A Guide to Homeowner's Insurance When Buying a Home

Buying a new home is a big deal! This can often feel intimidating or even scary to do. That is why we created this guide to help you feel less pressure and have more confidence as you approach this stage of buying a home.


First things first, you will need to understand what homeowner's insurance is if you don't already.


What Homeowner's Insurance is

Homeowner's insurance is a kind of insurance that helps protect you, your home, and your belongings from certain things, like a fire or theft. In most cases, homeowner's insurance also provides coverage for additional living expenses if the worst-case scenario were to occur, and you experience a loss that eliminates your access to your home.


Why You Should Have Homeowner's Insurance

Homeowner's insurance covers your home and other parts of your home in many ways. Homeowners insurance can cover your belongings, damage to your home from storms or unforeseen circumstances, and more.


Without homeowner's insurance, if anything like theft or a bad storm takes place, you are left to pay for all the damage and repairs out of your own pocket.


When You Should Get Homeowner's Insurance

When it comes to getting your homeowner's insurance, you should be looking to get yours as soon as you sign the contract on your home. Doing this right after signing the contract will allow you to find an insurance policy that best suits you.


It is often required to have homeowner's insurance before you can close on the purchase of your home too.


Where You Can Get Homeowner's Insurance

Getting homeowner's insurance is standard practice for most people. However, what's equally as important is who you purchase your homeowner's insurance from.
