Whether you are a client or an individual managing your own home, you need to minimize the amount of time it is vacant.
Many bad things can happen to a vacant home that wouldnt happen to a occupied home
1) Fire: small electrical fires or smoke smells would be caught by a tenant. outlets, lights, heaters, appliances can cause these. Cost: $150 if Occupied, >5000 if vacant
2) Flood: probably the biggest risk. Pipes leak, freeze… fittings come loose. sewer lines decay. These are quickly caught by tenants. Cost: $150 if Occupied, >5000 if vacant
3) Breakins and squatters: Local people know when a property is vacant. they might try to fraudulently lease it, move in, or just have a party. Either way the damage to you is potentially high.
Insurance may cover some of this…. assuming your carrier approved you having a vacant house and not monitoring it. And they will charge a ton for a vacant house. … but the work and potential loss is huge.
