Homeowner’s insurance is a “necessary evil” that comes with owning a home, especially if you have a mortgage.
You pay it every year, either as part of your mortgage or when the bill comes in the mail. But, God forbid, if you were to have a loss, would your policy be enough to cover what happened?
Open houses and showings are essential steps when selling your home. It gives prospective buyers a chance to see the property for themselves and, hopefully, imagine themselves living there so they’ll make an offer.
But opening your home to strangers can feel vulnerable. Even with lockboxes in place and supervision from realtors giving tours, you may worry about your items and valuables.
