You need to make sure that you are covered with homeowner’s insurance but you do not want to have too much either, and this is a common mistake that many homeowner’s make. Many think they must have coverage for the amount that they bought the home for. If you paid $250,000 for your home, you have to take into consideration the land that your house sits upon.

Many think that making their deductibles the lowest possible is the best way to go, so that if something happens, it is less out of their pocket. However, having the lowest deductible makes your premiums higher. You can reduce your premium payment by around 25% if you raise your deductible amounts. If you file claims for little amounts, this raises your premium for next year when you could have took care of it out of pocket and saved the rise in your insurance.
