If you have a child in college, check with your insurance agent about whether the child’s residence requires a separate insurance policy. Nearly all policies will cover belongings stored in a dorm room, while the regulations about off-campus apartment living will vary widely from policy to policy, even within the same company. Most basic home owner’s policies only cover jewelry for one to two thousand dollars. If your jewelry is worth more than that, you’ll need to add additional coverage to your policy. This will increase your premium but is worth it in the case of theft, fire, or other losses of your items.
Getting home owner’s insurance before any major problems occur to your home, can help protect you, your family and your finances! Do not risk owning a home without home owner’s insurance! Instead, use the tips above to guide you through the process and you’ll be on your way to protecting the place where your favorite memories take place.
Homeowner’s insurance can be costly, so it is important to do anything you can to reduce the costs. One way that you be able to reduce the cost is to ask if you are eligible for group coverage, which may be available through your job, business associations, or alumni groups. You could be eligible for substantial savings, so it is worth doing a little research.
