Regarding renting your house through Airbnb, Wealth Solutions recommends you ask yourself three questions:

What risk do the tenants pose to your property?

This could include the damage caused on your property, criminal activities or injuries to the guests. The tenants may refuse to pay up their rent or may engage in actions that may bring about legal action.

Are there any options for insurance coverage?

Most homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover short-term rental agreements. This will mean that you will be personally liable for any expenses that are incurred by the tenants.

What Protection Does Airbnb Offer?

It is important to get acquainted to the protection that Airbnb offers. It is also important to know that this protection is normally secondary. Therefore, it does not begin to function until you have completely exhausted your resources.

Bottom Line

Information is an important resource when undertaking a particular investment. Answering these three question will give you a leverage on your investment. Blair’s Wealth Solutions will help you answer them and determine if or not your property will give you returns on Airbnb.
