Home insurance is something that we all have to have on our homes if we have a mortgage or other types of loans out against the value of the home. This means that home insurance also comes in a wide range of sizes and a wide range of policy types that fit each home. For those that live in the San Antonio, TX area, the agents with Versatile Insurance Planners can help you find your perfect home insurance policy.
There are virtually thousands of different types of home insurance policies to choose from. This means that there are also thousands of different coverage types and different levels of coverage. There is no such thing as a liability only policy when it comes to home insurance. There is, however, a base amount of insurance that a home must be insured for. This base number is factored based on the amount of the loan that you have out on the house. This means if you have a $200,000 loan on the home, you have to have at least $200,000 home insurance.
Though you only have to have the home covered for the amount of your loan, it is always best to have your home covered for the value of the house rather than just the amount of the loan. If your home is destroyed and you only have it insured for the amount of the loan, you are going to have no money to buy another home or rebuild. It is always best to make sure you have your home assessed and covered for its full value and for the value of the contents of the house as well to make sure you can both rebuild or buy another home, as well as purchase the contents of your home again.
