Taking the first step in purchasing adequate home insurance, is even more important when you own a home. With home values still close to all-time highs, our homes are not only the place we live, but also our largest investment. Our families rely on the sanctity of our homes. With natural disasters so prevalent these days, it should be a reminder to us that we should have full home insurance coverage. If you live in a flood or an earthquake zone, make sure that you have either flood or earthquake coverage. Many home insurers don't include this type of coverage in their policies. If you can't purchase it as a rider within your policy, you have access to coverage through government protection. Home insurance protects against liability, as well as disaster. This is very important, as protecting you, your family, and friends from these issues should be paramount.
There are different kinds of coverage which go from an HO0 category which covers damage from fire, smoke, lightning, explosion and others which are very general, up to an HO5 category which covers most anything that can happen to your home. An HO5 home insurance policy will cover everything with the exception of items specifically mentioned in it, some of the items most insurance companies will not cover are floods, earthquakes and termite damage. Beware just because you buy this category of home insurance, it does not mean you are covered, the policy you buy must detail specifically what is and is not covered.
