Insurance Questions for Your Provider and Your Property Manager

For most people, homeowner’s insurance is pretty straightforward. Since they’ll be the ones living in the house, they aren’t overly worried about getting coverage in case of an accident. In general, they just want to be able to pay no more than their deductible if there’s storm damage to the house or if there’s a break-in. For landlords looking for insurance for rentals, especially those with furnished housing, insurance is an entirely different beast.

If you’re signing on with CorporateHousingByOwner to rent furnished housing to corporate tenants, you’re going to have a few questions for both your insurance provider and your property manager. For example, did you know that a lot of property managers now require you to list them on your policy as an additional insured? And did you know that not all insurance companies allow you to do this? These two questions alone will leave you wondering whether you should find a property manager that won’t require you to include them on your insurance policy or an insurance company that will let you include your property manager. Let’s clear some things up to make it easier as you get started in the furnished housing rental world.

Should Your Property Manager Be on Your Insurance Policy?

You might think that your property manager is just trying to save a buck by getting on your insurance policy instead of picking up their own insurance. However, any good property management firm will have insurance of their own, including errors and omissions insurance. This kind of insurance doesn’t cover liabilities associated with the property itself, though, and your property manager is likely just trying to ensure that they are completely covered when it comes to accidents, errors, and problems with the property that could result in a lawsuit.
Ask your property manager about their errors and omissions insurance, as well as any other coverage they have, and you should get a good idea of whether or not you feel comfortable adding them as an additional insured on your policy.

How Much Will You Pay to Add Your Property Manager to Your Policy?

When you look into adding your property manager to your policy, you should ask your provider what this will cost you. Some providers don’t charge extra for an additional insured, but this is rare. In most cases, the additional cost is minimal, and you should have no trouble covering it with your revenue from your furnished housing rental.

If you are unhappy with the additional cost, you may want to either look into another insurance provider or negotiate with your property manager to split the cost of adding them to your policy. You may be able to get a slight discount on your monthly property management fee if you pay to have your property manager as an additional insured.

Property Manger

If your property manager cannot budge on their monthly fee or on paying part of the cost to add them as an additional insured for your rental, shop around to different insurance companies. Some will have no extra cost for an additional insured, but they may have more expensive policies or less coverage. Others will have minimal premiums on coverage but will add on a lot more additional costs. Weigh your options before you commit to any one policy.

Which Coverage Policy Should You Choose?

Corporate Housing By Owner actually offers damage coverage that a lot of landlords love. ARDP (Accidental Rental Damage Protection) allows you to have your tenants pay for coverage for accidental damages.

At $30, the tenant will be covered for up to $1500 of damage for 30 days. This kind of policy takes a lot of stress off of both you and your tenants when it comes to accidental damage of your property. After all, accidents do happen, but keeping track of deposits for short-term leases can be a huge pain.

ARDP will not necessarily solve your liability insurance issues, but it can make a difference in the policy you choose and whether or not you decide to add your property manager to your insurance for your rental. With CHBO and ARDP, your life should be much easier as a landlord. In fact, some landlords require renters to get ARDP in order to stay in their furnished rentals. Whether you decide to do that or not is up to you, but it could save you both money and anxiety.

DIY Property Management: Updating Bathrooms in a Corporate Housing Rental

How to Create an up to date Corporate Housing Rental by setting a Budget for a Bathroom Renovation:

In The CHBO Corporate Housing Handbook we talk about the importance of clean and up to date corporate housing rentals.  Remember when determining your rental rates the first factor is the number of bedrooms and the second factor is the number and quality of your bathrooms.  Remember your corporate housing renter is not just coming to stay the night, they are coming to rent your property for an extended period of time (according to the last CHBO Annual Report 15% say their last tenant stayed a year or longer) and these quality tenants are not going to put up with a dirty or out-dated bathroom.

Today, Karrie Kelly, a professional interior designer, will talk about renovating bathrooms in your corporate housing rental and making it work on a manageable budget…

How to Create a Budget for a Bathroom Renovation  By Kerrie Kelly, ASID

The New Year can bring a fresh start for your health, your wardrobe and your home. During the holidays, there is a good chance you were given a gift card (or three)—what better way to spend your new plastic than on a property renovation project? We love planning renovations for the New Year because it’s a great way to start the year on the right foot, for either your own home or your rental unit.

One of our favorite rooms to revamp is the bathroom, but whether you’re planning on replacing the plumbing in your corporate housing rental, trying out aProperty Management new tile or just adding a few accessories and design elements for your future tenants, budgeting can be tricky. Gift cards are an effective strategy for balancing your renovation budget. If you’re using a contractor, they’re a way to keep an eye on how much is being spent, and on what. And you can better track your spending if you’re going it alone, too!

