When renting your home, consider these points before making your final decision:

  • Is your home rental ready? Renters will use your furniture, towels, kitchen appliances, and whatever else is in the home. If you have anything you would rather have left alone, it’s best to remove those items from the property for safe keeping.
  • Is your homeowners insurance current and appropriate for this endeavor? Accidents happen, and there is nothing worse than an accident with no insurance coverage. Notify your insurance company that you are periodically renting the property to obtain the appropriate policy. This will help eliminate confusion and any possible pitfalls in the event of a fire or other damage.
  • Make sure everything is in proper working order. This is a big deal to renters, as they want to have a nice place to stay while at the festival. If you have a sticky door, a window that won’t open or shut, or evidence of a dog, these things should be corrected and cleaned. Think about how you would like to see the property if renting it for a pretty penny.

Renting is a fantastic way to get out of town, make a little money, and have a paying house sitter. With the a little upfront preparation, you can leave with peace of mind. Since this event is held every year, you might even find that you get regulars in your home.
