Bruce Lynn answered:
The home insurance quoted to me at $1024 for 12 months. Is it too much for a 11yr old 2000sqft house ? The deductible is 1% (of $182k).

In the past I always suggested a number of about 1% of the value of the home.

Adrian Huntington answered:
For resale value of single story, is a 4 bedroom with a smaller Master bedroom Better than 3 bedroom but with bigger Master bedroom ?
In my opinion, it is better to buy a 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath home with large bedrooms, then a 4 Bedroom, 2 Bath home with small bedrooms. Small bedrooms are less desirable.
