Benefits Of Investment Property Insurance

Article by Adam Masterson

1. Risk involving property

People should realize just how risky buying their first property is. There are a few questions that you need to find answers before spending your money on a new property. The worst scenario is when you buy a new property with borrowed money and short time after the transaction the prices fall. Interest rates and a less valuable property will both be yours.

2. Obtaining quality insurance

Everybody who owns a buisness should obtain investment property insurance. The insurance will not protect you against variations of prices but will help you to get the money back in case of unusual accidents. Each property has its own risk level and the insurance fee depends mostly on this criteria. So, before deciding what property to buy, you should check yourself if there are any risk involved.

From the point of view of the insurance company there are four general criteria for deciding whether to insure events or not. 1. there must be a larger number of similar objects so the financial outcome of insuring the pool of exposures is predictable. Therefore they can calculate a “fair” premium. 2. the losses have to be accidental and unintentional from the point of view of the insured. 3. the losses must be measurable, identifiable in location, time, and be definite. They also want the losses to cause economic hardship. That is, so the insured has an incentive to protect and preserve the property to minimize the probabilty that the losses occur. 4. the loss potential to the insurer must be non-catastropic. It cannot put the insurance company in financial jeopardy.

3. Insurance protection

The most important risk came from natural disasters but some of them can be predicted. Usually insurance will protect you from the most common accidents but some companies require you to pay an extra fee for each type of disaster that can occur. Before buying the investment property insurance, you should check if there were hurricanes, earthquakes or inundations in the area in the last 30-50 years.

4. Kinds of insurance

There aee many kinds of insurance. The adjusted risk discount rate technique is combined by two kinds of rates. The risk-free rate covers just a few of unpredicted event and is very cheaper and premium rate covers lot of disasters or event human mistakes, but it is a little expensive. It is easy to avoid paying for things that wont happen when using the two rates togther.
