It is sincere advice, very sincere. Let’s examine the issue rationally and starting from a simple premise: there are two ways to enhance and protect your real estate investment. The first is to increase the profitability of the property and the second is to minimize risks. Below Yarmoloy Group experts will analyze both aspects to explain why, if you are an investor, you should ensure your home with home insurance.
1. Increase Profitability
Without a doubt, it is what we all look for when we invest in… whatever. In the case of a real estate property, the most important thing is to know the market well, that is, to be aware of possible price variations in your area, as well as to obtain updated data on the profitability that your home can generate both in the short and long-term.
Knowing these two factors will allow us to develop an appropriate strategy, which directs our attention to get the most out of our investment. In fact, once these two aspects are clarified, we can value our property with an appropriate price and be much more effective in our sales.
Moreover, here comes a golden rule: if you do not have the knowledge or the time necessary to carry out this operation as the case deserves it, the most convenient thing is to have expert advisors to help you. Remember that every investment is the result of a series of delicate and important decisions, the success of which will depend on the care with which you proceed at all times.
The cost of an advisor is part of the investment and perhaps one of the best ways to boost it. We know that it is common to see the advisor as an expense, but an expert knows how to increase the profitability of the real estate operation knows how to reduce worries, and knows how to minimize risks. We reiterate this concept: collaborating with an advisor is not an expense; it is part of the investment.
2. Minimize Risk With Home Insurance
Many owners often ask us the following: ‘Why am I going to ensure my property with home insurance if, totally, I am going to sell it and in a few months it will no longer be mine?’ Let us tell you that thinking like this is a true high-risk sport.
Why? The answer is simple and can be summed up in two words: undesirable unforeseen events. You must remember that a series of unfortunate events can always occur. Your property can lose all its value from one day to the next, something sad but very true. The solution? Good home insurance.
Home insurance will allow you to minimize these possible losses at a very low cost, compared to the amount of the real estate operation. In addition, what does the price of home insurance depend on?
Among other factors, it will depend on whether your home has furniture or not, whether you have recently renovated the home, etc. A real estate advisor can help you choose the most appropriate home insurance and discard the home insurance you do not need, to get good protection at the best price.
In summary: if you are a real estate investor, we wholeheartedly advise you to take out home insurance. In this way, you will be protecting your investment against all those unforeseen events that, unbelievably, can occur at the least expected moment.
