What is Homeowners Insurance?

Homeowners insurance is a kind of insurance policy that protects homeowners against economic losses and damage caused by storms, fires or burglary. A homeowners policy will also cover legal costs if someone is hurt in your home or on your property.  Homeowners insurance is almost always required to get a home loan.

What does Homeowners Insurance cover?

Homeowners insurance policies vary, but most will cover the following:

  • The home, including its structure, electrical wiring, plumbing and HVAC systems
  • Other buildings or structures on your property, like garages, sheds, poolhouses, etc.
  • Your possessions, including everything from appliances and silverware to jewelry and electronics
  • Expenses incurred due to loss of use, such as the price of a hotel room while your home is being repaired
  • Personal liability coverage, which covers financial losses and legal expenses in the event that someone is injured on your property and sues you
  • Medical costs associated with someone getting hurt in your home or on your property

How much is Westchester County Homeowners Insurance?

How much is a Westchester County homeowners insurance policy? That depends on what kind of policy you choose.

An HO-3 policy is the most common policy for owners of single-family homes, and includes coverage for fire, theft and wind (storm damage). A good rule of thumb for determining how much you may pay is $35 dollars per month per every $100,000 of home value. Rates vary depending on your city and state and the insurance company you choose.

Home insurance premiums are paid monthly, generally at the same time as your mortgage payment. Review your coverage each year with your insurance agent to make sure your coverage matches your current needs. Additional coverage can be added to your policy at any time should your circumstances change.
