Snowbird Property Management

Vancouver Island remains a superb location to spend the summer months or for those residing within our Eastern Provinces; our region represents a welcomed winter retreat.
Often we are approached by clients to oversee the vacant management of their homes for insurance purposes, plus the provision of peace of mind, while they travel for extended period off the Island.

Vacant or Snowbird Management services can be tailored to suit your specific needs.


Most insurance underwriters insist that a home which is vacant for more than 14 days be inspected at regular intervals.

Our services include inspections that meet the underwriter’s requirements and will be completed either weekly or bi-weekly if desired. These inspections entail a full review of the property inside and out, while inspection all the plumbing / mechanical components of the home to ensure there are no potential issues. Our inspectors acquire photographic or video evidence of the state of your home as a virtual record, the same of which will prove beneficial should an issue arise.

On the completion of each inspection, you will received an e-mailed summary defining the date and time of the event, plus any concerns that may require your directive. Should it be necessary, photos will be provided to aid you in a decision.
