Apartment real estate can be a great investment. However, it is an investment that includes risk such as fire, hail, and floods. All the above have the potential to destroy your property and hard-earned investment. That is why you have insurance; to protect the investment over the long term.
Below, we have outlined some simple tips for making sure you have the appropriate insurance coverage for your investment:
Determine the Coverage You Need
As an apartment investor, you could be buying apartments for long or short term. As such, there are options available to ensure that you have the coverage needed based on what your long-term plans are for that property.
- What limits of coverage to obtain?
- What deductibles are available and the costs of different options?
