Property Insurance

Response

I've worked with a great commercial agent/broker in the Los Angeles, CA area. His name is Paul Huang... he has a CPCU designation, so is very knowledgable and experienced. He's a UCLA grad and works at New Century Insurance. His phone is 626-300-9000 ext. 162... email is paulh@newcenturyins.com.Hope that's helpful!

Can you use the cost per square footage to get a Home Insurance?

Answer

The dwelling coverage is the cost of rebuilding your house, which is based on things like the cost of building materials and labor. It should be tailored for your house based on things like the kind of flooring and countertops that you have (ie. carpet, tile, granite, marble, etc.)The sq. ft. cost that Zillow shows is their estimate based on the market value of the home, which is totally different. The market value fluctuates depending on demand for the house. Things like its location, the school district, the neighborhood, etc. affect this figure, and have very little to do with the cost of rebuilding the house.

how do I remove the realtor from my listing?

Answer

Are you sure he didn't just take over the listing from his own account? Zillow has a link specifically for doing this, and it sounds like he's just trying to do his job, marketing your house.

Where is Bird's Eye View? And main photo?

Response

I believe the Bird's Eye View photos that Zillow uses are borrowed from Microsoft Virtual Earth. You can still access the same photos through Microsoft's own map website... http://local.live.com the only problem is that it's inconvenient, not being coupled together with Zillow's home specs
