Bonded and Insured
For Your Protection

Customized For The Second Home Owner

A professional home watch service is much more than a drive by of your property. Relying on neighbors, friends, family or in some cases a real estate agent may seem like a good plan in the long run it won’t provide the peace of mind you need while away from your second home. At Mountain Home TLC we have a standardized method specifically designed to be proactive in protecting your property so you can enjoy your home versus worrying about it.

With MHTLC the Home Check assessment is a walkthrough based on a mobile app designed to go step by step through the home and property check process looking for obvious issues. After the walkthrough our clients receive a comprehensive real-time report that includes documentation of any findings and supporting images that can be used for insurance purposes in case of a claim. This same application is used for scheduling and invoicing allowing us to manage the lifecycle of the home check.

MHTLC teamed up with HomeWatchIT as its reporting application for our Technology and Communication needs. Check out this video for more details.
