Insights and tips on how to protect your property, giving you and your guests peace of mind.
Vacation rentals present a unique opportunity to create a more personalized, memorable vacation experience when compared with traditional hotels. Vacation rentals have the practical comfort of an actual residence, the ability to explore the neighborhood and the opportunity to discover aspects of the destination guests might not encounter when staying at a hotel.
It can be easy to assume that most travelers staying at your vacation rental property will be exceptional guests. They’ll abide by your house rules, not disturb the neighbors and hopefully, won’t leave a trail of damage behind. However, you may be setting yourself up for issues in the future by thinking this way.
Energy costs are expected to reach a decade-long high this winter, according to the National Energy Assistance Directors Association. The rising prices will be felt most intensely for properties that rely on natural gas and heating oil.
Builders risk insurance, also sometimes referred to as course of construction insurance, is coverage that assists with various expenses that may result from property damage amid construction projects. Understanding builders insurance can be complex as every home construction project is unique and coverage needs vary.
Revenge travel has been at the forefront of many travelers’ minds, booking trips far into the future and focusing more on experiences rather than physical items. As we look forward to what this year will look like for short-term rental owners, our excitement grows.
The U.S. experiences some of the most extreme winter weather in the world, and property owners constantly have to protect their residence from blizzards and extreme cold. Among these risks, winter weather presents some of the most significant challenges—challenges that may even lead to substantial property damage.
Imagine booking a guest with manners and characteristics of a gigantic-furred yeti. It’s exactly what claims professionals fear most. The abominable snowman creature aimlessly wanders about with no clear objective and little consideration for the care of your property.
Nature is unpredictable, so don’t wait to prepare your vacation rental for the harshest season. Fortunately, simple inspections and improvements to your property can prevent costly winter-related insurance claims.
Water damage is one of the leading issues our policyholders report and some of the most expensive damages to repair. Water expands as it freezes and puts significant pressure on the metal or plastic pipes that hold it.
To combat the risk of fire or inhalation of dangerous carbon monoxide (CO) gas, it’s important for you to make chimney care part of your home maintenance plan. Performing simple safety practices and maintenance on your vacation rental’s fireplace can help keep it in good condition, ensuring your guests and property stay safe.
