Orlando is one of the hottest vacation spots around, but the luxury rental scene is convincing many renters to turn one of the most popular leisure destinations into a permanent home. In fact, Orlando’s population is growing the second fastest out of the top 30 United States metro areas, building on a population of winter residents who call the area home for half of the year. Maximizing affordability with options like security deposit insurance can help renters get the most out of this up-and-coming area.

What is security deposit insurance?

You can save your money instead of paying a cash deposit at move-in by using Rhino’s security deposit insurance. Landlords who offer security deposit insurance don’t hold onto your security deposit and instead use insurance to protect their property from unpaid rent and property damage, the same way as a traditional security deposit. You can buy a policy that on average only costs a small monthly non-refundable fee of $7-$15 per month.* For many renters this poses a much more convenient financial option.
