My comments about condo insurance:

Condo insurance premium has been skyrocketing the past couple years due to increase in number of claims, and in the cost of repairs etc. When shopping for your next dream home, it’s important to go through the building insurance summary. We always advise our clients to check with their insurance broker first so they have an idea of the unit insurance premium for the building they are interested in before removing subjects. Always make sure the unit is insured since day 1 and review the policy annually in case the building insurance has changes on coverage.
