Your friends and family want you to have what’s best for you, just like you want the same for them. Unfortunately, this desire for you to have the finest things in life can steer several of them to suggest advice that—while well intentioned—is not always as educated as you require it to be.

One good example of this can be found in the advice that many family members and friends extend while you are searching for Flint home insurance.

Many Streets are Paved with Good Intentions…

Everyone has their own thoughts about what is and isn’t necessary in a homeowners insurance policy. And that’s fine—when it’s their insurance they are referencing. But when you are looking for insurance to cover your house, the best advice you can receive is from your own agent. Your agent knows about all the different benefits of insurance plans and is able to get you the most comprehensive coverage at the most reasonable price.

While goodhearted friends can suggest great advice about dating, television programs and new restaurants, it is wise to leave the monetary guidance to the licensed, and experienced, professionals. It is unlikely that your friends and family have had as much preparation, instruction and experience with insurance as your local insurance agent. The familiarities of friends and family are often narrow—resulting from their personal insurance shopping experiences or stories told by their friends and neighbors. Not only are these just an incomplete sampling of the information available, they can also be peppered with misinterpretation and bias that your friend or family member does not even know of.

Agents, on the other hand, go through rigorous educational courses before they can even obtain a license. Then, they must attend continuing education programs every year in order to remain licensed. They deal with thousands of various insurance and claims situations each year and they stay up to date with trends and changes in legislature. They are experts in their field, and they have put a large amount of effort into earning that status.

So while Aunt Audrey has the best advice for making homemade bread, and Uncle Rick knows just how to keep your lawn perfectly seeded, trusting these helpful, but often misinformed people to offer you information about insurance could put you on the wrong track.
