When do car insurance rates lower?
"I'm a 21 year old male. I have a new car and pay $250 a month for insurance. I'm in school and want to save as much money as I can.
When can I expect lower rates?"
“As a male, your car insurance tends to be higher than a female of your same age. While there are a lot of factors that go into car insurance rates, most drivers notice a decrease around age 25.
Once you hit 25, most drivers have close to ten years of driving experience and often have more financial stability than a younger driver. Since car insurance is based on risk, this means your rates will often be lower as long as you have a clean driving record.
Since you are a student, you can see if you qualify for a good student discount with your current insurance carrier.
You should shop around as well. You can request car insurance quotes with a variety of carriers to determine what the best rate for you is.”

Why is my insurance company requiring us to add a fence around the pool?
Is there a way around building a fence? We just closed on our new home and the insurance company is giving us 30 days to have a fence put up around the pool. The prior owners didn't have a fence and I don't know why we need one. We don't have any small children in our home and we tend to be very careful people in general.
