Home Insurance Coverages to Consider
Every home is different, but many face a lot of similar dangers. A basic home insurance policy may include:
· Dwelling Coverage: Dwelling coverage provides compensation for damages to the physical home and its attached structures caused by fire, wind, hail, lightning, smoke, explosions, vandalism and more.
· Personal Belongings Coverage: Personal belongings coverage provides compensation for damages to your personal items caused by fire, lightning, smoke, theft, vandalism and more. You may want additional policy floaters to cover expensive items such as jewelry, furs, art and electronics.
· Personal Liability: Personal liability covers bodily injury and property damage other people may suffer on your home’s property. It can also extend to damages and injuries caused by your children or pets.
· Additional Living Expenses: In case the home is rendered uninhabitable due to a disaster, additional living expense coverage provides compensation for costs related to temporarily moving.
Be sure to ask about additional coverages available for your home insurance policy.
How Much Home Insurance Should I Have?
Your home insurance needs will change depending on your home, risk level, location and other factors. In general, you should insure your home for its total replacement cost value. This is not the amount that you paid for the home, however, or its market value. The replacement cost value of your home is how much it would take to completely rebuild the home after a disaster, including building and material costs.
If you cannot insure your home for its entire replacement cost value, you should cover at least 80% of this amount, otherwise you could have unexpected gaps in your coverage when it comes time to file a claim.
