If you want to buy a house I have been trying to figure out how exactly you can do it. Of course I mean the fine details of getting it done are sort of eluding me. I realize that there are some basic precepts, for example you definitely need to get the down payment. Of course I pretty much thought that was the big thing you had to do. However if you visit site here you can see them talk about one of the things I did not know, which is that you need to get home insurance before you can even get the bank to make you a loan on a house. The underlying principle is just as simple and plain as it can possibly be, that being that the bank wants you to give them their money back with interest. Obviously they have to protect themselves from al sorts of things which are not all that likely, but which could happen.
Now for example if you borrow a hundred thousand dollars on a house, you probably intend to have the house. However it is possible that the house could catch fire or there could a hurricane or a tornado or something like a flood. After this event the house might be worth ten dollars, in which case you probably do not want to pay ten thousand times what it is worth to the bank. That is why you get insurance if you are a bank. Of course the chances are that you do not have to worry too much about some biblical disaster flattening your house, but as long as there is a chance you have to protect yourself from it. At least if you are a banker and you are in this business you have to do it.
