If you want your insurance agent to provide you with an accurate Austin home insurance quote he or she will have to know a few details about you and your home. You can start with the basics like your name date of birth and address. If it is a home you are looking to purchase the agent will need to know both your current address and the address of the home you are buying.
Once you have the basic information out of the way now it is time to get a little more detailed. You will need to provide the year the home was built, the square footage of the home, how many bathrooms, and what kind of construction the home is. When I say construction I mean the agent will need to find out if your home has a slab or elevated foundation, if your roof is shingle or tile, and if your exterior walls are brick or siding.
If you do not know all of this information don’t worry it is easy to find. If you search the address on line you can find most of the homes information on your county tax website and often real-estate websites can provide information. If you live in Austin, you can find much of this information on the Travis Central Appraisal District. With this information your agent will be able to provide you with a more accurate quote and have a better idea of what coverage you need.
