Why Buying Insurance Online is A Bad Idea

It seems like very day, we see tons of TV ads for auto insurance companies. This either can involve a cartoon, a little lizard, or even a perky little brunette. All of them advertise how you can buy a policy online. They advertise how you can get discounts for buying online. They advertise it like gold and glitter. In this blog, I am gonna go past all the excitement about buying a policy online, and actually tell you why its a bad idea.

  • The information they ask can be very hard to understand. Most of the time consumers enter in information incorrectly, which will give you an inaccurate quote.
  • Most companies, shows the lowest price. This usually means the lowest coverages.
  • Most quotes you get off the internet, are the bare minimum liability coverages. This is bad, because if you get in a bad enough accident, you personal assets could be at stake.
  • Most companies don’t include coverages such as uninsured motorists property damage, and also uninsured or under insured motorists coverage. With a lot of drivers uninsured or under insured, this coverage is a must.
  • If you have a newer car and has a lien or lease on it and its needs comp and collision coverage, a computer can’t understand this.
  • An online quoting system might not know if towing and rental car reimbursement is something you should or shouldn’t have on your policy.
  • Most consumers don’t understand what some coverages mean and what it does. When a consumer doesn’t understand a coverage, they don’t buy it. This could be costly, because a consumer might need it.

I could continue on with many points, but in conclusion, a computer can’t think, and counsel you into the right policy. Only a human can. When it comes to insurance, every person is different in needs. Only an experienced  broker like us, can give you advice and steer you in the right direction. A computer can’t give you advice on how much coverage you should buy, if its ideal to carry a 1000 dollar deductible or a 500 dollar deductible. It can”t answer questions such as, what if I drive my friends car, will my policy follow me to that policy?

Seasonal Property Insurance

If you live in more than one location, you should have your properties covered for any type of unexpected loss.  For example if you have a home in Colorado and one in Florida, both homes should be covered fully for all unexpected events.  There are many reasons for setting up insurance on your seasonal property which is a DP-3. 

A Seasonal Property is set up on a DP-3 which is a Special Form where the dwelling and other structures are covered for all direct physical damage (open peril), except for perils specifically excluded.  Theft of property that is part of the dwelling or other structures is covered as long as the dwelling or other structures are not under construction. 

Personal property or contents are covered under Form (DP-3) perils.  Losses to the dwelling and other structures are paid on a replacement cost basis, and losses to contents are paid on an actual cash basis to the insured.

Don’t let an unexpected event ruin your financial situation.

As A Landlord, Should I Require Tenant’s To Carry Renter’s Insurance?

Having an investment property can be a great return on investment. But on the contrary, you do have the management aspect. This can include maintenance, leases, insurance and etc. One of them being your insurance policy. In this blog were going to cover why your tenants should have renter’s insurance, or better known as a homeowners policy number 4.  If you want to know more about landlord insurance, please visit this link.

What Is Renters Or Tenants Insurance or Known As A Ho-4?

A HO-4 policy, also known as renter’s insurance, covers only the tenants interest. This includes the following coverage,

  • Personal Property
  • Medical Payments
  • Loss Of Use
  • Personal Liability
  • Other Coverages are available

So Why Should I As Landlord, Require  My Tenants to have Tenants Insurance?

To avoid any legal problems or losses from your tenant.  A Renters Policy has a personal liability built in.  If your renter were to encounter any legal problems or losses, she/he is covered.  Here are some examples of what could happen.

-A renter invites a guest over and they slip and fall on the premises.

-They could accidentally start a fire in the premises.

With renters insurance, any type of law suits, or premises losses are going to fall on their policy. If your renter does not have insurance, you as a landlord are going to have to use your own policy.  Requiring your renter to have insurance can avoid huge headaches in the event of a loss or legal problems. The last thing you need to deal with as a landlord is getting sued for one of your tenant’s actions. In additon if a loss does occur on your policy, chances are your premium is going to increase on next renewal.

