When you are buying your first home, there are a million things going through your mind. Your realtor is guiding you through the process and helping you pull together the paperwork, your lender is asking you for a lot of documentation of your current financial situation, you are setting up an inspection—and that’s all in the first week! Another important aspect of the home buying process is selecting your homeowners insurance. But how are you supposed to know what you need when you’ve never had to purchase homeowners insurance before?
It’s important to start looking for an insurance provider early on and to keep a level head throughout the entire process. Some say you should get a few quotes before you even put in an offer, so you can see the true cost of owning the home. Here are a few other key tips for selecting your first homeowners insurance policy.
