Back in the day, getting a home insurance quote would involve calling your existing insurance company, dealing with your agent, and taking whatever rate was offered to you. Well, it no longer has to be that way. You can get an online home insurance quote with relative ease these days. What's more, you can get multiple quotes from multiple insurers. This puts you at a significant advantage, allowing you to shop for the best available home insurance quote. And of course this can also be done for renters insurance, car insurance, or for whatever other insurance needs you may have.
Your home, seeing that it is one of the most important and one of the biggest (if not the largest) investment that you will ever have, needs to be insured with the right policy. Having your home insured will provide you with considerably greater peace of mind knowing that you, your loved ones, your home, and all of the other valuables that you have inside are always protected. Home insurance, also known as homeowner's insurance and hazard insurance, is the type of insurance policy that you should get for your home in order for you to obtain this peace of mind we are talking about.
Home insurance policies change for different types of properties. Tenant insurance (also called renter's insurance) only covers the contents of a rented house and, depending on the policy, liability. The homeowner's coverage, on the other hand, is focused on the insurance of the building itself to ensure protection in instances that are related to natural hazards, fire or earthquake, or due to unlawful human activities like vandalism. Home insurance covers the rebuild value of a dwelling, but not the market value, which is, in fact, higher. That is why, when the property has undergone some damages, the insurance provider will carry the rebuilding costs so the policyholder is able to restore a corresponding property. This chart features the average premiums for rented and homeowner's insurance in Alberta and Canada. As the chart shows, owned property insurance is, on average, higher than the renter's policy.
Home insurance refers to the coverage and protection of a private residence. It is not important if you live in a high rise apartment or in a farm somewhere, in an island or in the city. It is up to you to decide what you want to cover with your policy and the amount you have to pay will depend on the location and condition your home is in. If your home is located in an area where there is a lot of crime and break-ins, you might have to pay more than usual for theft and vandalism protection. If you are electric system is not in tip top shape, the insurance company will charge you more for fire protection or will ask you to fix it before insuring you.
