Your friends aren't the only ones checking out your beach photos on Instagram — so are the thieves who are plotting a break-in while you're away.
A recent survey by Assurant, a provider of property-casualty insurance coverage, found that close to 40 percent of renters posted about their escapades while they were still out of town.
The insurer polled 1,000 renters.
"It's not their intention to announce that the apartment is vacant, but wait until you get home and reduce the risk of the wrong person finding out that you're away," said Steve Hein, senior vice president of multifamily housing at Assurant.
"Two-thirds of burglaries happen while you're not home," he said.
Here's what you need to know about renter's insurance.
Close to half of the participants said they didn't have renter's coverage.
About a third of the respondents believed that their landlord or property management company would be responsible for damage and liability protection.
Your landlord isn't on the hook for damage to your belongings. You are.
While the person who owns your dwelling likely has landlord insurance to protect him or her in the event of property damage, it's your responsibility as the tenant to obtain renter's coverage to address your items within the home.
"A lot of people think about the TV or the computer, but don't think about the things you might need to replace in case of fire," said Hein. "Think about what's in your bedroom and your closet, your kitchen items."
Renter's coverage also offers some liability protection in the event a guest is injured in your home and then sues you.
A policy that will provide $100,000 in liability coverage and $10,000 in replacement cost coverage for your belongings with a $250 deductible will cost about $160 a year, said Hein.
