Do I need renters insurance as a subtenant?
I'm subleasing a house at the moment. The primary tenant doesn't have renters insurance. As the person who's occupying the place, do I need to get renters insurance?

That is a great question, and the answer is a resounding yes! The house’s primary tenant would also be wise to get renters insurance. If your personal property is damaged or stolen while you are subleasing, renters insurance will help you to replace your property.

Is it normal for monthly car insurance to cost more than the monthly loan payment?
I'm 22 and I want to buy a new car with a loan. But when I get quotes, the insurance is actually more than the loan payment. I also have a car my parents gave me that's paid off. I was thinking of trading this in, but now I'm not so sure.
