How to save on your home insurance
You can control your insurance premium costs in several ways.
Contact your Financial Advisor before undertaking any suggested actions to see how much you can reduce your insurance premiums. Increase your deductible
Increase your deductible, which is the amount you pay if you make a claim. Make sure it's an amount that suits your budget and comfort level. Raising your deductible just a few hundred dollars could save you a lot of money. The logic in carrying a higher deductible is simple: it will likely be more affordable to pay more of the cost of a minor repair than to pay a higher premium over time.
Maintain and safeguard your home
Keep your home safe and maintained properly. Ensure you have a working
smoke alarm, maintain heating and other systems regularly and inspect your property for potential trouble areas. Buy all coverage through one insurance company
Purchase all your coverage through one insurance company. You'll reduce your paperwork and qualify for special discounts.
Think about insurance before making a purchase
If you're buying a home, you may discover the area you're considering is an area with higher rates for a variety of reasons.
