Peer-to-Peer Leasing (Airbnb, HomeAway, FlipKey)

It's easier than ever for home and condo owners to earn rental income and for "guests" to land accommodations that fit their needs and budgets.

This new way of renting intensifies the risks for the typical homeowners. For example, a tenant steals personal property from a room in the "residence premises" of the insured homeowners. With the coverage offered through our carriers, theft for such property is covered under the policy.

Key Coverage Highlights Include:

A broad definition of "residence premises"
Protection for rental of other structures on the "residence premises"
Increased coverage for damage to landlord's furnishings
Enhanced Protection for personal property
Coverage for theft
$100,000 Watercraf Liability coverage for certain watercraft
Express coverage for tenant-caused damage to trees, shrubs, plants or lawns

Churches & Houses of Worship - A Lucrative Class of Business

Many churches and houses of worship need special forms of coverage, and your expertise. While a little work can be involved, this can be a lucrative class of business to go after. Getting your foot in the door may not be the easiest, so we've put together some suggestions of how to generate this type of business.

Personally visit the primary contact at the church to introduce yourself and discuss coverage needs would be a good start. Don't be afraid to ask for referrals from current church customers. They probably know the correct people to talk to at other nearby churches. Talk to friends and see what churches they attend and who would be the best insurance contact there. Be active in local charitable events. Getting your name out there will help in later contacts. Get involved in your own house of worship. It's a great starting point. Advertise in local charitable or deonominational publications. Your current customer base is also a good source of leads. Ask your current clients for referrals to their churches.

Our church products offer coverage for small community churches, start-ups, storefront, inner city operations, mosques, temples, synagogues and congregations of any size. We will assist you with questions on any coverages or forms that you need help with.

Call us today or visit our Church Product page for an application and product information.
