PERIODIC HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE REVIEWS

 

When Home Values Increase, Should You Increase Your Homeowners Insurance?

 

It is commonly held that when home values go up, you should increase your homeowners insurance. Of course you want to protect your most valuable investment. This question has plagued homeowners and it is one that should be discussed with your insurance agent. When the value of a house increases significantly, you want to be sure it is covered for the full amount. If you have purchased expensive artwork or furniture these should be inventoried with your homeowners insurance as well. Discussing periodic homeowners insurance reviews is something to do with a professional agent.  Bogle Agency Insurance staff have years of experience in answering questions about all types of insurance coverage.

 

Does a Remodel Mean You Need More Coverage?

 

Builder, Contractor and Construction Insurance AgencyNot every increase in the value of a house requires additional insurance. If the value of your home increases due to the usual market reasons, such as supply and demand, NJ homeowners insurance probably doesn’t need to be changed.

But, if you have had a major addition built, or had a kitchen or basement completely re-done, this could impact the amount of insurance coverage you should have. Again, a question that needs to be discussed with your agent.

 

REVIEWING YOUR HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE PERIODICALLY

 

We all know home values increase over time. To be sure your home is adequately protected with the right amount of homeowners insurance, talk to a professional insurance agent. Periodic reviews of your homeowners insurance coverage are a good idea, and the agents at Bogle Agency Insurance have the experience and expertise to guide you. Our team based in Bergen County is always available to evaluate your homeowners, automobile, business, umbrella and all the insurance coverages you have. Our goal is to help you understand what you need and help you get it in the most affordable way. Give us a call at (201) 939-1076 for a consultation.

AUTOMOBILE SAFETY AND CHUBB MASTERPIECE

 

Expensive and Complex Automobiles

 

Lyndhurst NJ Chubb Masterpiece Automobile Safety insuranceWhether you drive an SUV or a Rolls Royce, automobiles have become complex and expensive. Car construction for fuel efficiency is lightweight, and the technology contained in the car adds safety protections. This makes your automobile an expensive vehicle to maintain.  Automobile safety and Chubb Masterpiece coverage go hand in hand.

 

Repairs Cost More

 

Although lighter materials used in the construction of a car make for more fuel efficiency, they also can make collision damage more severe. Complicated construction along with modern technology makes repairs expensive and challenging. Safety enhancements such as additional airbags, collision avoidance and parking sensors, etc., make repairs more difficult and costlier.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE

Questions for First Time Home Buyers

 

Bergen County Homeowners Insurance Agency Bogle Agency InsuranceFirst time home buyers should be full of questions regarding Homeowners Insurance. If you are purchasing your first home, begin by choosing a trusted, experienced insurance agency with a long record of customer satisfaction. Usually an agent is chosen by getting a recommendation from a close friend or family member. Real Estate brokers can also be of help in choosing a good insurance agency. When you have chosen an insurance agency, you can then sit down and discuss your questions and concerns regarding the coverage of your new home. Below are some items of discussion regarding what you should know about Homeowners Insurance.

 

House Value

 

First thing to determine is the home’s insurance value. This is based on replacement cost, not necessarily on the market value. Your agent will help you figure this out considering size and building materials used.

 

Choosing a Deductible

 

A deductible amount will have to be determined when buying a homeowners insurance policy. Going for a higher deductible will save you money on the premiums. If you choose a higher deductible try to have an emergency fund to cover that amount should you need to file a claim.

 

Are Contents of My Home Covered?

 

Homeowners Insurance automatically covers possessions up to a percentage of the home’s insurance value. This is often set at 75%. If you have a lot of valuable items, such as jewelry, you may want to purchase additional coverage. To make this process easier, take an inventory of your contents with photos or a video of each room in the house. Update the list regularly.

 

Are Floods or Earthquakes Covered?

 

Standard Homeowners Insurance policies do not cover flood damage. If your home is at risk of flooding due to proximity to a body of water or other flood peril, you should have flood insurance. Mortgage companies usually require flood insurance if the house is at risk of flooding. All of this would apply to earthquakes as well. You would need to buy additional coverage if your house is in an earthquake prone location.

 

“All Risk” Coverage

 

Ideally when buying Homeowners Insurance you want “All Risk” coverage. Most Homeowners Insurance policies cover fire, theft, and wind damage. There are many additional risks to your home and property that may not be covered by traditional Homeowners Insurance. These excess risks are something to discuss with your insurance agent so that you will feel fully protected.

