If there are any broken or uneven concrete walkways on your property that people can trip and hurt themselves on then your insurance company has a liability risk that they are going to charge you for every month. Fix any potential liability problems and you can save yourself money on your premium every single month. Most policies that you buy come with a standard $500 deductible, but unless you make a lot of small claims against your policy that deductible is costing you a lot of money every year. Doubling your deductible to $1,000 is a small gamble, but it pays off in a big way in the form of a much lower premium every single month. So what's the Big Secret that has your broker tossing and turning all night? It is simply this. If you buy your homeowner's policy online you will instantly save approximately 30% on the cost of your premium every single month.
What to look for in your Insurance Policy. When you start scouting for insurance, make sure that it covers the repair and maintenance of your home and pays for your personal belongings when your home is damaged by acts of nature, fire or vandalism. It should provide accidental and medical coverage to the members of your family. The policy should also offer a personal liability protection in case someone who is not a part of your immediate family gets injured in your home. Do not forget to look for insurance companies that offer discounts based on your home's condition. Having security and safety devices like smoke detectors and burglar alarms will give you a discount since it provides better security. Another thing to look for is flood and earthquake coverage since some insurance companies do not include these in their policy. Homeowners often over look this type of coverage but it is better to be prepared for the worst, just in case it does occur.
It is not easy to find such a policy as mentioned, clearly we need to contact companies who are indeed following the best set rules. We also need to be aware of some of the common policies we have today to get a clear picture of what to expect from your manufactured home insurance company. Let's say for example, you have your property insured for about $750,000, this actually follows that your personal effects should be insured for about $75,000 automatically. You must be aware, as the homeowner, of these set rules. Moreover, if you suffer from damages on your personal belongings or even theft, your possessions should also be covered in the insurance terms, naturally for 50% of your home's cost. When you insure your house for $500,000 then your possessions should be worth $250,000.
What Makes a Manufactured Home Different. Since mobile homes are built in factories, they conform to US government's Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards as well as state and local housing codes. They are also built on a steel chassis and towed on wheels to their site. Ever since June 1976, factories making Manufactured Homes follow strict government guidelines monitored by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This ensures that your house is built to last and the materials used pass a high quality standard. There are two major differences between a conventional home and a mobile home. First, Manufactured Homes are built in factories and are far more economical than conventional ones. Since they are mass-produced, material and labor cost is greatly reduced. The second major difference is conventional homes are built on site providing a sturdier base. This does not mean that a mobile home is unstable. Part of the HUD rules and regulations about manufactured homes is that it should be attached to a permanent foundation. This is achieved by preparing an on-site base for your manufactured home, known as tie-downs, ground anchors and block foundations that greatly help in the stability of your home.
