Just think about that real quick: In order to build some assets for your retirement you have invested your money into real estate. You have bought a house, an apartment or a condominium in order to rent this out to a tenant.
Doing this would allow you to achieve two things! When done properly, you would build an asset that would actually increase it’s value over time and you would get paid a monthly rent for this property at the same time.
At first glance this strategy really looks perfect.
But, what if suddenly the economy turns down and you have a hard time renting out your property? What if the property would be empty for a few month or even a year?
In this case a lot of landlords might get into big trouble because one fundamental part of this real estate strategy is to pay for the house or apartment with money they have borrowed from the bank.
If suddenly the estate would be empty and no rent would be coming in this might cause some severe financial difficulties because they just don’t know how to pay for the credit.
Save your assets with an “Unoccupied Property Insurance”
In order to avoid a situation like described above I would highly recommend getting an UNOCCUPIED property insurance which would cover you in such cases.
