Between record inflation and extreme weather, insurance isn’t just a sellers’ market–it’s a captive industry. So, what can you do to alleviate some of the financial pain, secure your assets and potentially even profit from insurance?

To answer those questions, I’m thrilled to be chatting with Calvin Roberts. He’s an executive at Falcon Insurance Agency of Michigan with a unique focus in real estate risk management.

The reality is, we’re currently in one of the toughest insurance markets in history. In fact, the insurance costs were almost double what I budgeted for one of the buildings I purchased in 2022, with no sign of things cooling down in the near future.

If you want to know how to properly budget your insurance spend, de-risk your investments, and even turn a profit selling insurance to your residents, you’re going to love this episode. Enjoy!
