Home Watch Training

Home Watch:  A great business, but it is not for everyone.

Many people believe that Home Watch is an “easy” business and, because they live in a home, they are qualified to watch over the homes of Seasonal Residents.  Home Watch is a REAL business and is perfect for those who are customer service oriented, self-starters, true professionals, and entrepreneurs.  It is not for someone who does not recognize the responsibility they are undertaking or the people who do not take it seriously.

“You don’t know what you don’t know until you know what you don’t know!

Introduction to Home Watch:  FREE Informational Seminars and Webinars are designed to give an overview of the home watch industry as well as the income potential. You will learn that Home Watch is a REAL Business that requires investment, business credentials, training, and commitment.  The myths and misconceptions will be debunked.  You will have the information needed so you will know if home watch is the right business for you.

The Home Watch Training Program is fee-based training that will accelerate your learning curve and kick-start your business.  Everyone’s expertise brings unique value to the home watch industry.  It is our job to teach you to see homes differently, think like a Home Watch Professional, recognize irregularities and early signs of damage, and to know how to respond when something does happen.  It is not a matter of IF there will be potential damage, it is a matter of WHEN.

The Home Watch Training Program addresses business fundamentals; conducting an exceptional home watch visit; tools of the trade; home watch contract; documentation and forms; and guest speakers from fields such as insurance, air conditioning, plumbing, disaster recovery and much more.
