Your home is your sanctuary. It’s a dependable shelter that keeps you and your family safe, and it’s the place where memories are made. For most people, a house represents the biggest financial and emotional investment they’ll ever make. With the right Property Insurance plan, you can protect your investment and your personal property from whatever life throws your way.
Every Home Insurance policy is different, and at our agency, we’ll work with you to make sure that your policy fits the needs of yourself and your family. Property Insurance may insure your home from the following types of damage:
- Fire and Lightning
- Collisions from Vehicles or Aircraft
- Sewer/Drain Backup
- Volcanic Eruption
- Freezing Conditions or Snow
Property Insurance Options to Consider
There are many additional coverage types that are available to safeguard your home and belongings, and it’s important to talk with a representative from our agency who can help you find the right policy.
Options such as Personal Property Insurance and Flood or Earthquake Insurance may not fall under a standard Homeowners policy. In the event of an accident or theft, Personal Property can pay the actual cash value (ACV) or replacement cost of personal content items or articles like furniture, appliances, and clothing.
Other items that may be included are Builder’s Risk while your home is being built or reconstructed, and insurance for damage to pertinent/detached structures.
Another important feature to consider in your Homeowners policy is Dwelling Replacement Coverage. If a fire or other accident leaves your home a “total loss,” this coverage provides for the cost of replacing your home at its current value, rebuilding to code, and Ordinance & Law.
As is the case with many other features of Home Insurance, additional coverage can vary greatly depending on your policy, which is why it’s important to discuss your individual insurance options with our agency before making a decision.
A standard homeowners insurance policy insures the home itself and the things you keep inside. By having homeowners insurance, you can financially protect yourself if there’s an accident. Contact our agency today to learn more about homeowners insurance or to get a no-obligation quote.
What Is Homeowners Insurance?
Home insurance is a package policy, which means that it covers damage to your property after a covered loss and your liability or legal responsibility for any injuries and property damage you or members of your family cause to other people. There are usually additional coverages or endorsements, also called riders, that you can add to the standard coverages provided by home insurance to ensure adequate protection.
Do I Need Homeowners Insurance?
While purchasing a home insurance policy may not be mandated by the federal, state or local government, your lender may require proof of home insurance if you have a mortgage. Carrying appropriate homeowners insurance is always a good idea as the policy can help financially protect you if you experience a covered accident or other loss. Without home insurance, you may be left to cover the replacement or repair costs on your own following an incident.