How much personal liability coverage should your renter have?

All you should be worry about on your tenant’s policy is their personal liability.  I would recommend a $300,000 liability requirement and it costs the tenant $15.00 – $30.00 per year extra.  This for the most part will cover most law suits that a tenant could encounter.  This for the most part covers the average cost of a dwelling or condo if were to completely burn to the ground.  If you feel that this will not be sufficient, your renter could go with a $500,000 personal liability or higher.

How much does Renters Insurance cost my tenant? 

Depending on how much coverage the tenant decides to go with besides your liability requirements, it can run as low as $80 per year all the way up to $300.  A lot of this depends upon the renters credit, previous losses, and how much other coverage they decide to buy and etc.

How do I get Proof Insurance As A Landlord?

You should get a Certificate of Insurance or Coverage Confirmation from the company or agent writing the insurance policy. I would also recommend getting listed as an additional insured on the policy if possible. That way you are always getting notified on any major policy changes, but mostly if the policy is being cancelled for any reason. Just like the insured, you get a policy packet  in the mail with detailed coverages, and notifications just like the tenant would.

Please contact us with any questions or for any quote requests for both Landlords and Tenants.

What Is A Personal Umbrella Liability Insurance Policy?

When watching television we see lots of lawsuits taking place which could even involve you.  These lawsuits and advertisements thereof,  pay for a lot of airtime.  You have “Henry the Hammer” telling you how much money you can get for your car accident.  Unfortunately, you have a ton of frivolous lawsuits that are going against the insurance companies at which at the end,  drives up the premium for your vehicle insurance.  Unfortunately, it is the attorneys making the most money from this.  It is not the victim that wins, it is the attorney that wins.  This is why if you have assets, your life savings, money in bank, properties, you have to make sure you are protecting yourself from these attorneys because they will go after these assets.

Let us explain how an umbrella works.  First of all, umbrellas are purchased in increments of one million.  Our agency can sell a ten million dollar umbrella, but the average is one million.  Umbrellas protect you above and beyond your auto and home insurance liability.  Do keep in mind to qualify for an umbrella, you have to maintain certain underlying limits.  The United States average for these requirements is $250,000 per person, $500,00o for the total accident, and $100,000 for property damage for auto insurance liability.  For home insurance liability, it is a $300,000 minimum, this can include your renters, homeowners, landlord, or investment property.

Examples of how an umbrella will work:

1.  An auto insurance example:  you get into an at fault accident and there is one person in the car.  That person sues you managing to get a $500,000 judgement against you including fees.  At this point your limits have been exhausted on your auto insurance policy.  But you have wisely purchased an umbrella, so the one million dollars is more than enough to cover the judgement.  If you had not purchased an umbrella, your personal assets and estate would be jeopardized.

2.  A Homeowners example:  someone comes to your home and visits, slips and falls and sues you for $700,000 including fees.  That person wins and your $300,000 homeowners policy limits are exhausted.  Again, since you have purchased an umbrella, you are protected because you have at least one million to cover the judgement.

DO I NEED AN UMBRELLA?

A simple answer is, if you have money in the bank, own stocks, are a CEO, an athlete, a business owner or make an average income, you need one.  One easy way to figure this out, “how well established in life am I right now?”  You need one, but if you are a college student and don’t have a penny in the bank, you don’t need one.  A college student is usually lucky just to buy an auto policy covering the mandatory legal liability limits.

How much is an Umbrella?

The average price of an umbrella is $260.00 per year at our agency which includes two vehicles and one home.

Does my Renters Insurance Include Theft & Burglary Coverage?

I got a question recently asking if their personal property is covered in the event of a burglary or theft. This all depends on what type of policy you have. To put it shortly yes, it does cover it. As long as you have an HO-4 policy. If it is a fire policy, it probably isn’t good for you.

You can simply check by calling us, or you can pull out your declaration page and make sure your covered. Keep in mind that a deductible will come into play, if you have a claim.
