Ask about available discounts
2. Investors may not be aware of all the insurance discounts that may be available from your insurer. If you don't know about discounts that can effect your final rate, you may not be able to take advantage of them. Be sure to inform your insurance agent about any major repairs, updates or home renovations you've made to the house and property. Certain new appliances like an HVAC system could qualify you for improvement discounts off your condo's insurance rate. We can help you find the best insurance rate for your investment. Insurers can't always advertise al the available discounts as they may change from time to time. The more common discounts are usually already known, but their may be others available you hadn't thought about. This just means we have to find where they are, it does no harm to ask your agent about ways you can save.
Choice of construction materials
3. The material used use in construction of your property can go a very long way in affecting your rates for apartments owners in Texas. Frame Structures provide more resistance to earthquakes. Brick buildings can offer better resistance to high winds and flying debris as well as the occasional auto collision. Those who need Apartment Structure coverage in the Western United States can often pay lower rates if the buildings are frame because of the earthquakes there. Building your structure with the appropriate material for your state can easily save you 5% to 35% on your rate.
Customizing your insurance Policy
4. Your Condo insurance coverage can be both affordable and easy to find when you are working with an agent familiar with the risks investors face. You could save hundreds or even thousands of dollars on landlord insurance in Texas by comparing quotes. Basic form 1 dwelling policies are usually cheaper but may offer less coverage. Special broad form policies provide more coverage but may not always be best value for the money. The rule of thumb is to evaluate competing coverage, whether single or multiple rental properties or condo insurance, make the choice that makes the most sense for your investment exposure.
