How things got started...
From a rental home and a fire, to an idea to help millions of people around the world.
Our story began when InnTown Stays Founder, BJ Allmon, sold a traditional rental house he had owned for ten years. He and his wife, Sarah, decided to purchase a new property within walking distance to their lovely downtown area and furnish it for short term stays.
After the house was ready, they learned that friends of theirs had recently experienced a devastating house fire. The couple was living in a hotel thirty minutes away from home for three weeks while still working out the plan with their insurance claim. BJ expected the process of dealing with fire remediation could take another four to six months.
So, BJ and his wife offered up their newly renovated vacation home until their friend’s house was ready. The friends talked to their housing broker, and within a week, they were back in their hometown and into the Allmon’s rental property.
“It was my first claim tenant in all my years of being a landlord. I was blown away by the opportunity to help a beautiful family in need and at the same time, significantly reduce the cost of the claim’s temporary housing expense. My wife and I also walked away with much more revenue than provided by traditional leasing or other short term stay opportunities.” – BJ Allmon

Numbers speak for themselves
Whether it's wildfires in California, flash flooding in Maryland, hurricanes on the East Coast, or tornadoes in Ohio, natural and man-made catastrophes can devastate homes and lives.
The increasing number of powerful storms potentially means more and more families will experience devastating effects to their property and/or homes. In the fourth National Climate Assessment released in 2018 on Nov. 23, thirteen federal agencies estimated that the U.S. could lose as much as 10 percent of its GDP by the end of the century.
In 2018, over 1,600 significant flood events occurred in the U.S., 59% of which were flash flood-related.
No one can stop a hurricane from happening, or steady the ground during an earthquake, but by providing safe homes and helping each other, property owners and insurers can significantly assist with recovery.
