Tenant Occupied Commercial Buildings


It’s not about insurance, it’s about risk of loss.  What steps can you take to reduce your need for insurance?  Let’s look at the real cost of loss first.

It’s true that owning tenant occupied commercial buildings can be quite lucrative. However, repairs to commercial rental properties can be incredibly expensive, which will make it difficult to profit from your investment if you are not properly prepared.  When we were young, many of us played the game Monopoly.  Today you are playing the real life game of Monopoly with real money and real risk.  As long as everything goes according to plan you will be successful and win.  However, have you properly planned if something goes wrong?  As you already know there are many factors beyond your control.  The first may be tenants.  The number one unexpected that is sure to happen at sometime will be from tenants.  If you have a large number of units or have been in this game for long you have probably experienced many unexpected events.  Some of them are a nuisance, some of them hurt financially, and some of them can put you out of business if you aren’t properly prepared.
