The kids are out of school, it’s getting HOTTER and we’re all looking forward to some Summer fun!
Our team kicked off the Summer with a pool party! Usually we are guaranteed rain if we plan a BBQ Pool Party but we lucked out and had great weather. It was a lot of fun to get our families together…lots of laughs and splashes!
My family has a getaway planned for Great Wolf Lodge later in the month. Charlie invited his cousin, Amelia, to join us. We’re excited to enjoy the water park and to simply get away for a couple days. Later this Summer, we’re going to take a road trip to Orange Beach, AL. We had so much fun last year that we’re going to do it again!
Max and Briana are heading to float the Guadeloupe River next month with a group of friends. They go every year and have a blast!
Rachelle and Nate are going on a cruise. They’ll enjoy some time in Half Moon Cay, Bahamas, Grand Turk Island and Amber Cove, Dominican Republic.
I hope you have some time scheduled for some rest and relaxation this Summer!
Have a great month,

4 Things to Consider When Insuring a Second Home
Everyone loves vacation. But, vacationing in your own seasonal home? Even better.
However, there’s a lot to consider when it comes to protecting your investment in a vacation home, and you definitely want to protect it. We here at JVM Insurance can help by making sure you have the insurance coverage you want.
To that end, here are four things that may impact the coverage you choose and how much you’ll pay for it.
Separate Policy: Your seasonal home won’t be part of your primary property policy. It needs its own policy, and you can expect it to be similar to the one for your primary residence. However, you do need to watch out for “named perils” coverage, under which your policy explicitly lists the perils it will cover. If a peril isn’t listed, no coverage. We typically steer homeowners away from this type of coverage, in favor of broader coverage.
Location and Occupancy: The “where” of your vacation home is no doubt among the primary reasons why you bought it. But, it will also impact your insurance costs. Rural areas are hard for emergency responders to reach, and waterfront homes are prone to flooding. These added risks can mean added insurance costs, such as the need for a separate flood policy. If the home is unoccupied or rented for much of the year, there are even more insurance considerations.
Personal Property: Establishing and maintaining a separate inventory of the things you keep at your vacation home will help you select an appropriate level of personal property coverage. If it’s filled with expensive skiing and snowboarding gear, for example, you may need increased coverage or to schedule some of the more valuable items separately.
Extra Liability Protection: If you plan to regularly host guests at your summer or winter retreat, you should consider an umbrella policy, which will help to increase your liability limits in case someone is seriously injured on your property. This can go for invited and uninvited guests alike.
We know you want to relax and enjoy your chosen spot in the sun – or snow. Having the right insurance coverage helps you do just that, so give us a call and let us help!
