King Properties Real Estate Assistant jpaperwork@gmail.com     For the last nine years it has been my privilege to stay at home and raise my children.  Prior to marriage, I worked in the Film and Television industry as a Set Decorator in Los Angeles.  I was involved in the design process, as well as decorating the sets.  The architect that I worked for included residential design in his portfolio which is how I was introduced in to the Real Estate market.   I was then able to learn from investors in the residential real estate market while continuing to work in film and television.  In 2002 I met my husband and we purchased our first home in 2004.  The market was incredible for flipping houses so we decided to rent out our home.  We found that we liked being landlords ...

During the process of buying your Irmo, SC home, you will be asked to obtain home insurance.  While it is easy to choose the first company who comes along, it is a better idea to get several quotes.  Home insurance, much like medical insurance, can vary greatly in coverage from one company to another.  Some companies offer discounts for specific items, while others do not.  Or, another company may cover flood damage while the other only covers wind and hail.  Do yourself a service by collecting all of the information before you decide on a home insurance company.  Home ownership can be unpredictable, so protect yourself for that rainy day. Home Insurance While you may have shopped long and hard before settling on insurance policies for health and car, you should compare prices just as c...
