My First, and Almost Last, Guest

Preparing for my first guest was nerve wracking. I imagined all of the things that could go wrong…especially the things that could go terribly wrong and then I magnified that by 100! Eventually, I calmed down and thought reasonably about my preparation. Was I ready? I reviewed and re-reviewed my lease. I went over my check lists…all 15 of them. I worried about having enough towels, would people know how to work the B-B-Q grill, the fire pit, and the tv? Would they respect or burn my house to the ground? The questions and doubts, mostly irrational, running through my mind were endless.

Build a Winning Team

Having a good team in place can make or break your short-term rental business. You can’t do it all yourself. Even if you just have one property you are making a mistake if you try to do it all on your own. If you build these relationships with people and professionals that you trust and who understand your goals and your expectations you will have much higher probability of a successful short-term business. It’s so important that you treat this as a business from the beginning. Make a good business decision and hire the right professionals to help you. A few of the professionals that I have found to be an integral part of the success of my business are: cleaning crew, yard maintenance, handyman, accountant, attorney and local businesses.

Insurance

You can not rely on the homeowners policy that you have for your second home to protect you when you are using your home as a short term rental. Short-term rental is typically specifically excluded from your coverage. The last thing you want is to find out after you file a claim that you are not covered.

You are going to need a commercial insurance policy specifically for short-term rental properties. You will have to shop around for an insurance firm that specializes in this type of policy as not all insurance agencies carry this coverage.

Generally, these policies will cover you for your personal use of the property as well as events that occur when the property is being used as a short-term rental. In fact, the majority of these policies will cover you for lost income in the event an accident occurs which requires repair, which interferes with your ability to collect rental income.

It is important to find an agent that you like and trust. You want someone who will take the time to explain what is and is not covered and what is required of you to maintain that coverage.
