This is particularly helpful in understanding the way in which claims are handled by each Insurer. Nobody wants to have a claim under a home policy but it is of course what insurance is all about. High value insurance brokers are very well equipped to deal with and advise on the handling of the claim at every stage of the process. Their key role is to keep the client informed of what is happening and managing their expectations on all matters relating to the claim. If the correct amount of time and effort has been invested originally when arranging the Insurance policy the likelihood of problems occurring are considerably lower. However should a dispute arise it is comforting to know that high value home insurance brokers will always have your best interests at heart and will always act in your interests to ensure a swift and fair claims settlement.
A home insurance policy may include more things than the actual house, it may include personal property inside the home and property, liabilities you may have because of accidents or damages to third party property within your property and reasonable repair costs. It is also possible to include insurance that will cover your living expenses in case your home is destroyed and you have to move elsewhere while it is fixed or rebuilt. This may be handy especially if you live in an area where natural disasters may occur or occur frequently. The bills will mount up very fast if you have to pay for repairs and at the same time pay rent somewhere else. Even liability insurance inside the property is a great idea because you do not know when someone will slip and fall in your wet doorway and you will have to pay for medical care. Home insurance will cover this too.
It is important to understand the average home insurance cost and all the factors that impact it. On average, homeowners pay $780 for home insurance in Ontario but factors such as location, replacement costs, coverage and riders, such as flood or jewelry coverage, can have a major impact on the coverage. Renters can also purchase insurance, and the rates are generally cheaper for renters than they are for owners. Although the market value of your home does not directly impact what you pay for insurance, it can give you an idea of what you can expect to see in terms of costs - or at least what you should plan and budget for. A home valued at under $300,000 usually sees an average cost in Ontario of $702 a year, and homes in the higher brackets, for example between $300,000 and $700,000, can expect to pay $1,000 (approximately $924) but again, the final numbers will include other factors.
Provincial differences do exist. Coverage costs vary by province because each province has its own unique challenges. Average insurance in Ontario are not typically impacted by things like earthquake coverage but the same cannot be said of British Columbia, for example. In Canada, overland flooding is a separate area for insurance and insurers are not typically willing to cover this risk. As an example, an average home insurance premium in Alberta is ~$900/year for homeowners. Quebec homeowners pay on average ~$840/year in home insurance costs.
