If you are doing house flips; purchasing fixer upper properties,fixing & selling for a quick profit, your short term profit options can be significant. Insurance for this is not so easy. The following are some good first steps: Contract: A good first question to answer: will you be doing the work yourself, or hiring a contractor. If you are hiring a contractor, the best practice is to have:? contract in place with the contractor specifying Insurance requirements Insurance covering: Property: The proper form of Property Insurance for a renovation project is a Builders Risk Policy. This provides coverage from the acquisition value of the structure through the completed project value. It satisfies the requirement from lenders when required to provide proof of insurance. Liability: Depending on the work that will be done and who will be doing, and the controls you have in place to minimize your risk, you will need to have some Liability Insurance. Premises Liability is the basic trip and fall coverage should anyone get hurt at the premises described on the policy. This is a must, and very reasonably priced. Completed Operations is the best option for coverage, especially if you are performing major renovations including the envelope of the building that could result in future damage to the structure. If you have any questions regarding your Quick Flip operations insurance needs, give me a call. For a sample contract and certificate example, click here.

If you live/work in/on a building with a Fire Sprinkler System, you want to hear my interview with Matt Scarpuzzi, creater & owner of QuickStop Fire Sprinkler Tools. Since the mid 1940’s buildings of size and particular use have been built with an Automatic Fire Suppression System, or Sprinkler System. Early on, building owners found that the cost of installing a sprinkler system was off set with substantial discounts on Fire Insurance. Systems have proven over time to save lives and property from significant damage. Sprinkler heads deliver between 30 -100 gallons of water per minute. When putting out a fire, this is great. Once a fire is out, the system will continue to run until the supply line is drained, which can create an expensive mess to clean up. That’s what led San Diego Fireman Matt Scarpuzzi to develop the QuickStop Fire Sprinkler Tool. The QuickStop Fire Sprinkler Tool has been used and tested by firemen worldwide and saved property owners and insurance companies thousands in fire sprinkler damage avoided. In April 2014, Matt appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank. To learn more about Matt and the development of the QuickStop Fire Sprinkler Tool, check out my interview. Matt has generously provided an EXCLUSIVE DISCOUNT to our listeners. Listen and learn how you can save on your QuickStop Fire Sprinkler Tool purchase. For more information go to QuickStopTool.com
