Seasonal Home Insurance Tips
Be Proactive With Preventative Measures
Insurance isn’t cheap, but there are many ways you can help to reduce your summer home’s insurance premiums and prevent issues that may require insurance to fix. For example, protect your home against theft, especially because it is left unattended for a better part of the year.
Use security cameras, and alarm systems, and have someone regularly check on the home locally. Maintaining utilities like heat, AC, and water will also be beneficial in the long run. Turn the water off to the home when you leave to prevent minimal damage while you’re gone.
If you’re looking to rent out the home when you’re not using it, property liability insurance will keep you and your assets covered. Similarly, personal umbrella policies offer an extra layer of liability protection for your belongings if there’s a serious accident on your property.
