How to Buy a home

Buying a home is one of the biggest things you’ll ever buy (well unless you really had to have that gold-plated unicorn garden fountain) and it can be stressful, time-consuming and very hard to understand who, what, where, when at the best of times.

With similar projections on the horizon, you can't help but wonder how house insurance will be affected.
