RedWeek Launches New Stay Safe Page

While the only way to ensure a completely safe transaction is to use a licensed escrow service such as First American Title, our new Stay Safe page details steps you can take to verify the legitimacy of a posting or owner/broker.

A few of the tips provided on the Stay Safe page are:

  • Contact the resort directly to verify the ownership status of the person you are buying/renting from
  • Ask the owner for references of people that have rented from him/her previously
  • Make sure both parties complete and sign a rental agreement (PDF)

Trust your instincts. Ask questions. Stay safe.
