Avoid Insurance Mistakes and Still Save Money

Our friends at the Insurance Information Institute (III) list five common insurance mistakes people make when buying a policy.  Some of these apply to Homeowners Insurance and some apply to Auto Insurance.

While it costs less to insure your home for the real estate value, it could become an expensive mistake.  If a fire makes your home a total loss, you will need to rebuild.  The cost of materials and labor likely will exceed your home’s real estate value.

Instead, consideinsurance mistakesr increasing your deductible as another way to save money.

Choosing an insurance company based solely on price could be another expensive mistake.  Instead, choose a financially sound company that you believe will respond fairly to your needs.  An independent insurance agent can help you shop for the right company.

Market Watch advises homeowners to considers whether they need Flood Insurance.  Skipping this important coverage could lead to an expensive loss if your home is damaged by a flood.

Addition insurance mistakes include having an unaffordable deductible and being underinsured.  While we all buy insurance hoping never to need it, we can’t predict the future.  In the event you need to file a claim, you need the right coverage to resolve your problems.

Benzinga lists common, costly mistakes people make when buying Auto Insurance.  These include:

  • Ignoring discounts
  • Not paying for the policy at once
  • Keeping deductibles too low
  • Not bundling your auto policy with a homeowners or renters policy
