Does home insurance cover your belongings inside your property?
I know insurance covers my home's physical structure, but what about the things inside?
Yes, you have coverage on your policy that is specifically for your belongings called “Coverage C”. This coverage type is also called “personal property coverage” and it covers things like furniture, electronics, and clothing. However, it does not cover everything and there are payout limits for certain belongings, including jewelry, watches, fur, artwork, and firearms, just to name a few. So you should check with your insurance agent to make sure you have all the coverage you need on your policy.

Will refinancing my car start my loan over?
Does refinancing your car loan cause the loan to start over? I have a car loan that I've paid on for 27 months, but the interest rate is 18%. I've built my credit score to 753 during that time and my friend told me I should definitely refinance the loan. However, I have my reservations because I don't want to start from scratch.
