Questions to Ask Your Homeowner's Insurance Agent
Play • 12 min

We all know insurance is important, even though we hope to never use it. Because no one wants to pay $5,000 out of pocket when they could have been paying an extra $2 a month. Enter, the creative insurance agent. Unlike 30-40 years ago, insurance brokers can help you find the best value for money when it comes to your homeowner's policy and covering any investments you may have as well. 

I had the chance to sit down with Brandon Ridder of Goosehead Insurance to talk more about the importance of having a clear understanding of your coverage and what is crucial to know as a first-time homeowner and investor. 


Some key points he made included:

  • verify water back up coverage
  • verify sewer line coverage
  • ask about roof depreciation
  • what is your deductible - at 1-2% home replacement value can be a big amount
  • don't hide short term rental or your claim may get denied
