Homeowner insurance is obviously very important. Home insurance is also very misunderstood.
You’re watching TV and an insurance ad comes on. A lizard with an Australian accent starts running all over your screen. An angry lady asks how you can drive half of a car. A duck starts quacking. A website tells you that is where you go to shop zillions of insurers. Is this any way to pick an insurer?
Not only is your home unique, you and your needs are unique too. Cookie cutter insurance plans are not the right way to go. This is why shopping for home insurance by price alone doesn’t work. Doesn’t this sound familiar?
If you’ve been reading my blog then you know shopping for anything by price never works. You do get what you pay for.
So if you’re buying a home don’t just check out the cost of insurance online. If you are a first time home buyer this is especially dangerous in my view. There are so many options and so many companies to choose from. What you really need is the help of an expert insurance agent.
I know. I’m giving you old fashioned advice. Sometimes old fashioned personalized service is the best way to go. It doesn’t have to cost you more.
Guess what I hear from my 1st time home buyers – they SAVE money by using my company for home insurance. Can you believe it? This is because Weichert Insurance shops 40-60 companies weekly and our insurance agents TALK TO YOU AND LISTEN. They figure out what you really need and which company will give you the best deal.
Maybe that’s old fashioned but isn’t it fun to save money? You don’t have to go to Weichert Insurance. However, do go to an excellent insurance agent who will do the best for you.
There are times the internet is the best place to go. There are times the internet is the worst place to go. Don’t make a rookie mistake on your home insurance using Google mobile. If something happens you don’t want an unhappy surprise because you bought the wrong coverage.
If you’d like the name of Walter Buschbacher, my Weichert Insurance agent, just contact me and I’ll get you his information ASAP.
