Hurricane Preparedness Resources
In real estate like life, there is no harm in hoping for the best as long as you are prepared for the worst. Afterall, it wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark!
All kidding aside, Irma, like her predecessors, Ivan, Frances, Jeanne, Charley & Andrew (and hundreds of others over the years) are one of nature’s most powerful and destructive natural disasters & much like the economic collapses we've endured, It only takes one to change your business and your life. In fact we rarely need to feel or endure the "brunt" of the event to be reminded that significant impacts can occur.
Over the years we've learned a thing or two about protecting our investments and have put the appropriate emergency plans in place. Often times that means making sure that all important paperwork has been collected and stored. Here's a few things you should make sure to collect and store:
- Insurance Binders
- Pictures/Video of current property condition
- If you own a rental property have a copy of the renters insurance policy
- Copy of Lease
- Digital copies of any loan documents
Remember if you don't have a waterproof safe, store all important documents in your dishwasher! (but you may want to remove the dirty dishes first)
