Insuring Your Home

When we started thinking about buying a home, I realized that we had a boatload of work to do. I knew that we needed to save up a down payment, talk with a mortgage broker, and most importantly--figure out what we were doing about homeowners insurance. Fortunately, a friend of mine told me about a great insurance broker in our area who handled that kind of thing. We met with her to talk about our options, and before we knew it, we had found a policy that really melded with our budget and lifestyle. This blog is all about insuring your home.




Tips To Help Save You Money On Your Monthly Insurance Bills

Insurance is something you have to have, be it life insurance, health insurance, car insurance, or homeowners insurance. You have to be sure you are covered in the event of an accident of any kind such as a fall, a fender bender, or storm damage to your home. Although you do have to pay for these insurance benefits, it's nice to be able to save a few bucks on your monthly premiums. See below for some tips to help save you money.

Money Saving Programs And Discounts For Car Insurance

Sometimes, different companies offer money saving programs such as no accident savings. If you haven't had an accident within a certain amount of years, you may qualify for it. Also ask about savings programs or discounts for good students for the younger drivers in your home. Ask about other discounts including: carpooling, low mileage driving, multiple policy discounts, and any other type of discount you may qualify for. These discounts can all add up, so be sure to ask about any that they may offer.

Life Insurance Cost Savings

Before applying for any type of life insurance benefits, be sure you are in good shape. Your health will be checked, and your premiums can be affected. If you are a smoker or tobacco user, now is the time to quit. If you are a bit overweight, try your best to get rid of a few pounds. The better health you are in will only benefit you in the long run, but it could also equal some savings on your life insurance plan. It's a win-win.

Homeowner's Insurance Savings

Homeowner's insurance costs depends on a lot of things, such as property values, and your loan. To help save you money on your homeowner's insurance, talk to your agent about multiple policy discounts. Having good credit will help save you money on your homeowner's insurance as well. Be sure to make updates and repairs around your home to help save you money, such as installing a new roof or siding. Another way to save money on your homeowner's is to have safety devices such as smoke detectors, and security cameras that can help to protect your home.
