My Home Watch franchises across Southern Africa

The home watch service that offers customers the highest quality service when they have to be absent from their homes and pets.


The property checks & services sector is in high demand these days.

Our market research shows that almost 90% of people would take advantage of a professional and affordable home and pet watch service instead of relying on friends, family or neighbours.

My Home Watch is built on a simple concept: We give customers peace of mind knowing their homes and beloved pets are being cared for by a professional!

We offer property checks and services to:

  • Property owners
  • Pet owners
  • Real-estate agencies
  • Airbnb
  • Holiday home and property investment owners.

With ever-increasing demand, My Home Watch is now looking for a team of franchise partners to help expand the brand nationwide.





The home-watching industry is new to South Africa but is snowballing. It’s helping South Africans to care for their vacant homes and pets when they can’t be there.

Thanks to Airbnb, Home Away, and other holiday home and investment markets, there are many time-poor property owners facing difficulties in keeping up with the demand and upkeep that a home entails.

By becoming a My Home Watch franchisee, you will be joining a recognised and reputable brand in high demand and riding a trend that is only set to grow over the coming years.

You will have, from day one, the full support of our team behind you so you can be the boss of your My Home Watch business but never have to worry about what to do at any given point. Our successful business model will provide you with all the guidance you need.


My Home Watch is well known for our customer home and pet watch service, which includes:

  • A Specialist works with each client to create customised services that work with the homeowner’s needs.
  • A Specialist is a local professional, so customers have the same person serving them each time.
  • A Specialist offers a massive range of property solutions so customers can maintain their vacant homes with ease.
  • A Specialist acts as a go-to person every time a customer requires them, so they can rest assure they will never have to wonder who will be caring for their home and pets again.


  • Our straightforward licence and independent network make joining My Home Watch an attractive proposition for those wanting to start a home watching service business.
  • We take the complexities out of setting up and running your own business. Everything you need is ready-made for you. If you like being in control of your business, with the backing of a recognisable brand and having access to a network of like-minded professionals, then My Home Watch is for you!

  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Socially self-motivated.
