Charlotte NC Real Estate and Other Thoughts
A home generally appreciates in value between 3 and 4 percent each year, but not every home appreciates equally. While every market is different—and appreciation is naturally affected by factors homeowners can’t control—there are certain home features that create greater appreciation than others.
Realtor.com did some research, analyzed millions of listings over the past five years and here’s what they found:
There are many misunderstandings out there about homeowners insurance—misconceptions that can lead to expensive mistakes.
According to a survey by insurance marketplace InsuranceQuotes, homeowners tend to overestimate the amount of flood protection they have. Fifty-six percent of respondents still mistakenly believed that a standard homeowners policy covers flood damage. For millennials ages 18 to 36, the percentage rose to 67%.
Meanwhile, more than one third of respondents thought auto insurance would cover items stolen from their car, but actually homeowners or renters insurance would cover those.
Most homeowners underestimate their coverage for dog bites: regarding potential lawsuits filed by someone bitten by a policyholder’s dog outside their property, few knew they would be protected by their homeowners policy.
An efficient, well-managed move not only saves you time and money, but it also can make the transition to your new home easier and more pleasant for your family. Here are 10 proven tips to help make your move a trouble-free experience from start to finish:
