ZimSelector.com prides itself for its ability to simplify complex products and processes for the customer and here are a few tips to help you avoid some pitfalls and get the right product for your needs:

Motor Insurance – cover level matters :
When it comes to renewing a Motor Insurance policy, it is tempting to go for the cheapest option, Third Party insurance, which is the minimum level of insurance which satisfies the requirement of the laws of Zimbabwe as defined by the Road Traffic Act.
However, when it comes to a claim, many will discover that Third party insurance offers very little protection so it really is important to understand the various options:

Third party Insurance:
This is the most basic cover and protects the client (or insured/ policyholder) against loss or damage to third Party Properties in the course of driving, and death or bodily injury to these Third Parties only. It also covers any legal liabilities arising from the policyholder’s driving which results in any of the above mentioned accidents (bodily injury, death, or property damage) to third parties. It does NOT cover any loss or damage to the car of the policy owner.

Third party fire and theft insurance
In addition to the above cover, this insurance policy also covers theft or fire damage to the policy owner’s car. It does NOT cover damage to the policy owner’s car for any other reason than fire damage.

Fully Comprehensive
This is the most extensive form of motor insurance cover, which, in addition to the above cover, also provides accidental damage to the policyholder’s vehicle.

Remember – often in life you get what you pay for – and saving on the level of motor insurance may be a costly mistake when it comes to making a claim. Check out prices on our site – the best cover may be cheaper than you think. Always shop around before buying your insurance – as soon as you get your renewal notice make sure you compare cover and quotes.

Home Insurance:
Make sure you have enough cover. The real purpose of homeowners insurance is to make sure that if there were to be a fire or other disaster you will be able to rebuild or replace your home with one of similar value. If you are ‘under-insured’ the Insurer may not give you the full amount following a claim.

Consider with your home contents – taking extra cover for expensive or luxury items such as jewellery, artworks, antiques, or electronics. Make sure you have a good record of the items in your home. Some people walk around with a video camera to record their possessions. Or use a digital camera to take pictures. Make sure you store these files or tapes off site. Keep receipts for expensive items.

Always close windows and lock doors when you leave the property.

If you get a discount for having an alarm, you must use it when you leave the house.

Using your home for business may invalidate your insurance policy

When you are buying a house, you can sometimes focus so hard on choosing the property that you forget all the costs you need to plan for. ZimSelector.com is an official agent for the mortgage application services of several reputable lenders including CBZ, CABS and NMB Bank. Our customer services team is geared to help you every step of the way with your application whether you are at home or abroad. Contact our customerservices@zimselector.com for more information.

Here are some of the main expenses you need to remember:
• A deposit for the house. Although you will probably need a mortgage, you will still have to put some of your own money into the property, typically a minimum of 10% of the purchase price. If you are selling a house, you may make enough profit for the deposit – but make sure.
• Estate Agency fees. If you have a house to sell, you may want to do this with professional help from an Estate Agent. Our recommendation would be to deal with a ‘registered’ estate agent. This can be checked with the Estate Agents Council of Zimbabwe.
• Property repair. Often the home you buy needs some ‘care and attention’ it may be prudent to reserve anything between 1.5 to 2.5% of the total budget amount for repair works to the acquired property
• Legal costs. The conveyancing lawyers are the seller’s choice, but do ensure these are reputable and registered and only pay money in to the lawyers trust account and not directly to the seller.

It is also essential to start a bank account because you will find it easier to arrange your mortgage where you already have a track record with a well-run bank account. You will also need to be able to set up regular mortgage payments when the property purchase is complete. Use our banking comparison service to find the best option for you. https://www.zimselector.com/zms/banking. Remember, you will certainly get a preference for funds if you have a banking or investment product with the mortgage lender.

3. Investing in the wrong thing. Only invest money in the stock market that you won’t need for at least three years, and preferably five years or longer. If you know you need early access to your funds, opt for a more accessible savings account.
4. Putting all your eggs in one basket. Don’t tie all your money up in property or long term investments as you do also need some rainy day money.
