Did you know?
A single water leak incident in a vacant home averages over $5000 in property damage according to the Insurance Information Institute. And that doesn’t even address the hassle and time investment the homeowner must endure.
A study by the National Fire Protection Association shows that U.S. fire departments respond to an estimated average of 366,600 home structure fires per year. Many of these incidents occur due to small, undetected maintenance issues (where someone in an occupied property would have recognized and handled the problem before it caused a larger loss). 37% of these homes contained no working smoke detectors, and 23% contained at least one smoke detector that was inoperable.
Most insurance companies include a clause that the homeowner’s insurance will expire if a home is left vacant for more than 30 or 60 days (depending on the policy). This leaves the property owner financially vulnerable for all the risks previously noted. As reported by: The Turner Agency, Inc.
According to the FBI website, there were 9 million reported property crimes in 2012. One of the leading factors a criminal considers before selecting a target is whether or not the property appears occupied.
With winter upon us, the time is now to close, secure and prepare your property for the off season. Let us take the hassle and worry from you today!
