Get a C.L.U.E.!

Insurability is a big consideration when purchasing a home. Can the home be insured? How much will it cost? Checking with your insurance agent early on in the transaction is always a good idea. In addition, you can ask the seller to provide you with a C.L.U.E. Report that will give you information about any claims on the property over the past 5 years. Ask your Realtor about this report when you go to buy your next home.
