Contact several insurance providers, tell them the square footage and construction material of your home along with any special features of value, and they should be able to give you an estimate.
Tell them you want replacement cost coverage.
If you feel their estimate and coverage are too low, you can always increase them.
You can certainly buy "more" insurance.

* Pay attention also to liability and medical coverage. I think your chances of being sued are greater than your home being completely destroyed. Hope not, either way.

Good luck.

So this question was asked a long time ago. Nowadays Bank Owned properties make up such a small percentage of the available homes for sale on the MLS. The few that make it usually have multiple offers and they can take up to a week to respond. I guess it depends on the offers as well. If the offers that are submitted are too low, the bank will just sit on it a while to see if anything else comes in.

A first time home buyer needs an agent to represent them just as much as a 2nd or 3rd time home buyer. The market changes, rules. laws, guidelines, etc. An experienced agent or broker will be able to help a buyer navigate through the process and potentially save them $1000's of dollars and heartache along the way.

County records show the property as 1799 Sq. Ft. The lot size is recorded as 7202 sq ft. Banks and appraisers will go by the County Records. If you have permitted additions make sure that the permits are recorded with the City.

I just went thru that with a buyer who has a 90 lb dog and was able to tell her which condos did allow her size dog and we went out and only looked at those specific buildings in Long Beach. There are quite a number that do allow pets so depending on where you are looking in Long Beach you should be able to find one to your liking.

If you would like to know the buildings that I have experience with that do allow dogs, please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to share the information.
