Home Coverage: Accidents Happen

Buying a new home is an investment, and part of making sure that investment pays off is upkeep. Unless you live in a Hollywood sitcom, chances are every stone path isn’t perfectly maintained and the weather isn’t always bright and sunny. When accidents happen, it pays to have the right affordable coverage. The worst thing would be to have your dream home suffer damage without the ability to repair it.

Paying Now Can Save You Later

You work hard to make your home the way you want it. Don’t risk your home turning into an eyesore without a plan to fix it. You should always have a little saved up to give your home the TLC it needs to look beautiful and appreciate over time. With a great coverage, your pocket won’t get hit too hard when things go wrong.

The worst can happen. Maybe you didn’t want to get caught up paying for coverage you figure you’ll never use. Perhaps it seems too complicated to secure a policy. Life doesn’t stop for that. A storm rolls in that pelts your roof with hail, causing a leak to meander into your living room. A neighborhood kid aims badly during their pick-up baseball game in the cul de sac and breaks your window. A new driver accidentally backs into your front porch.

Little incidences can add up to big repairs and it can all feel out of control. That minor repair you were saving up for? Well, now there are three more just like it. How do you choose when all the repairs are equally important and affecting your home?

Invest in Good Coverage

The easier solution to life’s little nicks and dents, and the not-so-little mishaps that take place for no reason? Stay covered. Stay in charge of your home’s finances. Make sure you can treat your home well. Keep up the maintenance on your house and you will have a beautiful space to enjoy for many years. Maintain it, so you can pass it along to your kids for future generations to enjoy.

It might seem like a big expense, but it can save you thousands of dollars when you need it most. Life is unpredictable. Unexpected storms, accidents and natural wear and tear can mean the difference between a beautiful home and a home in disrepair. Investing now in good coverage is not only good for your home; it’s good for your family and your future.

Don’t Wait to Learn from Experience

If you’re still dubious, let us recount this scenario of a married couple who quickly divorced after the birth of their second child. She kept the house, and that meant all the responsibilities that came with it. However, she was only concerned with taking care of her children: getting them to school, ensuring they were fed and comfortable and that they were recovering emotionally from the trauma of the divorce.

She didn’t have time to look into the cracks that had formed in the stucco exterior from one brutal winter storm or the splintered window frame. Nor did she address the porch pulling away from the house and the unstable fence post footings when straight-line winds from a tornado accosted her environment. None of it seemed important at the time.

As the years went on, more and more homeowner to-dos piled up from happenstances. She found herself resolving mold issues, reinforcing load bearing walls, and completing a list of other tasks she had put off for years. Her budget combusted to the point where she could barely afford her home. If she’d had the right coverage, she could have addressed the damage as it occurred. She could have stayed on top of her home’s needs and those of her children.

Picture your home. Beautiful, isn’t it? Wouldn’t you like to keep it that way? One simple preventative policy can help you do that.
