Got a call from our lender today reminding me that I need to get house insurance before we close on Friday. I totally blew this off.
I got in touch with the recommended insurance broker, AmericanHome Insurance (who shares the same name as our lender, AmericanHome Mortgage), for a price quote. The quote seems kind of high, $984 per year. I swear that our home in CA was at least half that.
I questioned the cost and was told that prices have gone up due to the past flooding and fires. Uh, that is not my fault.
We had to have something in place or we couldn’t close on Friday. I will call our car insurance company and see what kind of price they can come up with.
The new insurance is Allied. Allied is part of Nationwide (Nationwide is on your side). Hopefully USAA (our car insurance) can do better.
