Owning A Second Home in Boston or on Cape Cod

Owning a second home in Boston or on Cape Cod comes with a lot of perks. But it also comes with a lot of challenges. Stepping away from your busy life to manage your second home can be overwhelming and at times, checking off those to-do list items seems impossible.

Our home management services were designed to ease your stress and take on the daunting tasks that you just don’t have time for. From checking-in on your heating systems, to arranging your travel plans, consider it done.

While You’re Away:

  • Stocking your refrigerator – Avoid the annoyance of waiting in line at the grocery store and send us with your grocery lists. We’ll make sure you come home to a full fridge, stocked with your favorite foods.
  • Making dinner reservations – Plan ahead and contact our concierge services to locate restaurants you’ve been dying to try. Simplified will make reservations weeks in advance so you don’t have to think about it once you get here.
  • Referrals to service providers – We can connect you to the best local service providers to make sure your property is well-taken care of while you’re gone. One less thing to worry about!
  • Overseeing home maintenance – We understand you may be concerned about service providers not showing up on time or leaving projects unfinished. We’ll have a member of the Simplified team be on-sight to supervise and send updates. We’ll ensure everything is done as requested.