Here are a few ways to refresh your corporate housing rental bathroom for 2016, while working within a budget.

Budget with Gift Cards

When budgeting for a new project, it’s important to take into consideration different elements of the remodel:

Are you paying for labor fees? If so, consider that an unavoidable cost. Work out a budget early to justify what you can spend. More often than not, a labor cost percentage is given before the project begins, so it’s easy to craft a Fixinf tab in corporate rentalworking budget after you speak with your contractor.

Are you doing this alone? There are always pros and cons when tackling a DIY project. First, you have complete and total control over the budget and the resources. You also have the final say when it comes to the finished look and how you want to spend your money. However, it can be tricky to navigate a project you’ve never taken on before. Weigh your options carefully before deciding on going it alone.

Where are you getting supplies? If you’re headed to your local home improvement store, consider asking the helpful folks there for advice on your home project. Take their recommendations and do your own research to come up with the best strategy to complete your renovation. Oftentimes, you can find sales or discounted products and services when you do a little extra research!

What about unforeseen costs? Whether you suddenly need to change the showerhead or gut the sink, unforeseen costs are always hidden away in home projects. Make sure you leave a little breathing room in your budget for cleaning materials, extra tools and supplies, and upgrades that might have to be made. Having extra cushion in a budget is always a good idea—better safe than sorry!

All of these questions are important to ask yourself before setting foot in a home improvement store. To keep yourself within budget, use a prepaid gift card with an allotted amount. Better yet, use several gift cards dedicated to different sections of the remodel, like your shower, cabinetry or bathroom vanity.

Using gift cards for remodels helps you track spending and stay on course with the project. For instance, if you know you want to retile your shower, you will need money for tile, grout and cleaning supplies—and that’s it. By loading a gift card with a prepaid amount that’s just enough for those items, you avoid splurging on a different tile or extra accessories you don’t need when it’s time to make the purchase. Some gift cards are also replaceable when lost or stolen, and most don’t carry expiration dates, so your bathroom remodel project can be accomplished at your pace.

Budget-Friendly Bathroom

Once you’ve sorted out how much money you’re willing to spend, and on what, you can move on to the fun part: remodeling the bathroom! If you’re looking for a simple and inexpensive upgrade, choose quick and easy projects like swapping cabinet knobs and pulls or switching hardware like faucets and shower heaCorporate Housing bathroomds. For 2016, we’re predicting a trend in geometric and angular designs, so choose a faucet with sharp angles and extra shine for an updated look.

Ready for a bigger project? Take on tiling or painting (or both) to hit the refresh button on your rental unit. Choose paint colors in soft neutrals to create a serene escape, and tile in clean, geometric patterns to balance the design.

When to Splurge

If you’ve stuck to your budget and completed your bathroom remodel, but are still looking for a little extra “oomph,” splurge on instant style-boosting accessories. Our favorite way to spruce up any space is with extra color. Search for hand towels and bath towels in a bold navy blue to add depth to your newly updated bathroom, or add greenery or flowers. Bathrooms rarely get the royal treatment when it comes to fresh plants, so make sure to pot your favorite flowers or house plant in a pretty container to instantly round out the look.

Whether you’re looking to revamp your entire rental bathroom or just want to update with a few accessories, use gift cards to plan your budget, and then stick to it! Happy New Year, and best of luck in your 2016 projects.

Real Estate Investing: The Lottery Backup Plan

Real Estate Investing: The Lottery Backup Plan – just in case you didn’t win!

I know we were all a little surprised last week when we didn’t win the billion dollar lottery.  The great news is we have other options for building our wealth that don’t have Real Estate Investor to include luck and unachievable odds.  Since I get to talk a lot about real estate investing I thought I could share a few of those ideas with you…

If we could all win the lottery the reality is we probably would not be in the market for investment real estate. However, since the odds of winning the lottery are incredibly low, it would be good to have a backup plan if you are not planning on working your day job for the rest of your life. But before you get started, you need to realize that being a landlord can be financially rewarding, but you will need to invest time, money and energy to get the results you are looking for.

Asking the right Questions

  • Why do you want to be a landlord?
  • What type of landlord do you want to be?
  • Why do you want to make more cash?
  • What are you going to do with the cash?
  • Do you want more cash now or in the future?
  • Do you want monthly income or a large future payout?
  • How does your real estate investment compliment your larger investment portfolio?
  • How do you plan to create a balanced investment portfolio?
  • How long do you plan on being a landlord?
  • How much time can you routinely dedicate to your rental properties?
  • What geographic area do you want to be in and why?
  • What type of properties do you want to buy and why?
  • Would you be interested in living in the same property as your rental?
  • Do you have a backup plan if you move away from your rental?
  • How much of your cash savings are you willing to invest?
  • How much of your other investments are you interested in transitioning?
  • What type of rental return are you looking for?
  • What is your risk tolerance?
  • Can you afford to loose money in the short or long term?
  • Is your spouse /partner in agreement with this investment?
  • Have you considered investing with a partner?
  • What is your exit plan?

