The Real Property Management Bay State West Difference

The eyes and ears of trained people who visit your Western Mass home on a regular basis.  Our goal is to provide a comprehensive and proactive approach to watching homes for their owners who are temporarily away. We are the answer to “Who will watch over my home for me when I am away”?

Step 1: Give us a call!

There is no charge and no obligation.  If you decide to move ahead after our initial conversation, we will meet you for a comprehensive walk-through of your home and a team member will work with you to determine your home watch needs and provide you with a complete service plan and associated pricing.

Step 2: Start Home Watch Services

We will start visiting your home on the agreed date. A member of the RPM Bay State West team will visit your home on a regular basis and conduct the home check, then provide a report including pictures of any problems we might find.

What is included in the Home Watch service? We check the home’s exterior and interior and the property’s general condition. After each visit, we will send you a report via email that details the condition of your home. We can do weekly, bi-weekly, monthly visits, or create a custom schedule for your home.

Pricing for Home Watch services will depend on how often you want us to check in your home, the size of your home, the number of bathrooms, kitchens, wet bars, etc., and any unique features requiring checks. Costs will be established during our no-fee visit to your home so that you can clearly understand the services that you will receive. Give us a call today!
