By having several insurance companies compete for your business, you'll be assured the most competitive rate. What's recommended when getting a home insurance quote is to get a quote from about five insurers. But, make sure those five insurers are higher quality insurance companies. You'll be amazed at just how reasonable home or renters insurance can be. Renters are often renting, because they don't have the big bankroll to purchase a home. With these individuals, every dollar spent should be scrutinized. Apartment rental insurance, for example, can provide for very affordable rates. It is not unusual to see renters insurance at lower than $20 a month. This not only protects your belongings, but also protects you in the form of liability issues. Because renters insurance doesn't involve ensuring the physical property, much like home insurance has to, it is considerably more affordable. At these rates, there is no reason not to go with renters insurance coverage, so take the first step and get insured today.
Consider the findings reported by independent insurance agent association, Trusted Choice, in a 2009 national survey: "53 million household respondents 'admitted they are probably not taking advantage of all homeowners insurance discounts or said that they simply did not know' about policyholder discounts they likely qualify for." The survey also found that the largest percentage of respondents, about 26%, estimated they save 6-10% on their insurance premiums by using discounts. In fact, many insurance consumers could be saving significantly more-as much as 30%, according to independent insurance agencies, which often shop on behalf of consumers and help them find discounts and compare rates.
Taking the first step in purchasing adequate home insurance, is even more important when you own a home. With home values still close to all-time highs, our homes are not only the place we live, but also our largest investment. Our families rely on the sanctity of our homes. With natural disasters so prevalent these days, it should be a reminder to us that we should have full home insurance coverage. If you live in a flood or an earthquake zone, make sure that you have either flood or earthquake coverage. Many home insurers don't include this type of coverage in their policies. If you can't purchase it as a rider within your policy, you have access to coverage through government protection. Home insurance protects against liability, as well as disaster. This is very important, as protecting you, your family, and friends from these issues should be paramount.
Now, this is all available to us, thanks to the advancements of the Internet. It is important to understand, however, that the elimination of an agent, means a bit more homework on your part. Things may be cheaper and easier by utilizing the power of the Internet, but you'll be missing guidance from a qualified agent. So, you'll need to take a look at what type of coverage you need, what specifically you need to cover, and how much. These are important areas of guidance that will be lacking, due to the lack of advice. So, it's important to do some due diligence, rather than just finding the best rate and going with it. It's also important to note that you should try to work with high quality insurance companies rated "A" or better. You'll more than likely be paying into a policy for years, and you'll want to make sure that company is around when you need them most. All insurance companies are not created equal, some will weasel out of claims at every chance they get, and that's why quality is so important.
