Homeowners Insurance

Your house is probably your biggest financial investment and your biggest asset. Mortgage companies require you to carry homeowners insurance but even if you are not required to buy coverage, you should have a comprehensive policy as this is the only reliable way to protect your investment.

How To Cut The Cost Of Home Insurance

There are a number of ways to reduce the cost of homeowners insurance substantially while maintaining adequate coverage. And there are some other ways to reduce the cost which will not provide the coverage you need.

  1. Raise the deductible
    The higher your deductible, the lower the cost of your policy. You will, of course, have to pay any damages to your house out-of-pocket up to the limit of the deductible. However, many experts believe that in the long term you will save money and also avoid the chance that your policy will not be renewed because you filed too many small claims -- something which has happened to a number of people across the country.

  2. Make sure that your home is insured for its replacement costs
    It is a bad idea to save money on homeowners insurance by buying a policy that does not cover the full replacement cost of your home. The replacement cost is the cost of rebuilding your home if it were completely damaged.

    Many people assume that they can buy homeowners coverage that insures them for the market value of the house -- but this is not true. And even if you have partial damage to your home, you may find that your policy may only pay a percentage of the cost of the damage if you do not have full replacement coverage.

    The replacement cost is the only true benchmark. And since the cost of construction changes every year, it is a good idea to update your insurance every year to reflect any increase.

Don't Just Shop Price, Shop Also for Reliability

In addition to finding a low cost policy, you should also find a reliable company that will settle any claims you make quickly.

To find reliable and unbiased data about homeowners insurance complaints go to the website of your state Insurance Department. You can often find their web address by searching on the Internet for "[your state name] insurance department"

When you locate the URL of your state's Insurance Department, go to the consumer division, then look for a listing of justified complaints from consumers about insurers that provide homeowners insurance. Most state insurance departments have a listing that you can trust -- because it was compiled by an unbiased and objective state agency. This listing tells you which companies will honestly and fairly deal with you if you should ever need to make a claim on your insurance.
