Common Homeowners Insurance Questions
What is homeowners insurance?
After you buy a home, homeowners insurance helps you pay the recovery costs of a variety of hazards that might occur in or impact the property. Your policy will contain tailored coverage that can minimize financial losses from damaging events like severe weather, fires, vandalism, theft, liability lawsuits and more.
What does homeowners insurance cover?
Your home insurance can offer various terms. Each will uniquely address losses that might occur on your property:
All policies will include deductibles and maximum limits. However, most policies offer additional coverage and endorsements to better protect your unique items and liabilities.
What factors determine how much homeowners insurance I need?
To accurately decide how much home insurance you need, keep a few different values in mind.
Structure coverage usually pays the replacement cost value of damage to the house. This is the approximate value needed to rebuild the home as it was when the damage struck.
Other structure insurance will pay replacement costs value. However, its maximum limit will be a percentage of total structure coverage.
To determine the amount of possessions coverage you need, take an appraisal of your most important belongings. Include items like clothing, furniture and electronics in your evaluation. Possessions policies usually pay actual cash value for lost items. This is the value of a used item rather than a new one.
To insure important items for their full values, you can choose to schedule those belongings on your policy using special endorsements.
Most policies include deductibles. If the cost of property damage falls below the cost of your deductible, then your policy won’t pay. Always choose a deductible that you can afford to pay out of pocket.
Keep in mind, certain types of damage might not have coverage at all, notably floods. So, if you live in an area prone to unique weather risks, you might need specialty coverage.
