Insights and tips on how to protect your property, giving you and your guests peace of mind.
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.
Nothing says fall like the sight of leaves on the ground, open windows throughout the property and the sweet smell of pumpkin spice! It’s a good time to prepare and deep clean your property for the cooler months. Don’t let the idea of cleaning for the season overwhelm you. Small actions now can help ensure everything goes smoothly for you and your renters.
We thought we were heading into calmer waters after a significant reduction of COVID-19 cases. Now, news outlets are talking about inflation and the possibility of a recession. While we’ve already experienced inflation through gas prices and rent increases, here’s what vacation rental owners need to pay attention to.
With recent data from Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), we now know where these disasters may be heading and how to prepare for them. Geography and geology can determine if your home is at greater risk for hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, or flooding.
It may be that time of year to renew your vacation rental policy or simply assess your current insurance situation. Even in the off-season, having a strong, comprehensive policy is key to keeping your business safe from the unforeseen.
Even if you’re allowed to rent out your home or condo through Airbnb, doing so can cause tension with neighbors and the HOA. There’s always the potential that your guests may not be respectful to property in common areas, act inappropriately or noisily, or make other tenants feel uncomfortable.
When undertaking a remodeling project, people often get caught up in the creative aspect and forget to review their insurance needs. Whether your budget is large or small, you’re adding not only value but also risk. To ensure your fixer-upper project goes smoothly and you have the coverage you need, here’s what you need to know.
