Home Insurance-What is your score?? 
Do you know your credit score also affects the way you get your home insurance?  The way insurance company decides on the score is not the same as your credit score for a mortgage loan.  The score runs from 1-30, and the lower the number, the better the score for insurance.  It is just opposite from getting a mortgage loan which needs the higher the score the better it is.  And it affects your insurance rate, which will affect your monthly mortgage note also.
Home insurance and home shopping goes hand in hand nowadays, good credit score gets you good insurance … (8 comments)
