Homeowners/Renters/Condo Insurance

Do You Need Renters Insurance?

NOTE:  Renters insurance is often a policy we buy before becoming homeowners.  These policies are modified homeowners policies that do not contain any building coverage.  The key to all insurance is to ask questions and understand policies and coverages BEFORE purchasing them.