Cash flow

Cash is ultimately king and whether you are trying to make the money today or tomorrow everyone enters an investment to make cash in the end. When you buy a stocCorporate Housing Rentalsk it is easier to calculate how much cash you made on your investment because you know exactly what you bought it for and what you sold it for and there really aren’t variables in the middle that make a difference. The opposite is true when you invest in real estate because there are lots of ways to count cash, profit and expenses and the way you calculate cash may also be different from the way Uncle Sam will want to count cash at the end of the year for taxes or capital gains.

When life gets complicated it is always best to go back to the basics so lets take a minute to talk about the P & L or the Profit and Loss Statement.

LINGO  A Profit and Loss Statement is an important tool used by appraisers and other real estate professionals who are interested in determining value of property used for income purposes.

Again, keeping it simple, to figure out how much cash you are going to make you need a simple formula based on cash flow.

            Total Income (Gross Income) – Total Expenses = $$ Profit (or Loss)

Yes, we told you the math was going to be simple, but understanding how to find all the income and all the expenses can be a challenge if you don’t own the property and haven’t been paying the bills. If you start with a general Profit and Loss form and fill in all the blanks for each of the investment property your are looking at, you will be able to best compare each investment property to another. By examining the numerous costs connected with the property and understanding the dollar value of each expense, you will be able to calculate the total expenses. And once you understand the income and expenses connected with a property you can better understand what you are willing to pay to buy the property.

TIP  Take advantage of your accounting software to develop a budget for your investment property and create a sample Profit and Loss statement.

LINGO  Net income is what the property will earn in a given year. It is calculated before adding accounting items like depreciation.

 Gross Income = Total Income.

Net Income = Total Income – Expenses

When setting up and reviewing your profit and loss statement both monthly and annually you will need to know the following:

  • Gross income is the total amount of rent collected.
  • Gross expense is the total of all monthly expenses associated with the property
  • Gross debt service is the amount you will on mortgage payments associated with the purchase price of the property.
  • Gain or loss is how much cash you can expect from the property.

Leverage  When thinking about leverage the idea is you are using the bank’s money to make money, yeah. But you need to understand what the bank’s money will actually cost you so make sure you don’t end up just making the bank money. When starting to look at financing your rental investment take a minute to ask the following questions:

  • How much of a first mortgage can I take and should take to ensure my investment produces the cash I expect.
  • Should I take a second mortgage?
  • How much money should I put down?

The bottom line is will the property make you successful and are there ways to manage the money you get from the bank to make you more successful. For example you may want to keep your first mortgage under a certain value to get a lower interest rate or you may want to utilize a second mortgage to minimize the amount of cash you will need to put down. There are lots of different ways people choose to finance their investments and you will need to think about what works best for you and this specific investment. Often investors will choose to finance multiple investments in different ways based on a number of factors including how long they plan on keeping the property and what they believe the economic outlook is for the next few years. Ask your accountant, your CPA, your real estate agent and even your friends to find out what they suggest.

Does the View From the Corporate Apartment Matter to Renters?

When you peruse listings for furnished corporate apartments, you’re likely going to notice that a lot of them include details about the view you get from the apartment. Seeing a lot of instances of this, if you’re shopping around for investment properties to purchase or considering converting one of your properties to corporate short-term apartments, you’ll probably wonder if it really matters. Sure, a good view is always a great feature for any apartment, but how much does it count for furnished corporate apartments?Apartment rental view

 

The View Matters – But Not That Much

Basically, if you have a great view from your apartment, there’s no reason not to use this selling point. People love waking up to gorgeous skylines and beautiful landscapes, and they’ll sometimes pay more in rent for furnished corporate apartments with an excellent view. However, if you have a great property in a safe neighborhood with lots of privacy and plenty of space that’s within five to ten minutes of a large commercial district, you don’t need a view to rent that apartment.

Just like most other features of furnished corporate apartments, the view matters but is not a deal breaker if it’s not spectacular. You can more than make up for a mediocre view with updated appliances, comfortable and stylish furniture, and an apartment with plenty of space to spread out and relax.

Setting Your Rental Rates With Your View in Mind

Just like any other feature, when you set the rental rates for your short-term apartments, you’ll need to keep the view in mind. If you have a stunning view, you can probably charge a little bit more. If your view looks out over an alley and some dumpsters, you might want to give your tenants a bit of a break on rent.

Basically, when you consider what you’ll be charging for rent, you have to look at comparable furnished corporate apartments in the area. Check out listings in your neighborhood, and you’ll be able to see who’s charging what. This will tell you if you need to give a deeper discount for your dumpster view or if you can go a bit higher on your skyline view.

