How Do I Secure My Home for Rental?

Renting your property to others can be an intimidating prospect. Common questions usually include topics such as damage, theft, and overall security, but with a few simple precautions you’ll find it’s worth the risk.

With the explosion of the smart home scene, anything from a digital lock to a full security system can protect your home. Let’s say, for example, you have a 4 bedroom house and want to rent the rooms out separately. Installing digital locks on each of the doors allows for increased security for guests and allows you to manage it remotely. Add some cameras and your property is nearly fully secured.

At this point you may be wondering how expensive smart home security is. Although systems can cost thousands of dollars, you could have a simple setup for no more than a couple hundred. Most quality locks can even be found for around $100. Regardless whether you’re outfitting your property or not, platforms such as AirBnB and VRBO still do background checks on all guests to help give you peace of mind.
