With Your Own Home Watch Business …
(this fast-growing service business is needed in almost every town)
The senior population is growing fast – today one out of six Americans is over 65. That’s 52 million seniors! Many of these seniors can afford (and want) second homes, so the number of second homes has grown dramatically in the last 2 decades. In addition to prosperous seniors, the number of highly paid professionals has also grown in recent years, and a second home is high on their wish list as well.
As the number of second homes has grown, so has the need for someone to look after both the primary and second home while the owners are away. And because home prices have increased so much, they are a major investment that requires paid professional care to prevent and control damage and risks from everything from natural disasters to a leaky faucet.
Today, almost all home insurance companies require regular home checks by a pro if a home is to be unoccupied for extended periods of time. According to industry insiders, home watch services have now become a multi-billion dollar industry, with steady growth and great prospects for the future, as it’s an essential, recession-proof service that’s needed every year regardless of whether the economy is booming or not.
This growing demand has created a golden opportunity for those who can provide security and peace of mind for homeowners who are away from their homes.
It’s important to note that home watch services are needed in all communities, not just in vacation or sunbelt areas. For example, when a “snowbird” homeowner leaves their primary residence in the fall to spend a few months in the sunbelt, a skilled home watch pro is needed to look after their home during the winter months to prevent problems, just after another home watch pro looks after the sunbelt home during the summer months when the owner has returned to their northern home.
A home watch business can keep you as busy as you wish, whether you live in a small community or a large city. It requires no formal education or expensive training, just common sense, a can-do attitude, organizational skills and honesty. Plus, a home watch business can be started with very little money – as little as a few hundred dollars. If you have a car and a cellphone, you’re almost there.
I read the book in a day, and was able to start my new home watch service in just two weeks with your help. The guide is an excellent reference tool, and worth 10 times the small price you charge. Maria Rodriguez – Kansas
The rewards of becoming a home watch professional are great – not just in dollars and cents – but in providing peace of mind for your clients, who entrust the care of their home investment to your regular home checks. That’s priceless!
Another reward is that you’ll have a flexible schedule so you can better balance your everyday life with your client’s needs. That could mean golf in the morning and home checks in the afternoon, or whatever you enjoy doing on your own schedule. That’s why a home watch business is perfect for retired or semi-retired folks.
How Much Can I Make?
In a recent survey of home watch businesses in all areas of the United States, the average fee for a regular home check was $34, and most homeowners choose weekly home checks, or $136 per month. The average visit takes 20-30 minutes, so that with 2 visits per hour, the hourly rate is $68. Using that average rate, a capable one-person home watch pro could earn over $10,000 a month.
Keep in mind that most home watch businesses are seasonal, so expect to be really busy for around 6 months of the year. That’s over $60,000 per season, using that average $34 fee. Using the add-on services and referral fees from contractors and other service providers, you can easily boost that income by 30-40%, so a seasonal, six month income of over $80,000 is within reach.
The opportunities are wide open in this fast-growing field, and so is the potential for an above-average income that is recession proof. If you’ve always wanted to be your own boss, a home watch business could be just right for you. Get started by reading our step-by-step guidebook How To Start A Profitable Home Watch Business.