Saving Money On NJ Health Insurance

Ways to Save Money on Health Insurance Premiums

 

NJ Health Insurance Options | Bogle Agency Insurance Lyndhurst NJWe all know that health care costs and health insurance are major subjects of conversation and consideration. In New Jersey health insurance is required! The rising cost of health insurance is a concern for most of us, so here are some ideas for finding ways of saving money on NJ Health Insurance.

 

Low Premiums Don’t Always Save You Money

 

When looking for a health insurance plan, the monthly cost is probably the biggest concern. The range of monthly premiums is very wide, and you will undoubtedly want the lowest cost you can find. Low cost doesn’t always mean savings. For instance, you might find a plan for $300 a month, but the deductible could mean a much larger payment out of your pocket if an unexpected illness should arise. Lower monthly premium costs sometimes also mean choosing from different networks of doctors and pharmacies. This could mean out-of-network fees. You should try to balance your monthly premium cost with the size of the deductible.

 

“Wellness Programs” Sometimes Mean Discounts

 

Here’s something to consider.  Some employers and some plans offer discounts for healthy activities. These can offset the monthly cost of a gym membership, offer policy discounts, or sometimes cash incentives for staying healthy and active. Some plans offer discounts for people who are working to lose weight or to stop smoking. This is a win-win situation where you save money and stay healthy.

 

Health Savings Account or HSA

 

There are government policies that can help you save when it comes to health care. A Health Savings Account (HSA) gives you the ability to save pre-tax income, which in turn help s cover co-pays, deductibles and more. Such an account is a “tax-advantaged” savings account. This means you can add your pretax income into the account, and let it grow tax-free. There are requirements and limits for Health Savings Accounts, so you need to quality.

 

Take A Good Look At Your Medical Bills

 

Medical billing is rife with error. Simple mistakes can cost you a lot of money. Always ask for itemized bills and take the time to review them. Ask questions, and request a corrected invoice if there is an error.

 

Talk To An Experienced Insurance Broker

 

Buying insurance can be complicated and stressful. Brokers or agents like the team at Bogle Agency Insurance have long experience, and are experts relative to policies, federal health insurance mandates, and money-saving possibilities.

FIRST TIME HOME BUYER’S CHECKLIST

What A First Time Home Buyer Needs

 

 

First Time Home Buyer Homeowners Insurance | Bergen County

Buying your first home is exciting and a little scary. Embarking on this quest takes time, resources, and lots of research. It can also create a stressful situation, so you should be prepared. A first time home buyer’s checklist should include a good real estate agent, a trusted mortgage lender and an expert insurance agency. If you have never bought a house before and are considering doing so, here are a few tips.

 

 

Have a Budget in Mind

 

Step number one in buying your first home is establishing a budget. You must know how much you can afford to pay for a house and what your monthly payments will be. Start off by knowing what the monthly income will be that contributes to the house payment. Put together a list of monthly expenses. Most experts recommend that you spend no more than 30% of your income on housing. This is a good guide toward determining what you can afford to spend. In determining these numbers remember that there are additional costs to owning a home over and above the mortgage payment. Some of these are maintenance, utilities, insurance. It’s a good idea to have cash on hand that can be used toward a down payment.

 

Find a Real Estate Agent

 

A trusted real estate agent can be a lifesaver, and their advice is invaluable. Don’t go with the first agent you talk to, shop around. Feeling comfortable with your real estate agent is important so you should interview more than one. Recommendations from family members or good friends can help. Your realtor will have the experience to answer all your questions and offer advice as well.

Your real estate agent can also recommend a mortgage lender. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do a little homework on your own. There are different types of mortgage loans and you want to find the one that suits your needs best. Be sure to get a credit report and have it on hand when talking to mortgage lenders. Once you have settled on a mortgage lender, try to get pre-approved for a loan. Showing a letter of pre-approval will indicate to sellers that you are serious about buying.

Another area in which that trusted real estate agent can help is buying first time home buyer homeowners insurance. You’ll need to talk to insurance agents, but the realtor can recommend reliable ones. Again, you need to do some research on your own. Find out what coverages you will need, and what levels of protection you can afford.

 

Find Your Ideal Home

 

When you are comfortable with your real estate agent, mortgage lender and insurance agent, find your dream house. This is the fun part, but it can be an arduous task. Don’t rush, and check out the neighborhood as well as the house. Find out about schools, recreational facilities, shopping, police and fire departments, etc. You and your real estate agent will work well together and you will soon be enjoying home ownership.

 

Homeowner’s Insurance Is A Key Element

 

It is important to have trusted agents working for you in the process of buying a home for the first time. When it comes to insurance, Bogle Agency Insurance has unmatched experience and expertise.
