Protecting Assets

The main tools for protecting your assets are adequate amounts of the right kinds of insurance for you and your family and writing and executing appropriate estate planning documents.

Beyond that, developing good habits of caring for your home and belongings will extend the life of appliances and systems in the home. Some homeowners like to purchase a home warranty policy for peace of mind. They often are included in home sales to be paid by the seller. You should carefully read the coverage information and check out the company before purchasing.