Today Kerry Kelly, a professional interior designer, is sharing with us fun ways to decorate your home or your corporate housing rental around an Accent Wall…

5 Ways to Decorate a Coporate Housing Room around an Accent Wall

By Kerrie Kelly, ASID

Do you have a room in your corporate housing rental that needs a little boost? Perhaps you love the layout, furniture and decor, but something is still missing?

That something might be an old friend—wallpaper! With transitional style becoming all the rage, we’re seeing more and more variations of wallpaper pop up in homes across the globe. From floral and feminine to edgy and geometric, wallpaper has again become an absolute must-have.

We’ve chosen our favorite styles and patterns and laid out five ways that you can decorate a room around a wallpapered accent wall.DIY Design: Great Corporate Housing Rentals

1. Feminine Mystique

If your style is girly and graceful, consider the look of floral wallpaper. This whimsical wallpaper is both sophisticated and playful. Floral patterns are great for a touch of subtle color and work especially well to create a restful and rustic ambiance. We recommend complementing the femininity with modern light fixtures and green, organic elements for a balanced space.

2. Say It with StripesCorporate housing rentals: say it with stripes

Elevate your style with a case of the stripes! Striped wallpaper has an edgy sophistication that makes it a great solution for a much-needed accent wall. Choose a color that blends seamlessly between residents for a timeless look. Available in tons of colors and stripe size variations, this wallpaper adds an element of creativity and consistency. Especially suitable for a small space, further outfit the room in soft, solid pieces like a unique chair and ottoman pairing or a large, textured area rug.

3. A Geometric Jubilee
A geometric jubilee

What better way to spice up a space than with a fun pattern? Geometric patterns can be intense and intricate or sweet and subtle, depending on the print and colors you’re looking for. We love the way a hand-drawn look is curated through a subtly swept geometric pattern and cozy styling with cottage pieces like driftwood, mirrors and midcentury furniture. Bring the look full circle with metallic elements like furniture hardware, lamp stands and shelving details your resident will fall in love with.

4. Transformed with TextureCHBO Style: Transformed with texture

If you want your accent wall to be completely unique, take a peek at textured wallpaper. Modern and dynamic, textured wallpaper offers more flexibility than regular, flat wallpaper in that you can mask your space any way you want. Create an industrial loft with brick wallpaper or design a Spanish-themed plaza with an intricately raised tile pattern. The possibilities are endless with this touch-and-feel favorite. With textured wallpaper, it’s best to keep the decor simple and understated to let your resident’s unique accent wall truly shine.

Simple and semi permanent 5. Simple and Semi-Permanent

If you’re looking for a wallpaper that requires less commitment, opt for a paintable, pre-pasted wall covering. With this style, you can paint over the wall covering for a fresh look, and give it a good scrub between residents with its high durability. Choose a style that is simple and sophisticated and easily blends with different decor styles, depending on the resident.

Whether you’re a wallpaper pro or are just exploring your options, the right wallpaper can be an easy-to-use design update that’s a great alternative to a run-of-the-mill accent wall. From patterned to textured to artsy, there are endless opportunities to customize every angle of your corporate rental home. What wallpaper style are you looking for?

Albuquerque Furnished Housing – CHBO City Spotlight

With so many corporate employers in the region, Albuquerque is a growing hotspot for business travelers. The need for Albuquerque furnished housing has been increasing over time, and if you are headed to “the Q” for a lengthy stay it is unlikely that you will want to spend your time in some typical extended stay property. This is why you should consider your options in corporate furnished housing and furnished corporate apartments. Why enjoy a visit or begin your move to the area in a less than comfortable setting? You don’t have to, and there are plenty of solutions for you to explore.

Information About Albuquerque

The city has more than one million residents, and as already mentioned, is home to a long list of corporations. Intel, Sandia National Laboratories, and TempurPedic are but a few of the global companies with a major presence in this region. Rated as one of the top ten cities for engineering professionals, it is expected to face an increasing demand for furnished housing in the coming years.

As the city of Albuquerque’s website reads: “Albuquerque has all the elements necessary for successful tech clusters: research centers, an environment of innovation, low cost of doing business, a sizable population of scientists and engineers, low utility rates, venture capital, support networks, and a quality of life that’s attractive to innovators.”
Albuquerque corporate housing

However, as is the case with all cities, not all of the neighborhoods of Albuquerque are alike. Many different neighborhoods provide an abundance of housing options. There are apartments in the “Uptown Loop” area of the city and there are townhouses and gated communities within easy reach of the busier downtown and industrial areas. The thing to remember when considering furnished housing in Albuquerque is whether you want many outdoor amenities or if the city life is for you.
