It doesn't matter if you're on septic or a public sewer line, you should **always** have a specific inspection on the plumbing leaving your house. Those are a notorious trouble spot. I'd pay thousands to have a reasonable assurance that I won't have sewage backing up into my house any time soon because of how costly the associated repairs can be but those inspections are usually a few hundred dollars.... more
Please be careful which company you are insure with. The main purpose of insurance is to insure something you could not afford. If you are getting a low price, it does not mean it is good. Ask around to see if any friends, relatives and realtor could recommend you to a reliable and be able to pay if there is a claim, between 1100-1400 per year is reasonable, but again, choice a good insurance company is very important.
Thank you for asking the question.

Hi Hmbuyer, don't check with your local police department for crime statistics. I'm a retired police Lieutenant, and I'd cringe to think of some of the guys who worked for me offering advice to the public. Accurate information on crime and demographics is easily attanable on-line. When looking at information on crime, you want hard statistics, not opinions from police or any other source. I've lived in Centereach for 19 years and we love it, that's not to say that you will. Each person has personal needs and wants, research the various communities that you may be interested in. After researching visit the finalists at different times and days to get a feel for them. Good luck.
