Want to rent your home this summer and stay stress-free? Trust these tips before you rent your home!

Many Floridians love to travel away during their summer months. If you are planning on taking a vacation, or moving to a second home for the summer, you may be considering renting out your home in Florida. It is crucial to be prepared before letting renters come into your home. We encourage you to speak with a Florida Peninsula agent to make you feel more comfortable throughout the process.

The following are a few key tips to take into consideration before renting out your home.

·         Make sure your house is clean to make your tenants feel at ease.

·         Provide your guests with information about the area.  Providing a map, a few places to eat and some fun things to do can increase the value of your rental.

·         Make sure you know who is renting your home.  Don’t be scared to run a credit check, a background check and possibly take a look at the renter’s professional life.

·         Give tenants readily available rules and write a contract.  For example, if you don’t want smoking in the house, it is important to let your tenant know beforehand.

·         You decide who is going to rent your home.  Research the market in order to find a competitive price to give you a number of tenants to choose from.

·         Protect your property with the right Florida Peninsula renter’s insurance.  Renter’s insurance is a small cost which can save you from thousands of dollars in losses.

Make sure to speak with a Florida Peninsula representative about getting renters insurance for your summer.  Renter’s insurance can protect you from many types of property loss from fire, theft, and explosion as well as protect your property from other damages.
