Here’s Why Marvin Wilson Chose Bubble To Protect His Home and Family

Whoever you are and wherever you are, protecting everything and everyone that matters to you should be on top of your to-do list. The most effective way of doing it is to add life insurance to your home insurance (you knew that). Now, it might sound like a long-drawn process, so you put it off for 6 months, and then another 6 months. This can go on till it’s too late. As in, really too late. That’s why Bubble is here to help make the end-to-end process of buying home and life insurance too easy and too convenient for you.
Marvin W., one of our first customers, believes it’s important to add life insurance to the purchase of home insurance. And the way Bubble makes it so easy to get bundled protection for your home and loved ones, buying both of them together is a no-brainer.
The US Census says that there are over 3.5 million truckers in the country. Being on the road away from family and home must be a tough drive. Life insurance is essential for everyone with a family, and even more so for truckers like Marvin.
“Home and life insurance is very important to me. I'm a career trucker who’s always on the move. I can't always be home to take care of my family; America needs to keep on moving. I drive on the roads of uncertainty, where anything can happen and it usually does. Bubble insurance has become my security blanket against those worries. Being a new home owner makes it essential to not only secure my family’s best interests while I'm here, but just in case I'm not, I know my family will be OK.

Women have the purchasing power now
Women have the purchasing power now

The number of single women who’re buying homes in America compared to their male counterparts is growing at a remarkable rate. A new report by LendingTree has found that in 50 of the largest metropolitan areas of the United States, single women own more homes than single men do. And the average age of women buying homes for the first time is 33. Young, independent, and financially educated women are taking the real estate world by storm!

![Women have the purchasing power now.png](/uploads/Women_have_the_purchasing_power_now_a4908ecf98.png) Given how women’s space in the professional world, as well as home, has grown multifold (there’s still a long way to go though), a growing, and in some cases, a major part of big decisions like home buying, investments, and insurance are being made by women today. When couples browse for their new home, it’s often the woman who eventually decides whether or not they’re buying that house.

Regardless of where they are personally, women have become important decision-makers with trillions in spending power today. Single women, especially those with children, are the second-largest set of homebuyers after married couples. Today’s women have more independence – financially and socially. And that has made them realize the importance of making the right choices that will never render them dependent on anyone else.

According to LendingTree's study , in America's top metropolitan areas, single women own 22% of homes while single men own 13%. It’s a new kind of gender gap we’re seeing here. Breaking the norm of married couples buying homes to build their family, single women are slowly changing the rules for themselves today.

As women take the lead in reshaping and restructuring our society, they are still the ones to think about their dependents. Whether it’s buying a home for themselves or their family, or buying insurance, women have carefully considered what’s best for the future of their families. Despite the persisting wage gap, women have still found ways to empower themselves financially and with them buying homes now more than ever, we’re going to see a big shift in financial power.

Reasons for this gap between men and women with homeownership aren't completely clear yet. But it’s safe to say that women prioritize buying a home from a young age. If you’re a woman reading this, you should know that buying a home is always going to be a big objective and we have a few tips for you to keep in mind while you achieve this goal.

Research

The first step to making a big purchase or an investment is to find out as much information as you possibly can to know what you’re about to get into. From mortgage to insurance, make it your priority to know everything. Information is the best tool you can have.

Location

Sit back and think about your ideal day in your home. You may be living in the busiest part of town right now but is that where you want to buy a house? Or do you want to move to the suburbs? What are the benefits of buying a house in either of these locations? Do you want pets? There’s a lot to factor in.

Budget

Your budget can help you zero in on the location and size of your home. Look at your finances and get help understanding them to set the right budget. Learn about what you can and can’t fit in your budget to lessen the pressure.

We hope this helps you move in the right direction towards buying a home for yourself. It’s a big move but it will be the best move for you.

Why Life Insurance should be a priority for single parents
Why Life Insurance should be a priority for single parents

As if life isn’t hard enough already, it’s even harder for single parents. The seemingly simple idea of managing home and work is a whole different story when it comes to single parents. It can be a stressful, lonely effort – home expenses, bills, kids’ tuition, clothing, mortgage, the list goes on. It’s tough, but you make it work. You make it work for yourself and for your children. Now imagine this well-oiled parental love machine coming to an abrupt halt if you’re not in the picture. You wouldn’t want your kids to be left to fend for themselves – or, entirely at the mercy and kindness of others. Getting a life insurance policy is an ideal safeguard and backstop in a scenario where, if the unthinkable happens, your kids will be okay. You would have taken care of their financial future with the right coverage at the right time. **Can you afford Life Insurance?** It’s a misconception that life insurance is expensive. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Depending on your financial needs, age and overall health condition life insurance may cost you as little as a week’s worth of coffee. For instance, if you want a $100,000 coverage, your premium could be starting off at $29. Isn’t that something you could put on your grocery list? ![6b54a6_00089797dd8444c191aa82c6764df620_mv2 (1).jpeg](https://cms.getmybubble.io/uploads/6b54a6_00089797dd8444c191aa82c6764df620_mv2_1_f8786ce748.jpeg)
Approach 2: Approache 2
**How much coverage do you need?** Now that we’ve established how life insurance can be affordable, let’s look at your finances a little closer. - Mortgage - Medical bills - Kids’ future college tuition - Other debt Consider all the above factors before picking a policy. Ensure your coverage amount covers all these future expenses and more. Don’t buy life insurance because you hear people say how important it is. Buy it because you understand why it’s important. When you know how much coverage you need and why you need it, life insurance becomes a lifesaver for your loved ones. Bubble’s automated guidance platform can help sort out all the intricacies for you. You might say you have “enough” saved up for your children’s future needs. But do you? - Would it be enough to cover your child’s college education? - Would it be enough to pay off your mortgage and any other debt you leave behind? If you can’t answer any of these questions, you might want to consider buying life insurance with coverage that can help keep your children financially looked after when you're no more. Yes, nobody and nothing can replace a parent’s love, care, and protection. You are your kids’ safety net now; but if you’re no more, life insurance can at least partially serve as one...
