I am going to suggest that if you are getting into this business to be a landlord that you treat your rental business as if it were the business of finding, fixing, and reselling.

You need to look at it from the point of view that if you were to get sick tomorrow could you resell the property at a profit.

Some insurance companies are huge and famous and we tend to go with them because we feel that they are the most reliable since they are big. True, but they may be unnecessarily expensive. You’ll be surprised to find that medium and small sized insurance companies will make an equally good deal with you but for less. Make sure you look at several options in all tiers before you settle. If you discover that you can get a cheaper deal somewhere else, just wait for your current premium to elapse and move – you’ll be saving lots.
