If catastrophe struck and your home was devastated, do you know the complete cost to rebuild/replace your home? The answer is likely, no. The carriers we represent provide 100% Replacement Cost. According to Marshall & Swift/Boeckh, as of 2014, most homeowners only have enough coverage to pay for 78% of the costs to replace or rebuild their homes.
WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED
We are familiar and knowledgeable with the unique insurance coverage that your home needs, no matter the size or luxury. Below are several coverage options available with some of the carriers that we represent.
GUARANTEED REPLACEMENT COST
If your home is insured for $1,000,000 and it costs $3,000,000 to rebuild, that’s what our insurance companies will pay, if you have guaranteed replacement cost. Guaranteed means Guaranteed, regardless of the policy limit.
CASH OUT OPTION
The insurance company pays the dwelling limit in cash to you instead of rebuilding your home after your home is destroyed.
UNLIMITED LOSS OF USE
Need to stay in a rental, hotel or AirBnB while your home is being re-built? No problem. The cost of living while exiled is unlimited.
UNLIMITED BACK UP OF SEWER & DRAIN
If your sump pump fails due to heavy rains, water comes up through a drain or sink or a sewer backup causes damage to your home, coverage for this type of loss is typically limited with most insurance companies. Our companies can solve this problem.
UNLIMITED REBUILDING TO CODE
Municipality laws and ordinances change over time. If your home suffers catastrophic damage, it is most likely you will have to rebuild to local codes and this can add thousands of dollars to the total cost. Most insurance companies limit coverage for these costs or don’t cover them at all. Our companies offer expanded or unlimited coverage for ordinance and law costs.
Customize your policy by increasing or decreasing the limits of personal property and other structures.
PERSONAL PROPERTY REPLACEMENT COST
Replacement cost means the insurance company will replace your damaged personal property new for old, without a deduction for depreciation.
WAIVER OF YOUR DEDUCTIBLE
If your home loss amounts to over $50,000 the insurance company will waive your deductible.
Any damage to trees, shrubbery, your lawn or custom landscaping is repaired or replaced due to certain covered losses such as a fire, lightening, wind, theft or vandalism.
EXTENSION OF LIABILITY
You can be sued arising out of the ownership, maintenance or use of property. If your name is on a lease or a title, liability and medical payments coverage can be extended to that property to make certain you are insured for its use.
Property damaged during a loss can be rebuilt and upgraded with environmentally friendly materials.
