Robert Weinstein earned the Foremost Five Week Landlord and Rental Insurance Designation Certificate today.
For landlords looking for an insurance agent that understands the nature of rental property, earning certificates and designations within the scope of rental properties is essential work for insurance agents with a desire to work within the rental property insurance markets.
As a landlord myself, I know how important it is to work with someone that not only can offer an insurance policy for rental property, albeit an insurance agent that can help you be a better landlord in the process. And I’m not just any insurance agent that happens to be a landlord, I’ve bought and sold numerous properties over the years, including single family, multi-family, and commercial properties. That’s not all, I’m also a licensed real estate broker in Wisconsin, having earned my broker’s license over 20 years ago.
If you want to work with a professional who actually understands exactly what it takes to make it in the rental business, you need to look no further. I’m able to place coverage for you with various insurance carriers that welcome vacant, seasonal, rental, and other types of rental real estate.
It may be helpful to know that while others were getting caught up in the housing market boom from circa 2003 to 2008, I wasn’t buying, rather I was selling my rental properties. This is significant because rental property was/is my retirement program. While difficult to sell, I firmly believed that the prices and appreciation couldn’t continue forever. after selling all my property before the crash, I didn’t start adding rental properties until 2010.
I don’t have a crystal ball and I didn’t predict the future before, nor can I predict the rental property environment moving forward, albeit having a sense of the market can possibly help you avoid so many landmines others failed to avoid.
