The fall season is here, and popular holidays like Halloween are going to be a little different this year. While some folks on social media may gripe, fact is no one has ever said Halloween is cancelled. But given the unprecedented times we’re living in, your normal Halloween plans likely will have to change. Yet there is still plenty you can do to enjoy the holiday and have a COVID safe Halloween. Here are some tips to navigate the holiday safely as well as some ideas to keep things spooky while staying safe at the same time.
As people struggle with recreation opportunities during the pandemic, camping and road trips are more popular than ever. Another area that is seeing a boom in interest is that of RV sales. Now that RV dealers have been allowed to open back up their gates to new customers, it’s harder than ever to find an RV in stock. For example, a Pueblo, CO RV dealer sold his entire yearly stock in less than two months, and now the lot sits mostly empty, waiting for new inventory. It’s easy to see why RV ownership has skyrocketed during the pandemic. The freedom of the open road and no concerns about using public facilities like bathrooms and hotels is a huge plus. This said, there are risks of owning a RV, particularly staying safe while driving it on the road. Let’s look at some safety tips to keep you and your family protected and healthy on your next road trip.

In the wake of this pandemic, our homes have suddenly become a lot smaller. The kitchen table may be your temporary but “for who knows how long” office. In the living room, your children are attending remote class. It’s easy to see why so many homeowners are considering remodeling their homes during this pandemic. In fact some companies report over a 50% increase in home remodeling projects this year versus last year. So if you’re thinking about adding that pool or new home office, be sure to consider your home remodel and homeowners insurance at the same time. Here are some tips to stay protected.
Are you currently considering refinancing your mortgage? During these difficult times, more and more homeowners are weighing a refinance for their home loan. Chances are your first loan and first homeowners insurance purchase was aided by a real estate agent. You knew exactly what to do so the bank would be pleased and the keys would end up in your hand. A refinance is a different story. Your real estate agent has moved on to other clients, and you’re left to figure out this process on your own. To further complicate things, your existing homeowners policy you set up needs attention during a refi as well. Let’s take a closer look at homeowners insurance and your refinance to navigate this process smoothly.
In today’s socially distanced society, more and more of us are turning to online shopping for our needs. At the same time, many families are struggling to make ends meet.

In response, many are turning to online insurance comparison sites. While in theory these sites are a great way to compare rates, they don’t tell the full story. Worse yet, they can lead to wrong policy decisions. If your insurance policy is up for renewal or you’re just ready for a switch to save money, we recommend working with a broker versus a comparison site. Here are the reasons why.
