Shopping For Homeowners Insurance

Ask These Questions To Maximize Coverage And Discounts

Determining what kind of homeowners insurance policy you should carry can feel daunting, but by asking a few key questions you can help you secure the right level of coverage at the right price. When you are shopping for your homeowners insurance, do not forget to ask these questions.

  • What Will This Policy Cover? Homeowners insurance is generally an extremely broad type of coverage, but it is important to understand exactly where your policy extends. For example, is a leaking roof considered water damage or flooding? What extra steps will you need to take to secure flood or earthquake insurance? Make sure you have a firm grasp on what is covered by the policies you are considering.
  • How Much Property Coverage Should I Get? While you are about the process of thinking of covering your home, create a home inventory. Doing so will give you an idea of how much replacement coverage you should secure for your personal property. You should also consider if you want to secure actual cash value (taking depreciation into consideration for your reimbursement amount) or full replacement cost.
  • How Can I Save? Inquire about the different money-saving discounts that are available to you. Safety features in your home, bundling your policies, and paying your premium in full when your coverage begins can all yield savings for you. Ask your agent about the discounts for which you are eligible, and odds are you will be able to keep more money in your pocket this year.
