When it comes to buying homeowners insurance it is important to look beyond the price tag. Often, you will find the less costly policies have many exclusions, low coverage limits and high deductibles. Every home comes with its own set of risks and exposures. It is imperative that you understand your own.
There are two main pieces of that make up a Homeowners insurance policy. The physical protection, which includes the house, garage, and your personal property (or stuff) inside. Then there is the liability portion. This is often overlooked, but most likely to protect you from a catastrophic financial setback.
A helpful insurance agent will guide you through the process of understanding your limits and finding coverages that best suit your needs. There is a process for calculating the replacement cost of a home. This will enable an insurance company to rebuild your home after a loss. These numbers will look different for each individual as they take into account the age of the house, location and cost of materials, customization, finished spaces, and more.
