If you have pets, don’t forget to put them in your plans! If you intend on evacuating your home, do not leave your pets behind! Our furry friends can not survive on their own and many are afraid of large storms. It is up to you to help save your pet’s life. To prepare your entire family for a hurricane, contact local hotels and ask if the “no pet” policy can be waived in an emergency. Keeping a list of “pet-friendly” places will help you narrow down the best point of safety. Red Cross shelters accept all service animals who assist their loved ones with disabilities. Contacting local shelters will provide you with the best information about emergency boarding and foster care for pets in a disaster.

One of the most important precautions you can take to reduce damage to your home and property is to protect the areas where outside wind may enter. It is important to strengthen the exterior of your home so wind and debris do not tear large openings in it! You can do this by protecting and reinforcing these five critical areas, the Roof, Straps, Windows, Doors, and Garage Doors.

 If you don’t have flood insurance, the National Flood Insurance Program, is a pre-disaster flood mitigation and insurance protection program designed to reduce the escalating cost of disasters. The National Flood Insurance Program makes federally backed flood insurance available to residents and business owners. Flood damage is not usually covered by homeowners insurance. Check your policy to make sure your family is fully prepared!

 Getting through a natural disaster can seem rough, but by implementing these tips and preparing your disaster supply kit properly, you will find surviving a hurricane is easier than you think! If you find yourself needing any assistance or help, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Income Properties

There are multiple reasons why investing in income properties such as duplexes, apartment complexes, triplexes, and quads, can be beneficial. One is simply the renter’s income you’ll be gaining every month. The direct income stream you will be generating from the property is hard to argue with. Since you own the property, you could also gain an increase in the property value over time. Due to changes in demand, it could help raise your value, without undergoing any changes on the property itself. Another reason why others are investing in an income property is for the tax deductions. By having the ability to write-off multiple fees and bills that occur from your income property, you will not only be gaining money from your renters but also saving money come tax season. Whether you’re interested in renting a duplex, triplex, quad, apartment or single family home, becoming a landlord comes with both pros and cons.

income (1)

As a new landlord, one of the most important starting points is reviewing federal and state laws that outline your responsibilities and liabilities. Along with checking that your lease is fully covered, you also want to be sure they are legal as well. If you have mistakes on your lease, you will find it more difficult to litigate if the tenant violates the terms.The best way to make sure your leases are legal and up to date is by hiring an attorney to write up your contracts. A great way to network with other local landlords is by joining a landlord’s association. There you will be able to speak with fellow experienced landlords, obtain copies of laws and regulations, as well as lists of lawyers, contractors, and inspectors to connect with.

Central Florida is a great place to test your new landlord techniques. By choosing an income property that is closely located to the different colleges in the area, you will be able to easily find a tenant for the property. By keeping your prices competitive and always doing a background check on prospective tenants, you will find yourself generating a sufficient supplemental income in no time!
