What You Can Learn From A Comic Collector's Home Fire
When I talk to new clients about why they're shopping for home insurance, I often hear "because I have to get it in order to close on my new house", and I think to myself...doesn't anyone get it?!? I realize that no one LIKES to pay for insurance, but most people forget what their home insurance is really for. Not Rob Snell, however. This is a picture of some of Rob's books and comics that were destroyed when he lost his home to a fire.
Rob is a normal guy - a business man and comic collector - that wrote a great account of the lessons he learned about his home insurance when he lost everything he owned in a house fire. Check out his story: "5 things I wish I knew before my house burned down." It's a great way to learn from someone who has already been through it, and see which parts of your home insurance you should pay extra attention to.
The best way to protect your assets from loss - whether fire, theft, water or anything else that may happen - is to sit down with a local agent and have a conversation about what you own. Get some good advice from a professional that's in the business of knowing how to properly protect you.
A local, professional agent may not be able to control the situations that life throws at you, but they can provide solutions no matter what the circumstance.
