Any home that was built in 2002 or later should qualify for the most recent building requirements allowing the maximum mitigation discount on their premium. There are many factors such as where the property is located, beaches vs. inland as well as what type of structure you are insuring, wood frame vs. concrete block as well as the type of roof that was being installed at time of construction. My best advice is to make a few calls to various insurance agents and compare their quotes with the coverage they are offering. If you need assistance in locating an insurance agent or have any other additional questions or concerns you can always reach me at 904-548-3032. Thank you.... more
To me, this question is answered by a cost-benefit analysis in a specific situation. If I think I'm very healthy, I may choose not to carry certain health insurance policies, for example. Are we talking about homeowners' insurance? Are we talking about insuring a property for an amount higher than its value? Flood insurance on a property where it's not required?--Many people think it's a good idea to carry flood insurance for several reasons. What about liability coverage? What about life insurance on me if I'm 97 and not providing support for anyone? What about insurance for an extremely wealthy individual who can essentially self-insure?... more

MIP is a Contract insuring a mortgage lender against default risk. Mortgage insurance allows a borrower to purchase a home with a down payment as low as 3 to 5% of the purchase price-even less for qualified borrowers-instead of the usual 20% down payment lenders normally require. Insurance premiums are paid by the borrower. The Federal Housing Authority, an agency in the Department of Housing and Urban Development, insures mortgages on one-to-four-family houses and condominiums, and it reimburses the mortgage lender if default occurs. This will be required if you are putting less than 20% down on the purchase of the home.
