There is a lot of misunderstanding about getting manufactured or mobile home insurance. A lot of people think that it is difficult or even impossible to do. But the truth is, a lot of home insurance companies now offer insurance coverage for your mobile home. It is important that you do your homework and become familiar with the different types of policies offered before you make your decision. Here are three tips to help you in knowing what to look for when you are trying to find a mobile home policy. The three most important areas to be aware of are personal property or your personal possessions, liability coverage, and insurance on the home itself and surrounding property.
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.
