Attention Home Buyers. It is important to get Home Owners Insurance .

Attention Home Buyers !

It is important to get home owners insurance when you buy a home. If you are getting a mortgage the lender will require that you get home owner's insurance. 

Even if  you are paying cash  you should get home owners insurance . Most of the time the agent will advice you but if you are buying from FSBO you may not know about it unless you hire an attorney to help you with the transaction.

You can shop around for insurance. Sometimes there may be a discount if you get auto insurance and home owners insurance from the same company.

Here is a resource that I came across on Reviews.com .

Good morning Gita. Sage advice for cash buyers! For the rest, placing multiple policies with one company can bring big discounts! Enjoy your day!

Good Morning Gita - that is an absolute must.  You hear horror stories where disaster struck and the owner had not insurance.

Excellent information for home buyers, Gita.  During this time of the year it becomes important for buyers in FL (and other coastal areas) to order an insurance binder early because if their are any storms in the Atlantic or Gulf insurance companies will not issue policies.

Gabe, thank you for the information.
