What would happen if a disaster struck your home tomorrow? Do you have home insurance? Even if you do, are you confident you’re properly covered for damages and total loss? Would you be required to pay out of pocket for some or all the repairs?
For homeowners with high-value homes, these questions are crucial to address. Some major insurance carriers hold on new clients after a disaster strikes.
More importantly, when you're facing a crisis, you’ll feel less pressure knowing:
High value home insurance is available to most every homeowner that is concerned about covered replacement values. Typically, homes that are worth upwards of $1,000,000 should consider this insurance.
Even with a typical homeowners insurance policy, there's a great risk you may not be able to replace your beautiful home if disaster strikes. Why? Your home's market value is probably higher than what your current policy will cover.
High value home insurance closes the gap between regular home insurance replacement cost and your home's actual value, allowing you to rebuild what you've lost.
The more your house is worth, the greater the difference will be between what your current policy may pay and what your precious home will cost to replace.
You'll be surprised how affordable it is to cover your whole house with a high value home policy.
You may feel satisfied that your homeowner's policy will protect you in case of a disaster but have you read the actual amount you will be compensated? Typically, the coverage is capped in two ways you may not realize: a maximum per-square-foot value and an overall maximum.
Home insurance covers the hazards that most homeowners face. When a loss occurs, you will file a claim with your insurance carrier, and you are paid for the expenses, minus any outstanding deductible amounts.

For instance, if someone slips and falls in your home or is injured somewhere on your property, you can be held responsible. Liability coverage is there to protect you.
You could also potentially need insurance to protect you from having to pay for:

There are many things about insuring a home that most consumers aren’t aware of. We are here to make sure you avoid potential problem areas, including:
Many policies default to actual cash value, which means if you purchased a widescreen TV and home theater system for $1,000, it may now only be worth $450, so that's all you'll receive on the claim. Just like the dwelling limit mentioned above, replacement cost insurance pays out the total replacement value of your possessions, not their market value, in the event of a claim.
IMPORTANT: You can combine your Home and Auto policies (and others) for even more savings.
