An Open Mind Is The Most Important Thing You Need to Bring to Your Home Insurance Consultation
There are standard home insurance policies to be sure. Like most insurance policies a new homeowner can rattle off a few key points about their new home and acquire a standard policy. At Dern & Company, we would like your experience to be more involved so that you as the homeowner gains a workable knowledge about protecting what is probably your biggest investment.
You must bring proof of your pending purchase of the home.
Working knowledge of any foreseeable incidents that may occur as a result of common practices in the home. For example, if you are aware that your home is located in a known flood area, you should make your agent aware of this information. Don’t assume that the insurance agent knows your home is in danger of flooding.
The agent needs to know information about the home such as the built on date. If there have been major renovations to the home. If there is a pool on site. How many dwellings are located on the property of the home? If there are multiple dwellings on the property what are their uses and what are their conditions. For that matter, the agent would need to know what the general condition is of the main dwelling.
