What you need to know about homeowners insurance
Insuring your home can help protect you financially if you suffer a loss due to fire, theft, vandalism, or other covered event. It will also cover you in the event someone is injured while on your property and wins a legal judgment against you.
The amount you pay for home insurance will depend on several factors, including:
- The coverages you choose. Usually coverage options are priced individually, so the amount you pay for your policy will depend on the coverages you select.
- Your deductible. Selecting a higher deductible will typically 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.
- Your limits. You may choose to set higher limits than the recommended amount if appropriate to your situation and needs.
Whether you’re a home or condo owner, a renter, or a landlord, Roseberry Insurance Agency will work with you to find a home insurance policy that fits your needs. We specialize in making it easy to choose the insurance coverage that gives you the best value for the best price.
What does homeowners insurance cover?
A typical homeowners insurance policy provides coverage for the following:
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.
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.
Additional Living Expenses
If you can’t live in your home because of a covered loss, your home insurance policy will pay additional living expenses-commonly for up to 24 months-while damage is assessed and your home is repaired or rebuilt.
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.
Scheduled Personal Property
If you have special possessions such as jewelry, art, antiques or collectibles you may want to talk to your agent about this additional coverage. It provides broader coverage for specific items.
Protect the things that matter to you
Make an inventory of your home and personal belongings. If possible, make a list as well as take photos or video – using two inventory methods can help expedite the claim resolution process.
Keep this list somewhere other than your home. Keep in mind that your policy doesn’t cover damages caused by poor or deferred maintenance on your part.
