Bet the title of this post has you wondering what that old adage about the weather has to do with Insurance.
Brought on by Spring storms, March winds can mean anything from a gentle breeze to huge gusts to tornadoes. April showers sometimes mean flooding and those May flowers for June brides lend to thoughts of insuring your love.
Over the last year or so we’ve done posts on insuring your home, mobile home and even a vacant home. We’ve discussed binding restrictions and scheduled personal property as well as policy deductibles, endorsements and possible discounts.
One thing we haven’t discussed is a Builder’s Risk and/or Builder’s Risk Renovations policy.
If you’ve been talking to a bank or mortgage company about financing the construction of your home, you may have been told you’ll need a Builder’s Risk policy and wondered what in the world that is.
We’re here to help!
Insuring Your New Home
Purchasing a new home can be fun and exciting, it can also be fraught with fears, insecurities and too many things on your ‘to do’ list.

Don’t be one of them.
What are Binding Restrictions?
If you call for a home, mobile home, or flood policy or to add comprehensive and/or collision insurance to your auto policy and are told no because the company is under binding restrictions, it may confuse or even irritate you.

Tips to Make Your Move Easier
Whether you think of moving as a grand adventure or one of the most stress-filled undertakings you ever endure, changing locations is something many of us do at least once in our lifetime. We’ve compiled a few tips to help you transition a little more smoothly.
Last year we talked a couple of times about safety and travelling. We gave you some Hurricane Evacuation Tips and Vacation Preparedness Tips. We also shared Holiday Safety Tips, Fun in the Sun Safety Tips and Tips for staying safe at Festivals.
As all of these tips revolve around travelling – even though that may not be far from home – I thought it would be great to condense the above-mentioned tips into one, easy-to-find article.
Understanding Renters Insurance
You’re not quite ready to buy but anxious to be out on your own, and have finally found the perfect place to rent. Your lease agreement says you must maintain ‘Renters’ or ‘Contents’ insurance. You call your agent and purchase the coverage, but don’t fully understand what you’ve got.
Renters or contents coverage offers many of the same features as home insurance. Hopefully you’ll get a better understanding of your policy from this post.
Understanding Home Insurance
Over the last couple of weeks we’ve done posts to (hopefully) explain the basics of Auto and Life insurance. Today we’ll discuss homeowner coverage.
