ALPS Helps Keep Your Properties Safe

ALPS

Affinity Loss Prevention Services (ALPS) is your source for information and resources to help you avoid preventable losses at your investment properties. Any loss costs you money, but it could also result in serious injury, the loss of a tenant or a claim, causing fluctuations in your insurance costs. If losses are avoided, everyone wins!

Connected to a national insurance program, ALPS analyzes the most common losses among residential real estate investment properties. We dissect the cause of those losses and try to determine how they could have been prevented. After reviewing historical loss information to identify trends, we develop materials and seek out methods or products that can help protect you against costly damage. ALPS also engages Investors, Property Managers and Industry Experts, listening for pain and success stories and shares those experiences in our monthly newsletter and on our website.

We provide resources in the form of articles, checklists, access to discounted products and even a Property Manager Listing so you can find quality Property Managers near your investment properties. Do you have written procedures for regular and preventive maintenance based on the season and each occupancy status? We’ll give you a head start with seasonal property checklists!

Discounts Available on Loss Prevention Products through the Alps Website:

Below is a small sampling of inexpensive products we’ve identified to help you lessen your risk of two of the most common and preventable losses that damage investment properties – Fire and Theft. Use our exclusive ALPS discount codes to save when you order from the manufacturer, and ask your insurer about property insurance rate discounts when using them!

Stovetop Firestop

Stop Kitchen Fires. Are you familiar with your tenants’ cooking habits? We sought out this simple solution when numerous cooking fire losses indicated that some tenants might not be great chefs. Careless or inattentive cooking has led to fire-damaged kitchens, serious burns, the total loss of many properties and even the death of tenants.

Armor Concepts

Door Armor: Reinforce your doors against “kick-ins”. It takes seconds to kick in a regular door. If a thief has difficulty getting in quickly, they may abandon their efforts and move on to their next target. Thieves are looking for copper pipe, wiring, fixtures, appliances, and HVAC systems and will do major damage to remove them. A reinforced door makes a theft more difficult, so don’t be an easy target.

Tattletale Alarms

Protect your vacant or remodel with a portable alarm. Monitoring access to your property can be easily accomplished by providing entry codes to contractors and property managers. Any intruder will be surprised by the 95 decibel alarm and strobe light, encouraging them to leave immediately, saving you from theft losses. This portable system can be moved from house to house, and monitoring is set up monthly with no long-term contracts (unlike most traditional security companies). The system is also customizable with a number of different sensors.
