How to Get an Accurate Homeowner Insurance Quote

103 31
There are many factors that go into determining what your rates will be for a homeowners insurance policy.
While each insurance company has their own way of determining what your costs will be, all have one thing in common - the more coverage options you choose, the more you will pay.
In other words, the higher the amount of coverage for your home is, the more your rates will be.
Therefore, in order to get an accurate homeowner insurance quote, you need to first determine how much your home should be insured for.
When giving out quotes for new home insurance policies, many insurance companies will use inaccurate values to determine the rate they quote you.
They will devalue the home, underestimate the cost of repairing certain problems, etc.
They will do this to make their rates look as low as possible in an attempt to gain your business.
However, when it comes time to sign on the policy, the rates that they quoted you could prove to be higher than originally quoted.
You need to be aware of the true amounts that your home needs to be insured for.
Of course, if you have financed your home and have purchased it five years ago or less, and still have a principle amount of higher than 80% of the value of the home, the lender will set the insurance amount and will require that you secure coverage of at least that amount.
However, if coverage is up to you, determine the coverage amounts beforehand to make sure that the quote you receive is true.
The coverage amount should be equal to the amount of money it will take to repair or completely rebuild the home should disaster strike.
Many people make the mistake of insuring the home for the appraised value of the home.
