Insurance Tips for Multiple Properties

Great tip (summarised) from the Australian "Property Investor of the Year" Conny Torney (Your Investment Property Magazine, Feb 2009):

If you have more than one investment property, shop around and spread your landlords insurance policies across multiple insurers. This is because you may run into difficulties getting insurance later on, by having too many small claims with the one provider.

Nice one!

Wow, it's been a little while, but I'll tell you why:

I've been working on two new web sites to help out my readers in their investing efforts, and the work over Christmas has paid off.

I received my new business cards today, and by the end of the week, Property By Bess.com , my new consultancy, will be launched! So if you live in Sydney, and you need someone to look over your property (whether you be an investor or an owner-occupier who needs to sell for a better price), give me a call. I have several levels of report that you can order, tailored to your property style and needs. Last year, I got one of my clients a 60% rise in the rental return on her investment property! Can't guarantee that for everyone, but that's phenomenal, and it wasn't a particularly difficult job, either.

Another one to add to your bookmarks page is my much bigger site: Investing in Property Rentals. Very much a work in progress, this will take the more serious aspects of investing in rental property and look at them in depth, providing you with both information, and eventually access to providers who can help you in all aspects of your investing endeavours.

Stay tuned for an exciting year!
