How can I reduce my home insurance premium?

Jessica Li Sales Rep

Discounts are offered to homes with improved security. You can install a home security system and/or a fire/smoke alarm connected to central station. You can also lower the premium by choosing a higher deductible. Some insurers provide a claim-free discount if you do not make a claim in a set period of time (usually 12 months or more).

Are homeowners insurance and home insurance the same thing?

Jessica Li Sales Rep

Yes. When an insurance agent refers to home insurance or homeowners insurance they are typically talking about the same type of policy. A standard home insurance or homeowners insurance policy includes coverage for the structure of the home and liability.

What is Guaranteed Replacement Cost?

Jessica Li Sales Rep

Guaranteed Replacement Cost coverage means that if anything happens to your home, the full cost to replace it (including construction costs) will be covered. For example: if your home is insured for $300,000 and there is a fire that destroys your entire home and costs $350,000 to rebuilt it, you won't have to pay the difference out of your own pocket.

How does mortgage loan insurance work?

Jessica Li Sales Rep

There is a common misconception that mortgage loan insurance protects the borrower. This is not the case. Mortgage loan insurance is there to protect the lender against default in payments by the homebuyer. If the buyer has a down payment of less than 20% of the purchase price, the lender will purchase default insurance and pass that cost on to the borrower. This can be paid up front, or tacked on to the mortgage payments and stretched out over time. Mortgage loan insurance is offered by companies like Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp., Genworth Financial Canada, Canada Guaranty, or another approved private insurer.

Do I need to tell my insurance company if I’m doing renovations on my house?

Jessica Li Sales Rep

Yes, it’s important to inform insurance companies about renovations because they may need to revise the value of your home. You’ll need to have enough insurance coverage to cover the value of your home, or the cost to rebuild it. You may also need extra coverage for the materials you use and for your own liability when performing renovations.

Does a higher credit score mean a better mortgage rate?

Betty Betty Zheng Broker

Your credit score is a measure of your financial health. The credit-reporting agencies Equifax and TransUnion use a scale from 300 to 900. High scores on this scale are good. The higher your score, the lower the risk for the lender. Thus, a higher rating will typically secure a better mortgage rate, since you’re considered to be more likely to make your scheduled payments. If you have a poor rating, do some damage control before you apply for your mortgage.
