Always Home: A solution for Second Home Owners

Brian McCarthy is one of those businessmen who really evaluates the industry. After moving to the area with his wife Valerie about two years ago, he deduced that there are four areas of businesses he could have started: medical, hospitality, real estate, and services. He wanted to offer something to the area that wasn’t being fulfilled; to be a big fish in a small pond, as they say.
Flash forward, and you’ll find Brian zooming around Florida going from appointment to appointment with his six-month-old business, Always Home. Always Home is a unique company that offers so much, it’s hard to put into words.
Brian says they’re a home management company. Akin to living in a community where they take care of your property, fix things when they’re broken, and take care of all the pesky maintenance issues, Always Home is there to take care of your home when you aren’t able to. (Get it? Someone is “always home?")
Their key market is second-home owners. And, Brian estimates there are 50,000 “second homes” in the Greater Sarasota area, making the Cultural Coast a large market for his business.
So, why Always Home? For years, Brian and Valerie owned a second home in Sarasota and quickly became aware of the difficulties maintaining it. From housekeeping to grounds ... everything was a hassle. Who is going to meet the contractor when they show up? Check for leaky faucets? Cut the overgrown grass? Clean the dirty pool?
Yes, you could just hire a pool guy, a faucet guy, and a lawn guy ... but, why not let Always Home take care of it all for you? These trusted home care specialists will inspect, protect, maintain, and improve your second home. They work with more than 50 service providers so all is handled directly through Always Home.
And their services aren’t too expensive either -- for just $15/month a home care specialist at Always Home will be your Key Holder. This is someone that can be trusted to respond to any emergency on your behalf, no matter what time of day.
Pretty neat, huh?
