Understanding Home Insurance
You want your home to be secure and safe for you and your family. You also want to maintain it to keep its property value stable and competitive. Homeowners insurance is one of the best ways to do so.
No one ever knows when a hazardous event like severe weather, a fire or a break-in might damage your property. But when events like these happen, they are often expensive. If you cannot afford to repair your losses, your overall equity might drop and put you in a tight financial bind. By paying multiple recovery costs on your behalf, homeowners insurance offers you expansive protection against these losses.
When should I buy homeowners insurance?
You want your homeowners policy to protect you from the moment you take possession of your home. Therefore, you will need to have a policy in place before you even close on the property.
In many cases, a mortgage lender will require you to have a policy in place if you take out a loan on the property, and you will have to maintain this coverage at least for the duration of the loan.
How much home insurance do I need?
There is a diversity of homeowners policies including policies for mobile homes, renters and condo owners. Each can offer customized benefits that protect you against a multitude of potential losses.
Some of the essential coverage to include on your policy might include:
Dwelling Insurance: Your policy will pay to help you rebuild or repair your home following structural damage.
Other Structures Insurance: This coverage pays for damage to structures that are not part of your dwelling, such as storage sheds, fences or detached garages.
Contents Coverage: Following damage to your belongings, this coverage can pay to repair or replace the items.
Liability Insurance: Should someone who does not live with you get hurt in your home, then this coverage can reimburse them for their losses. It applies to the fact that accidents in your home might be your legal responsibility to pay.
Loss of Use Coverage: If your home suffers damage in a covered peril, then this coverage can pay living expenses you accumulate if you must temporarily move out.
All policies will include deductibles, coverage limits and other terms that influence how much they will pay you for your losses. Therefore, always work with your agent to address these in ways that suit you. You can always add expanded coverage to your policy to protect even your most expensive assets.
