How to Buy Mobile Home Insurance. There are several ways to buy insurance. The first thing to keep in mind is that not all insurance policies offered by insurance companies are created equal. Before buying mobile-home insurance, make sure that your insurance agent fully explains your coverage insured by the policy. Do not forget to discuss total costs. Insurance is typically available to cover mobile or manufactured homes in the event of loss. Coverage can also be extended to provide liability protection and insurance against loss from theft.
ACV (Actual Cash Value) or Replacement Cost? These are the two options that you will have to choose between. Surprisingly, most people end up with an ACV policy. This is bad news for the policy holder. ACV policies take into account depreciation of the home when it comes time to pay out for a claim. If your home is 15 years old, they depreciate the estimate to repair your home by 15 years and give you the balance less your deductible. I have personally seen countless policy holders receive as little as 30% of the cost of the estimate. The insurance company will then expect the policy holder to pay the difference. This is pretty common since ACV policies are rather inexpensive to buy and people are often misled into a false sense of protection.
