Property Management Mastermind Show

#83 John Higgins with Steady Marketplace

Oct 09, 2019 by Brad Larsen

Property Management Mastermind welcomes John Higgins to the show. John is the Co-Founder and CEO of Steady. They offer a customized insurance product to landlords and property owners to offset the cost when tenants default on their leases. It is in 35 states right now, and they are working on adding the remaining states as quickly as possible.

John discusses how their product can be monetized, how it is being offered, and whom the product is designed to benefit. He talks about how easy it is to implement this insurance, the technology behind the pricing, and how to find out who underwrites it for them.

If you are looking for a new way to offset the risk that is hardwired in the property management industry, this is the episode for you. Get a pen and paper ready because you will want to jot down some of the high points of this conversation.
