Understanding Your Homeowners Policy

Purchasing a home is a big deal and can be a bit overwhelming. More so, all the paperwork and details that go into buying your forever home. We want to make sure that understanding your coverage is a simple as possible.

Our responsibility is to provide protection against perils such as fire, theft, vandalism, windstorm and hailstorm among others. We also provide earthquake and flood insurance which are separate policies that can be purchased.

The purpose of home insurance is the security of knowing that your home will be rebuilt/repaired if damaged by one of the covered perils.

Each property is reviewed and assessed carefully, which has earned us an A+ rating with AM Best which reviews insurance companies for excellence in service and coverage.

While you make it your forever home, we’ll take care of protecting it.

Weekend Tips

The weekend is here! But given the current climate in which we are being asked to stay home, we wanted to remind everyone that you can complete many of your weekend errands and fun while practicing social distancing.

  1. Grocery shopping- Several stores offer curbside pickup in which you simply order online and a store employee will bring your groceries to your car
  2. Lunch and dinner options – At this time, almost all restaurants offer curbside takeout, allowing for them to keep doing business and saving you the hassle of cooking
  3. Appointments – Especially if they’re with a healthcare provider, all companies have live professionals that are willing to help you over the phone
  4. Workouts – Due to the Covid-19 spread, workout coaches have begun posting free workouts online that anyone can complete in the comfort of their home
  5. Entertainment – Film studios know that this is not a dress rehearsal when it comes to abiding by the demand to stay in, so many are offering their latest blockbusters on demand for you and your family to watch at home
  6. Friends – Check in with your friends via phone or facetime!  Schedule a video call or virtual hang out with friends or family.

Lastly, if you must go out for necessities that cannot be dealt with electronically or purchased for delivery, please remember to sanitize and practice safe social distancing.  Wishing everyone a safe and healthy weekend!

Friday the 13th

Today is Friday the 13th, typically recognized as a superstitious day with unexplainable events and misfortune. However, many fail to realize the rarity and fun facts about this day.

For example, most horror films are released on this day and historically have grossed substantially over initial predictions suggested.

Fittingly, Alfred Hitchcock was born on Friday the 13th.

Every year will have at least one fearful Friday but this year holds two in store for us.

Let us know what you do to ensure a safe and positive day.
