Hello, Jim Jacobsen, managing broker with Windermere Real Estate in Seattle, Washington. We have a question that come up today about insurance on a vacant home and I might say to you that it's extremely important, that's one of the first things that you want to do when a house goes vacant is to contact your insurance agent because a vacant home has a different insurance rate than one that's occupied and if the insurance agent were to find out that you had a vacant home and you hadn't changed your insurance it could possibly be a big problem to you. So I tell all my clients to make sure that they contact their insurance agent immediately so that they know what the difference is in insuring their home.
