No Standing Inventory at The Villas at Grey Oaks, Boone Homes Starts New Construction

Disaster Insurance: What You Need to Know

Prepare for Disasters with Insurance
Has watching the devastation from the recent deadly tornadoes in Oklahoma got you thinking about what you could do to protect you and your family if you were ever in a similar situation? The folks at the Equifax Finance blog are always looking out for consumers, and they offer some helpful tips on how to prepare now for the unexpected in a recent article, ““Natural Disaster Insurance Claims: What To Do When A Natural Disaster Strikes.”

The article describes four different types of insurance to be aware of:
·         Homeowner’s Insurance – this usually protects against wind and fire, but not against flooding
·         Commercial Property Insurance – this would protect your business or office space from a man-made or natural disaster
·         Flood Insurance – you may think that you are not in a flood zone and don’t need this, but flood zones change over the years, so you could be and not know it
·         Earthquake Insurance – the article says this is usually pretty expensive any only necessary if you live right on a fault line
