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.
An insurance company is very particular with the risk factors. When an issuer provides you with a quote, it is already considering the odds of getting a claim. Normally, stolen contents in your home are covered but one should keep in mind that failure to secure or lock the doors will nullify the claim as it is not covered due to negligence. Not surprisingly, manufactured homes are generally not as secure as permanent houses maybe due to the tendency that these homes are often found on areas with high density of population and anonymity. Add to the fact that mobile or park homes are not really as sturdy and burglars can break in with relative ease. Most manufactured homes are not equipped with security system as well. In other words, mobile homes are situated in locations where there is a high propensity of theft and the structure itself is more inviting for burglars. This is one of the main reasons why insurance of mobile home owners are more expensive.
Few mobile house owners realize that they can actually be held liable and financially responsible for any damage that they may cause to leased land, and mobile home insurance is a perfect way to solve the problem.

Secondly, a good insurance policy will include liability insurance. Liability coverage protects you, the homeowner, if someone gets hurt on your property or in your home. It can pay for medical expenses and costs associated with the injury. A good policy will also help pay for legal defense in the event that you are sued. It should also cover damages made to the property when the accident occurred. However, it does not cover injuries to you or your immediate family living in the home. To determine the amount of liability coverage that you might need, think about how many people will be in and out of your home on a daily basis. If you have teenagers that are always inviting friends over, liability insurance is a must! It is important to try to make your home and property as safe as possible. Keep the porch and walkways in good repair. Always have adequate lighting and keep your home free of excessive clutter.
