Buying your first home is one of those memorable accomplishments that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Once you have signed on the dotted line and taken official ownership of the property, you’re going to want to—if you haven’t already—think about some essential items to pick up for your home to make your experience of living in your home that much more enjoyable. Here is a substantial list of items to consider purchasing after you’ve bought your home.
Have you ever experienced a catastrophic event that almost ruined you financially? Windstorms or hail damage are commonly covered perils under a typical homeowners insurance policy. A peril is something that has the potential to cause damage to your property i.e. fire and smoke, lightning, explosion, vandalism, damage from an aircraft, car or vehicle, theft, falling objects, weight of ice, snow and sleet, and water damage. You may think that, because water damage is listed here, that a flood would fall under that category. Actually, floods are not covered by homeowners policies. Floods are covered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, better known as FEMA.
