Do You Need Renter’s Insurance?

November 16, 2013 in Blog

We strongly suggest each and everyone of our residents to obtain sufficient renter’s insurance before they move into one of our homes. 

 

Coverage

  • Renters insurance can provide coverage for items and incidents inside and outside of an apartment or rental house. Renters are usually aware that belongings stolen from their homes could be covered by renters insurance, but fewer may be aware that items stolen from their vehicles could be covered as well. A renter whose child floods an apartment bathroom by leaving water running in a bathtub would likely end up paying out of pocket for the damage caused by the incident without renters insurance. That’s because landlords’ insurance policies usually cover damage to their buildings if the damage isn’t caused by a tenant.

Injuries

  • People who have renters insurance are usually covered for accidents inside their homes in which visitors are injured. This can be especially important if you throw parties or frequently have guests in your home. Policies usually include some no-fault medical coverage for guests. No-fault coverage means policyholders don’t have to wait for a court decision to determine who’s liable for an in-home accident before claiming the coverage provided by their renters insurance.

Types

  • An insurer will probably offer one of two ways to cover your belongings with renters insurance. A cash-value policy is usually the cheaper option, but the policy’s payout for any of your belongings that need to be replaced will be based on how much the items have depreciated since they were purchased. A replacement-cost policy will cover the replacement of your belongings at current costs despite their value. Estimated costs for renters insurance policies range from $10 to $20 per month.

Limits

  • You may need extra coverage if you own expensive jewelry, high-end electronics or other pricey items. Basic renters insurance policies include reimbursement limits. For instance, you may own a necklace that’s worth several thousand dollars, but a basic policy can limit your reimbursement amount for it if it’s stolen no matter how much it’s worth. The cost of extra coverage may significantly increase the monthly premium you pay for renters insurance. Understand how much more your insurer will charge for additional coverage before you agree to purchase it.

 

It is NOT your landlord’s responsibility to cover the cost of your belongings or to pay for items that are damaged or stolen by others. If you want to be sure you are covered, you should purchase renter’s insurance.

- First, check with your parent’s Insurance Agent, many home owner insurance policies provide coverage to children temporarily living away from home. If you are not covered then call several agents to get quotes on coverage..Is

- There are many types of renter’s insurance; make sure you get the amount of protection you think you’ll need. Some policies will protect from fire, theft, AND flood, while others will limit your payments to certain types of losses.

                                              MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT TYPE OF PROTECTION YOU ARE GETTING.

- Some more expensive policies will pay to replace your belongings, while others will give you the cash value of an item at the time it was destroyed. For example, replacement insurance will pay for a new television, while fair market insurance will give you the value of the television at the time it was destroyed.

- Certain types of renter’s insurance also pay for the cost of personal injury on the rental property.

What are your Property Management Services?

October 11, 2013 in Blog

        Over the last 7 years, We have managed hundreds of houses, apartments, and condos in the metro Jackson, MS area.

Therefore, We have managed every type of rental from low-income duplexes, to middle class single-family homes, all the way up to  luxury 2500+ sqft homes. Which means, We have experienced just about every conceivable problem in property management you can throw at someone, and we have managed to successfully get the job done.   We are a licensed Real Estate Brokerage in Jackson, MS that focuses on Residential Property Management. Specifically we manage middle to upper income single family homes.  We have been focusing on property management since the beginning so this is not something that we do part time. We have developed state of the art systems and procedures that allows us to run our management business with a high rate of success and approval ratings from our vendors, owners and tenants. We are upfront and honest in all of our dealings and treat each and every customer or client just the same that we would want to be treated if we were in their situation. We are an Equal Housing Opportunity Company and follow all the guidelines of Fair Housing.
           
Here are some of the Highlights of Our Property Management Services Below
  1. This is not a part time or side job for us. Property Management is what we do everyday and plan on doing for a long time. 
  2. We own investment properties as well so we not only think like a professional management company but as an owner of rental property.
  3. We have a qualified staff ready and willing to meet the needs of our residents and the owners
  4. We have a sophisticated online based accounting system that is top notch. It allows our residents and owners to have 24/7 access to the important information that they need such as:
  • Allow residents to download a scanned executed copy of their lease
  • Allow residents to make secure payments online.  Also have the option to setup recurring ACH payments.
  • Create work orders For maintenance requests online. These work orders are emailed to the tenant and to everyone on our staff.
  • Residents can view payment history and maintenance request history and time log.
  • Maintain a full financial picture with complete general ledger accounting
  • Owners can run key reports instantly 24/7 from anywhere that has internet access.
  • Pay owners directly with ACH payments into their bank account
5.  Our video marketing system targets tenants in specific geographical areas in town. Using our “Attraction” methods, we have hundreds of people “raising their hands” to receive videos as they become available in specific neighborhoods.  This stuff took years of testing and refining. Because it works so well, we totally eliminate advertising costs, which the owners historically paid. Combining Internet Marketing Strategies with Real Estate is a very powerful force. 
 
