Second Home Property Management

Second Home Property Management Plans

Heath Second Home Services provides property management service to non-rental and vacation homeowners. We give you peace of mind knowing that you have a trusted partner caring for your home during all four seasons. Each season in Vermont brings special challenges to the homeowner, and we are here to assist you in preparing for those challenges and providing a watchful eye on your home.

As part of our Home Watch Plans, Heath Second Home Services conducts home wellness inspections at an interval of your choice. By performing regular inspections of your home, we are able to recognize small issues before they become costly problems. For each visit to your home, we will conduct a thorough and comprehensive inspection completing an extensive checklist of both the interior and exterior of your home's infrastructure. Upon completion of the inspection, we will prepare an inspection report documenting the condition and outlining any concerns or actions needed to maintain your home properly. The inspection report will also include photographic documentation of exterior and interior portions of your home.

Vendor Property Management for Your Second Home in Vermont

Our property management vendor service takes the headache out of serching for the right contractor. Every property requires regular and periodic maintenance, repairs, and improvements.

We have established relationships with local contractors and can assist you in procurement, management, and inspection of third party services. Instead of dealing with several service providers, allow us to be your single point of contact; we will handle all of the coordination.
