 July 24, 2019

Commercial real estate professionals can have trouble sleeping for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s because they missed an important showing with a high-value prospect the day before or they’re worried about accidentally deleting or losing all documents related to a property, there are plenty of things that keep CRE pros up at night.

Commercial property insurance is one of them.

In fact, insurance can be a management nightmare that grows with a CRE pro’s portfolio. The good news is that streamlining this process can help a CRE pro get back to doing what they love. Let’s take a look at commercial property insurance and how CRE software can help reduce management time and errors.

A Look At Commercial Property Insurance 

The more properties in your portfolio, the more insurance coverage you have to worry about. It’s not just the properties, either. There’s asset management for all of these properties as well. All these assets have their own values. Specific types of assets also may have important details like type, model, serial number and other information that needs to be documented for insurance purposes.

Head spinning yet?

We haven’t even talked about maintenance. Not only is there maintenance required for both the property and its assets, you have to keep track of the equipment required for maintenance. Improper inspections and maintenance issues can lead to liability concerns — especially for older properties. Finally, there are insurance renewal dates and coverage options to worry about.

How CRE Software Helps with Insurance

The good news is that commercial property insurance like Quarem can tremendously reduce your insurance management time and help prevent major insurance errors. Here are a few ways Quarem significantly helps with commercial property insurance:
