Looking for a 4 month long term Summer Rental
DesertRat, Tue Jul 10 2018, 08:14PM

I have an older couple looking for a rental thru Oct. 2018?
For 27 years they have stayed in Big Bear at the Boulder Bay Condos but the Unit they normally rent has been sold?
Will most certainly consider all types of other properties to rent than a Condo!
Please advise.
Many thanks,
Lynn, the Hairstylist

Did you ever find something for this couple?
Their plight sounded very familiar as I have a condo in Boulder Bay that I used to rent out for longer term summer visitors. However, my agent told me that her business insurance changed her coverages and that there now is a limit on extended stays. No tenancy longer than 45(?) days - I was not given all of the details but I guess some statistician put long-term rental experiences together with normally-short-term and came up with negative results??? Over the years I only had some very minor issues - a broken lamp shade, a missing electric blanket cord, missing Pyrex baking dishes, etc. Bottom line, this rental agent would no longer make my place available to Palm Springs escapees who wanted 2 -3 months of coolness in the summer. I checked with several other rental agencies around the hill and got the same answer everywhere. So that made a big dent in our rental income and with year-round business off, we pulled the plug and no longer rent our place out.
