How to get Homeowners Insurance

You probably already know that coverages and premiums vary by insurance company. And that goes for all types of insurance, including homeowners. Of course, the best way to make sure you buy the right coverage at the right price, is to shop around. Get quotes from a handful of different insurance carriers and compare the policies.

Shopping around for homeowners insurance is a bit more complicated than shopping for auto coverage is. There are a lot of questions to answer about your home, both its interior and its exterior. Some forms get very detailed in their questions as well. It will be in your best interest if you have everything documented, that way you can easily refer to those documents during the process.

So what if this happens inside your house? What if someone sues you for slander stemming from a conversation in your home -- will your homeowners insurance protect you from major financial damage? What about libel -- what if you’re a freelance writer and type something that someone eventually sues you for, will that be covered?
