What value should my house be insured for?
For insurance purposes we focus on replacement cost. You may hear other values on your home like assessed value or appraised value. Assessed and appraisals include land value. We focus on only the home and other buildings on your property. We have a replacement cost estimator to make sure you home is insured properly.
Why do my rates go up? I have been with the same company for year without any losses.
If everything stayed the same rates will eventually go up because of inflation. With insurance you are sharing the risk/losses with others who are insured with the same company. With that said If the company has many losses they will have to increase rates.
How do I insure jewelry? I didn’t know if lost or stolen it wasn’t covered on most home owners.
You have coverage on a homeowner’s policy for Jewelry, however most exclude jewelry if lost or stolen. Jewelry can be added to home, condo and renter policies in case of lost or stolen.
