When I purchased my first home, I was eager to get it insured as quickly as possible. That led to me requesting a few quotes online and quickly choosing a new policy without looking into all of my insurance options and riders. I thought my policy was "good enough" for me until one day my home was burglarized and a very expensive piece of artwork was stolen. I soon realized that I could have had it replaced by my homeowners insurance company if I had added a rider that covered it to my policy. I then put a lot of research into home insurance options to update my policy wisely. I know there are others who do not understand the importance of putting a lot of thought into choosing a home insurance policy, so I decided to create a blog to share what I learned about it on!
