Today we’re going to talk about some tips for the first-time homebuyer.


It’s an exciting and stressful time, you want to find the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood. Right? So, you’re going to do things like apply for a mortgage. That means they’re going to check your credit. Yep, you’re going to get a credit score hit on your credit, but you’ve been getting it in good shape all these years, so now it’s time. You’re going to apply for a mortgage and you’re going to try to find a good mortgage company.


An inspector. When you purchase the home, you’re going to need an inspector to inspect the home to make sure it’s solid.


The thing about all these things you’re going to be doing, I would trust a local person that you know that has experience with inspectors or mortgage companies, insurance agencies, and that sort of thing. On the insurance end of it, do not skimp on the insurance. Do not buy price and price alone. There are several factors that will come into play with your homeowners insurance.

It could be:

  • Age of the roof
  • The location
  • Any updates on the home, like roof, plumbing, HVAC, electrical, things like that.

You want to make sure to review all your coverages. Just for examples:

  • You’ve got property liability coverage
  • You’ve got replacement costs on your contents in your home
  • There’s going to be deductible options

It can always make a difference in your homeowner rate too, but if you need any more information, contact us at Pablo Beach Insurance. We’re here to help you. Have a good day.
