Renters’ insurance can be a fairly cheap way to ensure compensation for stolen items edward str at ton fr eel ance r eporter

A couple of people break into your apartment. After casing the room, they rip apart the screen and break through the window. They take that brand new plasma screen television, the MacBook Pro, and the brand new bicycle. After stealing your belongings, they decide to spray graffiti all over the walls and smash up the rest of the room. Depending on whether you’ve insured your residence, the day could become even more stressful and expensive. Renters’ insurance provides varying levels of coverage against fire, vandalism, lightning and water damage, and reimbursement for damaged items. Being insured also protects against liability suits in the case of a break-in or other

structural damage. The simplest plans cover a few hundred dollars a year. Montra Vannett, an agent for Allstate Insurance Company, provided a rough quote for the most basic plans. “It’s usually $10 per month,” she said. More expensive policies can cover more. Ken Benley, an agent for Farmer’s Insurance Group, emphasized how prices can change based on what you want covered. “It depends on how much personal property you have, and whether you want replacement cost coverage,” he said. With replacement cost coverage, an insurance company will provide the funds to buy new whatever was stolen. According to Eugene’s municipal government Web site, in 2008, the citywide rate of theft stood at

R & R Properties, sees a majority of renters who don’t know the true value of insurance. “They don’t know what it is,” she said. “They think it’s another bill in the mail.” Cindy Armstrong, a property manager for Challe Real Estate, offers a simple three-step plan for getting insured. “Go to an insurance company, tell them you’re renting and that you want renters’ insurance,” she said. There are also ways to make renters’ insurance much more effective. Items should be inventoried by writing down the make, model, serial number and price. “Having a good record of what you have is a good idea,” Armstrong said. Renters insurance provides the peace of mind that even when the worst happens, there’s help around the corner. n e ws@dai ly e m e r a ld.co m

4.39 percent. The rate of burglary was at 1.65 percent. Both of those rates were higher than in 2007, and a recent FBI report indicated that property crimes in Eugene increased 26 percent, even as they declines nationwide. “With the economy being challenging,” Vannett said, “there are a lot of thefts.” Although the rates may not sound very high, theft and burglary affect a lot of people in a city of more than 154,000 people. Car break-ins are some of the most common crimes in Eugene. The break-in rate grew by more than 21 percent between 2007 and 2008. “Renters insurance covers items stolen out of your car,” Benley said. Many students might not know that it covers what’s parked or chained up outside. Although some students insure their residence and belongings, many decide to take a risk.

Top 10 To-Dos • First, research the area you’re thinking of living in beyond the actual apartment. are there grocery stores, parks, gyms or shopping areas nearby? Having these things around can make your new living experience much more enjoyable. • If you don’t have a car or bike, look into which bus routes are nearby. ask yourself how far you’re really willing to walk to campus. • Make sure to document all the little damages you find in your residence when you first move in. Take pictures, if you can. • Try using Craigslist to find furniture, a microwave, toaster oven, blender or other small appliances. These are often only lightly used — not to mention,

Top 10 Do-Nots • Try not to live in a area that requires a car in order to go anywhere interesting. • Don’t buy a ton of new and expensive furniture for your place. you’re a college student and nobody expects you to have an apartment that looks like it belongs in a catalog. This will make it harder to leave, sell or give away furniture with any moving you do over the years. • Don’t put furniture outside that is meant to stay inside. The northwest

is known for mold, and a semi-soggy couch is not an inviting host. • If you’re keeping your car outside in a driveway or an easily accessible parking lot, don’t leave anything even remotely valuable in plain sight. The trunk is your friend. • To avoid being a victim of clothing theft, don’t leave your laundry waiting in the apartment laundry facility any longer than necessary. • Don’t choose an apartment without a dishwasher or garbage disposal if you don’t enjoy doing dishes every night or two. • Don’t try to cram everything you own into your apartment. Sometimes there just isn’t room and it will make it easier to move if you keep your clutter to a minimum. • Don’t bother getting a landline phone, especially if you know you won’t stay in your new place for more than a year. • Think about going without cable if you don’t need to watch TV all the time. it will save you more money than you realize. • Don’t become a hermit in your new home, no matter how much you love the place. especially if you’re living by yourself, remember to stay involved on campus and in other community areas.

So, you’re going to be living on your own — now what? moving into your first apartment or condo or house (if you’re lucky) can be daunting. Having your own place is a big departure from living at home with the family or even from living in a campus residence hall. But it’s also an exciting time and allows you to step more fully into adult life. if you’re about to embark on your first year of living in a new place, take these tips to heart.

much cheaper than retail prices. • Save the boxes you used to move stuff into your place for when you decide to move out. • Invest in a good vacuum. You’ll need it — and hopefully you’ll use it. • Surround your new space with items or photos that remind you of home, loved ones and your favorite memories. • Buy a medium to large garbage can and bags. This will save you trips to the dumpster. • Try to write out a list when going to the grocery store to prevent yourself from buying stuff you don’t need or duplicates of things you already have. • Use your new place as an excuse to host a housewarming party! invite your friends to share in this new step in your life.

A new house or apartment can look pretty bare when you first move in. Fortunately, it’s nothing you can’t improve with a few green plants. An indoor garden is a fun, easy and cheap way to make your new home more inviting. Plus, plants freshen the air — and every college home can use that. Here’s how to do it:

wildflowers or herbs such as lavender or basil. If you have plenty of space, you may want to try growing your own vegetables indoors, where a lot less weeding is involved. For maximum convenience, look for minigarden kits that come complete with pots, dirt and seeds — just unwrap and add water. If you buy supplies individually, you should check the containers to make sure they have drainage holes. Hirons is a good resource for finding a variety of planters, saucers, seed packets, live plants, bags of potting soil, or — if this already seems like a bit much — fake plastic flowers.
