I'm concerned about renters causing damage to my property? How to you handle this?
Your property is our main concern. On each rental there is a security deposit taken along with rental insurance which protects you on both minor and major issues. The listing sites also provide host guarantees to protect your home and your items from accidental damage. In over 500 rentals, we have only had two issues, which were completely resolved by the security deposit or the renters insurance.
