Most insurance companies give discounts if you have both your car and home insured thru the same company. So call the company that you have your car insurance with and ask them if you can get a discount by adding your new home to the policy. If you're not satisfied, try calling other insurance companies and see what they offer.

By the way, insurance companies base their rates on your credit score, the address or zip code of the home and type of home. Not so much on age or square footage. It doesn't seem fair but I've read several articles that state credit scores mean a lot to insurance companies for determining how much they charge for premiums.

More important to you should be your credit. If you do a short sale, your credit will take a hit and lower your score. Unfortunately if you were further north /east closer to Manhattan, selling would not be an issue. However, given your location, selling your home is a bit different.

You need to contact your lender IMMEDIATELY!!! Most lenders are happy to work with owners PROVIDED they know about your financial situation early on BEFORE it becomes a bigger issue. Lenders have different programs / products to avoid you doing a short sale and ruining your credit. You need to find out about these now. Explain your situation and ask what your lender offers to avoid making your situation worse.

You need to know that realtors are ONLY interested in earning a commission from selling your home. They are NOT interested in helping you avoid a short sale or making your situation better for you. Only your lender has an interest because they own your loan.

Since it appears you are in the early stages, contacting your lender now will help you. If you wait, lenders will tell owners "Sorry but there's nothing I can do for you."

Best thing to do is ask an officer on patrol on Main St . They will usually give you their opinion. Realtors usually won't answer that question nor can they tip you off that a house/ apartment is over priced . City data is good website to chaeck out all REPORTED crimes . Remeber if the police don't properly report it - it will not be on the FBI crime report. ... more
