Not every homeowner needs the same level of services when engaging their home watch service. That’s why we at Golden Rule Home Watch & Concierge have developed three convenient home watch packages for you to choose from: Platinum, Gold and Silver. We can provide the simple service of holding a key to your home, watch over your home, or help protect your home and auto while you’re away. Which home watch package is right for you?

When Do I Need a Home Watch Package?
Whenever you are away from home for an extended period of time—no matter what the reason—you should engage a home watch service. You never know what might go wrong inside your home. A pipe might burst, your heating system may fail, or a storm might drop a branch on your house. If nobody is there to catch the problem, the damage to your home will be much worse. Plus, it’s nice to have the peace of mind that your home is safe and cared for. With our 40-point assessment delivered to you after each visit, you’ll see exactly what we find—or don’t find.
Plan to use a home watch service when you are:
- On vacation
- On assignment
- On long-term travel
- Spending time between multiple homes
- Away from home due to illness or emergency
- Caring for a home that is part of a family estate
