Manage Construction Risks

Protect Your Real Estate Business

As a real estate agent, you’ve give up nights, weekends and holidays to stage homes, hold open houses and hold the hands of nervous buyers. Don’t let all those sacrifices go to waste. Plan for the most common risks you face at work and mitigate your real estate risk exposures with the proper insurance coverage.

Maintain Proper Auto Coverage

There’s not much you can do to lessen your risk of a car accident if you’re already a safe driver. As an insurance agent, however, make sure you have the proper auto coverage. You spend long hours in your car. You may even drive clients to viewings. Personal auto coverage won’t cover your accident repairs and medical bills if you’re driving for work. Make sure you have business coverage to protect your financial health.

Reduce Accident and Injury Risk

On the other hand, you can control other risks. Open houses and private showings each involve risks of accident or injury. Stage homes carefully, making sure that carpet and rugs are secure and don’t pose a trip risk. Make sure there’s enough room for people to circulate. Whether it’s you with just a couple or you have a full house of potential buyers, do your best to keep everyone within eyeshot. Enlist coworkers if necessary.

Take care of your customers and your insurance will take care of you.
