apartmentnewNow that we have discussed what home insurance means for landlords, what if you are tenant?  Well, I can tell you for sure it is actually a little different for you because you do not own the property that you are staying at, so you do not have to worry about what a rebuild cost would be or any of that.

However – what happens if someone robs you?  Well, generally, tenants need what is called renter insurance policy, for that covers everything inside of the home.  With this particular insurance, there are many different options that you have and many different policies that you can get, so you want to make sure that you read them all.

The policy options are generally range in expense so you want to find one that is going to suit your budget.

cold_callNow that we have talked a little bit about doing the cold calls, let’s go ahead and explore some of the tips and tricks that I have for you to overcome your fear of making them.  One of the first things that you need to do is make sure that you are realistic with yourself and set goals that you know that you can achieve.

For example, if you know that you can call fifty people a day and talk to them, then by all means, call fifty people but if you know that you can only call ten people in one day, make sure that you do that.  You want to make sure that you are setting goals that work for you.

Next, make a list of everything that you can tell your prospects about yourself, why you are the right person to work with them and what benefits you have.  It makes a difference, believe me.
