Whether you own or rent, insuring the place you call home can help protect you financially if you suffer a loss due to fire, theft, vandalism, or other covered events. It will also cover you in the event someone is injured while on your property and wins a legal judgment against you.
What you pay for your homeowner’s insurance depends on many factors. Your home insurance policy is most often made up of the specific options you choose. Our insurance experts are here to walk you through all of your different coverage options. How much you’ll pay for your policy depends on:
- Insurance coverage options you select– Often homeowners insurance options are priced individually, so how much you’ll pay for your policy depends on what coverages you buy.
- How much you want to cover– Higher deductibles usually lower your premium price by shifting part of the loss payment to you. For example, if you had a $500 deductible, you would be responsible for paying the first $500 of the covered loss.
- Where you set your limits– You may choose to set higher limits than the recommended amount if appropriate to your situation and needs.
While not right for everyone, sometimes umbrella insurance policies can help fill in the gaps that a standard homeowners insurance policy doesn’t cover.
The Right Home Insurance for You
There is no one-size-fits-all home insurance policy. The first thing you should take into consideration is the total value and replacement costs of your home and valuables. Then consider what other types of hazards that may occur around your home which can cause you to file an insurance claim. Our agents will help explain the different options and coverage selections so that you can get the best coverage within your budget.
Property or Dwelling Coverage typically pays to repair or rebuild your home if it’s damaged or destroyed by an insured event like a kitchen fire or windstorm.
- Protection for You and Other People
Personal Liability Coverage applies if someone is injured or their property is damaged and you are to blame. The coverage generally applies anywhere in the world. When choosing your liability coverage limits, consider things like how much money you make and the assets you own. Your personal liability coverage should be high enough to protect your assets if you are sued.
This covers medical expenses for guests if they are injured on your property, and in certain cases covers people who are injured off of your property. It does not cover health care costs for you or other members of your household.
- Protection for Your Belongings
Your home is filled with furniture, clothes, electronics, and other items that mean a lot to you. Personal Property Insurance helps replace these items if they are lost, stolen or destroyed as a result of a covered loss. Adding Scheduled Property Coverage ensures that your more expensive possessions will be covered.
