06 Dec Reasons to Have Home Owners Insurance
Many people wonder why they need homeowners insurance. A lot of the time
people look at it as an extra cost that they don’t need. While we understand the need
and want to save money this is something you don’t want to miss out on. With the
holiday season fast approaching there are more dangers to consider. There can be an
overload on the electric as you decorate for the holidays, causing the electric to fail or
worse a fire. With the colder weather there can be a snowstorm that could cause trees
to break or cause other issues in the home. During the rest of the year fires, lightning
storms, hurricanes, and much more can affect your home.
That is why we have listed the top five reasons to make sure your home is insured,
besides the obvious that the mortgage lender requires you to have it.
1. Insurance covers your personal belongings and protects your liability
- Not only will homeowners insurance protect you if your belongs get stolen, but it will also
protect you against people getting injured on your property that you may
be responsible for.
2. Protection in case there is a Natural Disaster
- This goes a long way year-round. Whether, it is a snowstorm, fire,
hurricane, flood, or rainstorm it pays to have protection on your home to
make sure that you can rebuild.
3. Loss of use of your home
- If you ever in a predicament where anything causes you to lose use of
your home, meaning you have to temporarily move out this will help you
pay for lodging and living expenses.
4. Having insurance can cover more than just your Home
- Coverage for structures on the property but separate from the dwelling.
Examples of detached structures include as garages, sheds, fences,
driveways, patios, pools, and more.
5. Peace of Mind
- This is so important! Having insurance even if you never have to use it,
gives the peace of mind that should something happen you won’t be left