                                                HERE IS A SAMPLE VIDEO THAT WE USE TO MARKET OUR HOMES
 
 
 
 
 
 
6. We generate 600% more responses than a newspaper ad using a little known but highly effective website for advertising rentals.  I know this sounds unbelievable, but we have tested this over and over again, with the same results.  Nowadays, tenants simply prefer looking for rentals online, rather than the newspaper.  We also post our listings on about 50 other real estate websites and send out the listing to our growing list of perspective tenants that currently includes 3,000 people.  We also include local school information on each property with contact phone numbers and websites.  We work hard to give our perspective tenants as much information as possible to make an informed decision.

Do You Sell Houses?

October 10, 2013 in Blog

Yes . We are a full service Real Estate Brokerage that handles sales and property management. All real estate licensees are not the same. Only real estate licensees who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®.  REALTORS® are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS® subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reports that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR® again.

Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime. Transactions today usually exceed $100,000. If you had a $100,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a CPA? If you had a $100,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be foolish to consider a deal in real estate without the professional assistance of a REALTOR®.

But if you’re still not convinced of the value of a REALTOR®, here are a dozen more reasons to use one:

1. Your REALTOR® can help you determine your buying power – that is, your financial reserves plus your borrowing capacity. If you give a REALTOR® some basic information about your available savings, income and current debt, he or she can refer you to lenders best qualified to help you. Most lenders — banks and mortgage companies — offer limited choices.

2. Your REALTOR® has many resources to assist you in your home search. Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised in the market, and it will take some investigation by your agent to find all available properties.

3. Your REALTOR® can assist you in the selection process by providing objective information about each property. Agents who are REALTORS® have access to a variety of informational resources. REALTORS® can provide local community information on utilities, zoning. schools, etc. There are two things you’ll want to know. First, will the property provide the environment I want for a home or investment? Second, will the property have resale value when I am ready to sell?

4. Your REALTOR® can help you negotiate. There are myriad negotiating factors, including but not limited to price, financing, terms, date of possession and often the inclusion or exclusion of repairs and furnishings or equipment. The purchase agreement should provide a period of time for you to complete appropriate inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase. Your agent can advise you as to which investigations and inspections are recommended or required.

5. Your REALTOR® provides due diligence during the evaluation of the property. Depending on the area and property, this could include inspections for termites, dry rot, asbestos, faulty structure, roof condition, septic tank and well tests, just to name a few. Your REALTOR® can assist you in finding qualified responsible professionals to do most of these investigations and provide you with written reports. You will also want to see a preliminary report on the title of the property. Title indicates ownership of property and can be mired in confusing status of past owners or rights of access. The title to most properties will have some limitations; for example, easements (access rights) for utilities. Your REALTOR®, title company or attorney can help you resolve issues that might cause problems at a later date.

6. Your REALTOR® can help you in understanding different financing options and in identifying qualified lenders.

7. Your REALTOR® can guide you through the closing process and make sure everything flows together smoothly.

8. When selling your home, your REALTOR® can give you up-to-date information on what is happening in the marketplace and the price, financing, terms and condition of competing properties. These are key factors in getting your property sold at the best price, quickly and with minimum hassle.

9. Your REALTOR® markets your property to other real estate agents and the public. Often, your REALTOR® can recommend repairs or cosmetic work that will significantly enhance the salability of your property. Your REALTOR® markets your property to other real estate agents and the public. In many markets across the country, over 50% of real estate sales are cooperative sales; that is, a real estate agent other than yours brings in the buyer. Your REALTOR® acts as the marketing coordinator, disbursing information about your property to other real estate agents through a Multiple Listing Service or other cooperative marketing networks, open houses for agents, etc. The REALTOR® code of ethics requires REALTORS® to utilize these cooperative relationships when they benefit their clients.

10. Your REALTOR® will know when, where and how to advertise your property. There is a misconception that advertising sells real estate. The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® studies show that 82% of real estate sales are the result of agent contacts through previous clients, referrals, friends, family and personal contacts. When a property is marketed with the help of your REALTOR®, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. Your REALTOR® will generally prescreen and accompany qualified prospects through your property.

11. Your REALTOR® can help you objectively evaluate every buyer’s proposal without compromising your marketing position. This initial agreement is only the beginning of a process of appraisals, inspections and financing — a lot of possible pitfalls. Your REALTOR® can help you write a legally binding, win-win agreement that will be more likely to make it through the process.

12. Your REALTOR® can help close the sale of your home. Between the initial sales agreement and closing , questions may arise. For example, unexpected repairs are required to obtain financing or a cloud in the title is discovered. The required paperwork alone is overwhelming for most sellers. Your REALTOR® is the best person to objectively help you resolve these issues and move the transaction to closing (or settlement).
