Ever have a burst pipe in a rental property during a cold winter spell? Or receive a tenant call on a furnace break down at midnight? Ever visit one of your vacant properties during the winter only to find the furnace, hot water heater and all the copper piping “magically” disappeared? Do you find yourself spending thousands of dollars and countless hours dealing with these sorts of winter related issues? Interested in learning how experienced inventors and property management companies’ proactively deal with these issues? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then we'd strongly encourage you to attend our upcoming meeting where we’ll cover the following areas:

o Reasons you must winterize both occupied and unoccupied rental properties
o How both occupied and vacant rentals should be winterized and associated costs
o The differences between winterizing properties in Detroit and the burbs
o Winter related issues where you’re obliged to pay the “midnight emergency” contractor rates for repairs vs. where it can wait until the next day
o The types of winter related damages covered by insurance and not covered
o And much more …

Additionally, we’ll allow plenty of time for questions and discussion. So join us for this lively and informative meeting.
Hope to see you there!
