What is the best type of insurance for a homeowner who owns an older home?
There are many factors that must be weighed in order to determine the best insurance for a particular individual. Some homeowners choose a high deductible to keep premiums affordable, while other homeowners want to keep out of pocket expenses to a minimum during an emergency. They opt for a lower deductible, therefore. ACV and replacement policies can also vary. Homeowners should discuss their coverage needs with their insurance agent.
Many homeowners are unsure of the type of coverage they have. They might know their deductible, but little else. It is extremely important that homeowners periodically review their insurance policy. It is also important to know exactly what type of damage will be covered. If a homeowner has any doubt, they should contact their insurance agent to discuss the details of their coverage.
An important factor that homeowners should understand is that the typical actual cash value policy can require a substantial out-of-pocket payment from the policyholder. Not only will the homeowner be required to pay their deductible prior to the insurance company making a settlement, but they might also be surprised at how the settlement is calculated. An ACV policy will prorate the cost of a roof. If a homeowner has already had their roof for 10 years of a 30-year warranty, the insurance company will calculate coverage based on the remaining two-thirds of the roof’s life expectancy.
