Remember to factor in the costs of homeowners insurance if you are planning to purchase real estate in the near future.
In addition, it is a good idea to check in with your insurance agent once a year if you already own real estate and have a homeowners policy. You will want to make sure your agent knows of any material changes (such as a new kitchen or bathroom addition) in your property since the previous year. You will want to inform your agent of any sheds, outbuildings, swimming pools etc. that have been added to the exterior of your home.
