PROPERTY SERVICES – HOUSE /PET SITTING
As Maryland’s premiere property management company, Red Umbrella offers a wide variety of services that go beyond traditional property management. Our list of crucial services includes house sitting, emergency house repair services, and seasonal house preparation.
We are committed to making sure our clients get the best services possible in the shortest amount of time possible – and with a cost-efficiency that works within your budget. We offer house sitting services for vacant houses waiting to be sold, vacation homes, and while you are away, giving a safe appearance that the structure is occupied and in tip-top condition while you await a buyer. Get ready for your next visit, or enjoy your vacation.
Keep the House Looking Occupied
It isn’t fun to think about, but there are burglars and vandals that prey on empty houses waiting to be sold. By hiring a professional house sitter to stay in your home or simply visit multiple times a day to give an occupied appearance, you can help to guard against any potential burglars casing your neighborhood.
The cost spent on a professional house sitter is almost certainly less than the cost and energy you would spend trying to repair a home that has been vandalized. Furthermore, if your home is noticeably vandalized while on the market, it is the worst type of advertisement and tells buyers that they aren’t moving into a safe neighborhood. Simply having someone looking after the house daily will make a huge difference when interest parties come to see their new home for the first time.
Keep the House Clean
Whether you have a huge yard that needs regular care to keep looking showroom ready or many big hardwood floors inside that need to be maintained, our professional house sitters can make sure that your property stays in excellent shape for showings and viewings. Bringing in the mail, watering plants, adjusting lights and always a thorough walkthrough. Noticing any problems quickly, such as loss of power, burst pipes or storm damage. In the chilly and snowy winter months, a house sitter can keep sidewalks properly shoveled and salted, the driveway clear, and any ice removed. In the summer, house sitters can keep the grass cut and help to maintain its natural splendor, tend the blooming flowers, and make sure the house doesn’t melt in the heat.
Red Umbrella also offers professional and cost-efficient solutions to pet-sitting. Whether you are going on vacation for a week or just heading to the office, leaving your pet at home can be stressful for both you and the pet. We at Red Umbrella are proud to offer pet sitting as part of our concierge services, ensuring that your pets get the best treatment while you are away and unable to care for them.
Benefits for Your Pet
While pet sitting services can seem like a great option for the owner, many pet owners don’t realize just how much of a difference pet sitting can make for their pet.
- Daily visits, multiple visits per day (or end of the day to feed fish/birds)
- Getting to stay at home in their normal everyday environment and not having to re-learn where things are
- Following their typical mealtimes and getting to eat their regular food and treats
- Sticking to their typical exercise or walking routine
- Getting to play with someone who loves animals and knows how to keep them entertained
- If something happens while you are away on vacation, your pet sitter can get your pet prompt and expert medical treatment in the case of an emergency
- Keeping your pet away from other animals that could potentially transmit to them diseases or illnesses
