What factors do home insurance companies consider when setting premiums?
I'm trying to guess how much I'll end up paying for insurance for my new home. What factors are at play when setting premiums?
There are many different factors that are taken into consideration when an insurance company is coming up with your premium, such as the age of your house, the materials used to build your house, the roof type and age of your roof, any updates that might have been made to your home, your credit score, home security systems, and claims.

Will a non owners policy be the right insurance for a car that I am borrowing?
I am from Connecticut and will be living in Alaska for just the summer this year. My aunt will let me borrow her truck so I have a vehicle to get around in. It is covered on her policy, but she wants me to get a non-owner policy so that I am insured. How do I get it and for what state?
