How soon during the home closing process should I purchase insurance?
I've never purchased a property before, so I don't know when insurance is supposed to come into play. When should I buy a policy?

Most insurance companies will allow you to purchase homeowners insurance as early as 30 to 45 days before you close on the home, and as late as one day before closing. It’s a good idea to shop for homeowners quotes early in the home purchasing process so you have a plan in place. Once you get closer to your closing date, your lender will ask you to provide proof of insurance, which is when you’ll want to contact your agent to bind coverage.

Does the value of my car impact how much I will pay for car insurance?
I pay about $100 per month currently for my Honda Element. I saved all my pennies and can finally buy my dream car, an Aston Martin Vanquish. I have an excellent driving record. Will this car valued at $300,000 cost a lot more to insure?

Why did my auto insurance rate change when I moved from Arizona to Alabama?
When I changed my address with State Farm, my rate increased significantly. They said it was because I didn't have enough coverage on my 2014 Dodge Dart. I'm 24, have a clean record, and am expected to pay $300 a month. Did I get ripped off or is this common?
