Have a swimming pool? Here’s how you can end the summer with extra money

Swimply is a new app that works like Airbnb, but you just rented a residential pool. Right now there is only one available in the Evansville area, so this would be a good time to “jump in” and make some cash if you have a pool.

The question of insurance and liability immediately came to my mind. So much can happen around a swimming pool, especially if you are having a party. According to Swimply, hosting through their service gives you a million dollar general liability policy. If that’s reassuring you and you’re thinking about renting your pool, here’s how it works.

You don’t have to pay anything up front to list your pool with Swimply. This one-of-a-kind service charges a commission on your bookings. Swimply takes 15% of what the host earns. So basically if you charge $ 50 an hour and someone books 2 hours, you will make $ 85.

Don’t be tempted to rent your neighbor’s pool! Seriously, you have to be the owner to list the pool. This means that if you are renting, living in an apartment with a pool, or staying with someone who has a pool, you are not allowed to rent it through Swimply.

So, do we have pools for rent in the Evansville area? During my search, I found an advertisement in Newburgh IN. Ocavius ​​has a “beautiful oasis of Newburgh” which rents for $ 30 an hour on weekends. Now that the city’s swimming pools are closed for the season, this could be a good opportunity for you to share your pool and maybe save for Christmas.

WATCH: Discover America’s 50 Best Beach Towns

Each beach town has its own set of pros and cons, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best to live in. To find out, Stacker took a look at WalletHub data, released on June 17, 2020, which compares US beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The towns had a population of 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From these rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida won’t be surprised to learn that many of the cities featured here are in one of these two states.

Read on to see if your favorite beach town has made the cut.
