Long Term Leased or Landlord Properties
Landlord properties are nothing new and this is reflected in a mature insurance market. If you are not shopping your landlord insurance policy regularly, you may be doing your cashflow a disservice. Let us find the best policy for you.
Vacation or Short-Term Rentals
AirBNB or HomeAway, anyone? If you're considering renting your investment property on a Vacation or Short-Term Lease basis, be sure to select the correct insurance policy. Foremost Insurance, one of the carriers we represent, offers a competitive product.
Vacant Property or Home
Looking to flip a property with minimal rehab? Maybe it's your 1st flip? Maybe your 50th? Vacant Property Insurance is popular for Real Estate investors. As the name implies, this type of insurance covers properties that are vacant or unoccupied. Light rehab such as roof replacement and appliance upgrades is allowed in these policies. Check out Foremost Insurance's Vacant Home product.
Builders Risk insurance policies also cover properties that are vacant or unoccupied, similar to the Vacant Property policies. However, these properties require more rehab than your run-of-the-mill flip. Updates such as adding square footage or a floor, knocking down or repairing load bearing walls, and foundation work require Builders Risk policies. Homeowners will note that these properties are required for home renovations as well as house flips.
