Your time is valuable, so save it! Between shuttling the kids to soccer practice, mowing the lawn, finishing that huge research project that’s due in tomorrow’s political science class or just finding a few minutes to simply take a break and unwind, it can be difficult to find time to shop for affordable insurance coverage. Wherever you are in life’s many stages, why dig through the phone book when the insurance quotes you are looking for are at your fingertips?

How will shopping for insurance on the Internet save time?

1) ONLY ONE FORM. When you shop online for insurance quotes, you only have to complete ONE brief form. When you search for quotes by phone, you often have to complete quote applications for each individual company from which you would like to receive a quote – that’s A LOT of time spent repeating the same information over and over. Searching for quotes online eliminates that hassle. Fill out ONE quote form and let the agents come to you, rather than vice versa.

2) INSURANCE AGENTS COMPETE FOR YOUR BUSINESS. Shopping online for affordable insurance means multiple insurance agents will compete for your business. THEY call you. Don’t go around banging on doors when you can sit back and let someone else do all the work for you.

3) COMPLETE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE. Requesting insurance quotes through insurance shopping portals allows you to compare multiple quotes – putting you in the driver’s seat and giving you a complete shopping experience.

How will searching for insurance online save money?

Time is money, right? Shopping for affordable insurance coverage online saves time, so that means you’ll automatically save money and have more time doing things you WANT or NEED to do. PLUS, most online insurance shopping sites provide you with multiple, FREE insurance quotes. Why should you spend money on something you might not use when you can compare insurance quotes for free?

How To Get Low Cost House Insurance for an Old House

Friday, January 9th, 2009

Homeowners looking for affordable house insurance for an old house will have to look a little harder than homeowners purchasing new homes. However, low cost quotes are out there!

To find them, you need to go online to an insurance comparison website.

Benefits of Going Online

Yes, you can ask your friends and neighbors with older homes who their insurance is with. You can ask your mortgage company for recommendations. You can call around to every insurance agent in town and try to convince them to cover your home.

In short, you can spend a lot of time looking for house insurance for an old house. But if your home was built before the 1950s, you already know – or you will soon learn – that some insurance companies just won’t offer you coverage.

Want to save all that time and effort? An insurance comparison website can automatically weed out the companies that won’t insure you, giving you quick quotes from viable companies.

In addition, since you will get several quotes, you’ll be able to compare them and choose the policy that’s best for you.

Choosing a Policy

Some special considerations you need to consider when purchasing a homeowners policy for an older home include:

* Whether the policy will replace your home with new construction or with historically accurate materials and designs. If your home is merely old, new construction may be fine with you.

But if your home is of historic value, you may have to pay extra for a “replacement in kind” policy. Such a policy ensures that the workmanship and materials used to rebuild your home will restore it’s historic nature.

* Whether the policy requires you update your renovate the wiring, plumbing, heating, and other systems within a certain time period or the insurance policy will be cancelled To help keep your premium as low as possible, consider setting a high deductible. Also find out if there are any discounts you qualify for, such as an auto-home discount or a discount for installing fire extinguishers and other safety systems.
