State Farm Homeowners Policy

The same day that I received the letter notifying me of the tax abatement approval for the Starter Home 2.0 Project, I also was mailed a hard copy of my homeowner's policy from State Farm. Homeowner's Insurance, like many aspects of the Starter Home 2.0 project, was completely new to me a few months ago, but getting the chance to sit down with my insurance agent to discuss all aspects of the policy earlier this fall was a great way to learn how to decipher the pages of legalese that make up the various declarations and agreements. The big takeaway for me from this encounter and all my informal lessons in Law, Finance, and Construction the past couple years, has been that despite all the resources available online, there is no substitute for sitting down face-to-face with an industry expert and asking questions with an open mind when trying to learn a new subject matter.
