Don’t Take the Referral
Lots of times, your real estate agent might have a referral for a good home insurance agent. Don’t take the referral without doing some research about whether that agent is actually a good fit for you. Sometimes agents are just trying to grow their networks.
Do Your Own Research
Make sure you’re happy with the company and the agent you choose. Do your own research about what you need and your price range for rates to make sure you’re satisfied.
The up-front cost of bundled insurance might be more than if you had your auto and home separate, but having an agent you know and trust on your side can make all the difference when you have a major claim.
