Frozen pipes, falling trees and cooking accidents cause hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage and lost profits for real estate investors each year. The good news is that many of these losses can be prevented or their impacts severely lessened.

The ALPS team wants to help you sidestep potential pitfalls so you can spend your time focusing on achieving your goals and enjoying life.

We do that by sharing seasonally-relevant tips in our blog posts, developing checklists and educational materials and introducing you to products that can support your daily efforts to prevent losses.

We also want you to interact with us! Post a comment, review a product and share your successes so the whole REI community can benefit.

To get the most out of the tools and information we provide, take the “mini tour” below.

Check in with us often for new blog posts and resources!


The “Mini Tour”

Blog Posts

The latest blog posts are front and center on the Home Page. We address ways to avoid frozen pipes, deter theft and more.

Articles that help investors and property managers understand the safety risks associated with real estate investing are found under the “Landlords, Investors and Managers” menu. The “Renters” menu houses information to help renters understand typical safety risks around the house and how to avoid injuries and property damage.

The Resource Center houses all kinds of pamphlets, checklists and action plans to help you stay current on property maintenance and warn tenants of dangers around the home. Help them keep their loved ones, their “stuff” and your property, safe. Any resources posted on the site may be printed free of charge.
