommend inspections as frequently as possible, we also understand that there may be financial constrictions that do not allow for weekly home checks. We have options starting as low as $40 per visit, but we base our rates off of your unique home. Rates are based not only on size, but specific features and amenities of your home. We offer FREE in home consultations to determine the best rate for you.
Regardless of the out of pocket cost, our services are designed to protect what is likely the largest investment you will make, your home. Your small out of pocket expense for our services can prevent you from having significantly higher costs if your home is left unattended to during your absence. You wouldn't neglect proper maintenance on your car, or bargain hunt for your doctor. Why should your home be any different?
