Guest post by Nicholas Sooy, Farmers Insurance Agency Owner, Bellevue, WA. Nick may be reached at 206-719-8122; his website: http://farmersagent.com/nsooy

Having homeowners insurance and having “accurate” homeowners insurance are two completely different things, especially when there is a home insurance claim. Typically, there are three types of home insurance policies available: owner-occupied; tenant-occupied; and vacant. Who occupies the home, if anyone, distinguishes the correct policy to have in force.

An increasing number of homes on the market are taking a long time to sell, therefore, many of those homes are vacant. A standard home policy allows 30-60 days of incidental coverage for a vacant home. Beyond this timeframe, it is imperative that the policy switches from a standard policy to a vacant policy to ensure any claims would be covered.

Many insurance companies do not offer vacant home policies, and those that do may have higher premiums than owner-occupied policies. Check YOUR insurance; it is important to protect your investment!

You know them, you love them: those single socks whose mate has mysteriously disappeared in the dryer, drawer or gym locker. How long have you been keeping those orphans, hoping to re-unite them with their “sole-mate?”

We suggest celebrating Lost Sock Memorial Day
(May 9th) by donating your partner-less socks, along with other clean, usable women’s, children’s or men’s clothing, to Seamless Moves’ Lost Sock Day Clothing Drive to benefit Northwest Center. On Lost Sock Day, volunteers will play matchmaker and pair up as many donated socks as possible, so that they may fulfill their calling to warm chilly toes.

As you spring-clean your closets and dresser drawers over the next couple of weeks, keep a bag handy for items you no longer use. Then, take your donation to one of the donation sites listed below by May 6th, or contact Seamless Moves for pickup at 425-746-1334.
