Insurance Costlier for Vacation Homes; Tweet Free Info on Effect of Vacancy

June 5, 2012

Home owners can expect to pay 15 percent to 20 percent more for vacation home insurance than they’re paying for their regular home, according to an article on HouseLogic. That’s if their insurer doesn’t get spooked by extended vacancies.

Make sure home owners understand the risk of leaving a vacation home unoccupied for long stretches by tweeting a free article from the REALTOR® Content Resource on losing insurance coverage by leaving a vacation home vacant.

You can also tweet (or post to Facebook, your blog, or your website; add to your e-newsletter; email; or brand, print, and hand deliver) four other articles from the June “Ensure Your Vacation Home is Relaxing” theme. Or just search the REALTOR® Content Resource by keyword or topic for other content ranging from home improvement and maintenance to taxes and finance.
