Home and Boat Watchdog maintains national accreditation

November 20, 2017

Home and Boat Watchdog has earned Accredited Member status from the National Home Watch Association for the second consecutive year. The NHWA was formed in 2009 in order to establish and maintain the highest industry standards for Home Watch and absentee homeowner services throughout the United States and Canada. Home Watch is a service that keeps an eye on things at a clients' vacation or primary homes while they are not in residence.

Owner David Koster has been living and boating at the beach for over 25 years and had a house built in Rehoboth Beach in 1999.

Home and Boat Watchdog is a trustworthy service that visits and visually inspects property and vessels to check on their well being and notifies the owner of its status. If a situation does occur, homeowners can be assured they will be notified as soon as possible and the company will handle it to minimize further damage and resolve the problem.

Home and Boat Watchdog uses industry best practices as part of their commitment to clients. They are a primary advocate and are looking out for clients' best interests with the highest level of professionalism; they look for any potential problems while clients are away. They have customized services for absentee property owners, depending upon their individual needs and concerns, based on trust, communication, privacy and confidentiality. They are licensed, bonded, insured, trained, vetted and accredited.

Some insurance policies require regular professional inspection of rental/second home properties and boats while the owner is absent. Most have exclusions if the owner is not present otherwise. So many things can happen during your absence: break-ins, alarms, water leaks, electrical problems, insects, pests, mold, squatters, deliveries, service people, guests and storm damage. After many years of watching homes and holding keys for family, friends and neighbors, Koster enjoys supporting Delaware beach area property owners by saving them time and money and giving them peace of mind while they are away.

Home and Boat Watchdog serves Lewes and Rehoboth Beach. For more information, call 302-278-4388, email or go to
