Property Management

Protecting • Peace of Mind •

The Landings is not your typical home watch company run by an individual or couple with limited resources, one person to contact and only basic services. We are an established business operating for over 24 years providing services in Lee County.

All of our employees are background checked, highly trained and tested before entering your home. Our inspectors live in your immediate area and are dedicated to your community, so you get that personal service.

I am sure you know the importance in today’s world of having someone responsible to watch over your investment property at times when you cannot.  Also, if you rent your property to guests, I’m sure you would agree that there’s nothing better than having happy guests who will want to continue renting from you for years to come.  Once again, that’s where we can help YOU.

Having a neighbor stop in periodically as a favor to check your home may initially seem like a good idea. However, when a serious issue arises, or you need someone to take swift action on your behalf, your property can quickly become an imposition to your neighbor. That is why it is important to have a trained professional methodically inspect your home, complete a detailed inspection report per visit, and have the ability to swiftly coordinate licensed professionals to assist in the repair and maintenance of your home when something goes awry.

I make it clear to our clients that we are not home inspectors or mold inspectors. That line of work carries a much different degree of training and state certification. Our job as “homewatch” inspectors is to visually inspect your home and property for obvious issues. If we notice any abnormalities, we immediately report it to you, and assist in coordinating licensed professionals to remedy the situation on your behalf in your absence. Essentially, we become an advocate for you in your absence, as a trusted resource.

We manage and perform home watch inspections, provide concierge services, and coordinate maintenance and service of residential properties. So, if you are an absentee owner and have a vacation home, residential home, or an investment property…then you need US! Remember…unforeseen damage can happen at any time. Your A/C compressor may go out, leaving your home victim to humid and stagnant air, causing the potential growth and spread of mold spores. A ceiling leak from a second-floor condo may cause costly water damage to your property as well. Many things can go wrong in 30 days in an unattended property. That is why we strongly recommend 2-4 homewatch inspection visits per month.

As we watch your home we may find repairs where a specific specialist is needed such as heating and air conditioning. Our teams know specialists in your area and are trained to negotiate for the repair, let the specialist in your home, and monitor their actions until the job is completed. We are licensed, bonded and insured and we only use repair specialists with the same qualifications as well as reduced insurance costs.
