Looking for and selecting a homeowners insurance policy can be one of those pesky details that goes along with the home buying process, but the following tips derived from the 20+ years’ experience of Floyd Arthur and New York City based Carmoon Group will help you cut through the fog and get to the important details of buying the perfect policy for your business.

Determine Insurability
In order for a company to accurately determine a quote for insuring your home, they will need at least the following information to get started.

  1. When was the home built?
  2. How old is the plumbing and electrical?
  3. What type of roof?
  4. What’s the square footage?
  5. How many claims have been filed over the past 5 years?
  6. Where is the home located?

After you provide them with that information, their next question will be; what would you like the deductibles to be. Having a higher deductible can save you money on your monthly premiums, but you have to make sure you have the cash on hand to cover the added cost during a claim. It is best to see the difference in price at each deductible level to find a mutually agreeable price point.

Available Discounts

The majorities of people already know about the discounts commonly offered for having multiple policies from the same company, but make sure to ask about any additions discounts they may offer. This could be for things such as the age of your home, claims history, security features and several other options depending on your company of choice.

Review Your Policies

The housing market continues to fluctuate, especially in today’s volatile market landscape. It is more important now than ever before to ensure that your policy is staying up to date with the fluctuating values of your home, this will help you avoid overpaying or being under protected.
