Personal Home Check-Ups

Low Country Real Estate of the Southeast understands the importance of home check-ups for the safety and peace of mind for you and your family. Not only are home check-ups important for your home’s well-being, but they’re also financial investments. In fact, most insurance companies won’t cover damage incurred to your home if you haven’t had a recent home inspection. To save you money and time, we create customized check-up reports for each home we inspect and provide professional services for any damages, repairs, or maintenance that may be needed. To ensure that your property remains in the best possible condition, we are here to help. 

Does your Hilton Head Island/Bluffton home need cared for while you’re away? Low Country Real Estate of the Southeast provides peace of mind by taking care of your home when you aren’t able to. Our personal home check-ups begin with thorough walk-throughs of your property on a regularly pre-determined basis. We ensure that your home is safe by carefully monitoring your property and proactively searching for any signs of potential damage. We’re also available to coordinate vendor work and assist in scheduling companies to perform any projects on your property. To ensure that any repair or construction is performed properly, we conduct check-ups after any vendors have entered your home. For more information on our personal home check-up services, contact Katie Thompson via email at katie.thompson@lowcountryrealestatese.com or by telephone at 843.295.0444.
