After buying Bulimba real estate, you'd be forgiven for wanting to take a break from the administrative side of property ownership.
However, there is one more aspect that should be taken care of before you sit down and relax in your humble abode.
Insuring your home is the next logical step towards a happy, fruitful experience for your family – after all, all the work and effort that went into the search and purchase should be safeguarded.
The standard home insurance policies protect you from external harm caused by elements outside of your control. This can range from fire and hurricanes through to vandalism and other forms of property destruction.
Furthermore, in the unlikely (but extremely horrible) situation that your home is destroyed in some way, there is reimbursement available for any accommodation taken during that period.
But before you book a room at the closest five star hotel, the amount you're able to claim back is directly related to the amount you pay for coverage in the first place.
Investing in home insurance could be the last thing on your mind after working through the property market and securing your dream home – but the peace of mind provided is worth the cost.
