5 Factors to Consider When Purchasing Home Insurance

The purpose of home insurance is to protect your home and valuables from perils that can cause financial loss. The right policy will provide just the protection you need without wasting money on unnecessary coverage. At Toedt Insurance Agency LLC in Albany, NY, we can personalize your policy to meet your unique insurance needs.

Here are some important factors to consider when purchasing a home policy:

Type of Coverage

Standard home insurance offers dwelling, contents, and liability coverage. You can review these types of coverage with your Toedt Insurance agent to fully understand the protection they provide. You should also be aware of the perils your policy protects you from, such as theft, vandalism, storm damage, tornadoes, etc. If you want protection from flooding, you’ll need to purchase a separate flood insurance policy.  

Amount of Coverage

In addition to the type of coverage, you decide the amount of coverage you want to protect your property. Dwelling coverage, for example, should cover the cost of rebuilding your home if it’s totally destroyed in a disaster. We can help you assess the value of your home and its contents to help you obtain accurate coverage.

Claims Process

Another factor to consider is the claims process. Talk to your insurer about filing a claim so you understand what’s required to get compensation when you need it most.

Insurance Cost

By shopping around, you can get a better idea of home insurance costs in your local area. Be sure to compare what different policies offer in relation to their costs. You don’t want to be penny-wise and pound-foolish when it comes to protecting your most valuable asset.

Insurance Company

Finally, choose a reputable insurance company you can trust. At Toedt Insurance Agency LLC in Albany, NY, we offer quality home insurance at affordable costs.
