Home Insurance Is A Smart Choice

Home insurance is not a requirement to owning a home. However, if given the choice to buy or not to buy, our expert opinion is to always ensure you are covered in the event of the unexpected. There is nothing worse than the costly effects of a flood or other natural disaster that can displace families and cost upwards of tens of thousands of dollars in repair.

Homeowners Coverage Consideration

Some things to think about when it comes to choosing the right homeowner’s insurance for your family:

  • How much coverage do I need to be comfortable with the security of my home and belongings?
  • Based on the location and physical quality of my home, what poses the greatest risk to me as a homeowner?

Things to think about when choosing homeowners coverage

Value of your home

The value of your home is in direct relation to the cost of your homeowner’s insurance. The more expensive your home, the more it will cost to repair or replace it.

Value of your personal property

Depending on the value of your belongings, your homeowner’s insurance premiums may go up in order to provide coverage for your personal property.

Value of expensive items

If you have expensive art or jewelry that you want to be insured in case of burglary or theft, this will affect the cost of your premium.

Value of liability coverage

Increasing liability coverage limits will save you from paying out of pocket for expensive medical bills if you are found at fault when someone is injured on your property.

Condo Coverage Consideration

Homeowners insurance is not just for single-family homes. Condo owners also can benefit from purchasing homeowner’s insurance and protecting themselves from the unexpected.

Your condo

Purchasing a condo can be just as expensive as a single-family home. Protect your investment and make sure you’re covered.

Your possessions

Keep your valuables safe and protected in case of burglary or damage and include them under your home insurance policy.

Your assets

There is a great number of valuable assets inside your condo, and you should feel secure that they are protected.

Condo insurance to protect the following

Often overlooked, home insurance for condos is just as important as insurance for single-family homes. While insurance is often included in monthly condo fees, perform your due diligence and find out what your condo’s policy covers and how you and your home are protected.

Your assets

Your assets move with you from house to house, so make sure they are protected under your home insurance.

Your valuables

Our agents will take the time to read through the available insurance options and ensure you are getting the policy that protects you and your valuables.

Your personal belongings

You can trust that your personal belongings are protected when you shop for insurance through OCTO Insurance.

More Information on Flood Insurance

Some homes are at a higher flood risk than others. If there is a high occurrence of floods in your area, adding flood coverage to your home insurance policy is worth it. Our data comparison technology will ensure that your digital quote includes the best rate for this insurance.

High Risk Zone

Some homes are at a higher risk than others for flooding. If you live in a coastal area or are otherwise susceptible to flooding, spend the extra money and relax with the peace of mind that you’ll be covered in the event of a disaster.

Low to Moderate Risk Zone

In low- to moderate-risk zones, it can be tricky to decide whether flood insurance is with it. Speak with an OCTO Insurance Agent and work together to determine whether you should add flood coverage to your policy.

Flood Insurance Coverage Options

Preferred Risk Policy

Preferred risk coverage refers to low- to moderate- risk zones. In these zones, the severity and commonness of flooding is lower and therefore the policy is generally cheaper.

Standard Risk Policy

Standard risk refers to high risk zones where flooding is common. While these rates are generally higher than preferred risk policies, speak to an OCTO Insurance Agent so you can be sure you’re getting the best rate.

What does flood insurance cover?

Building Property Coverage

Building property coverage refers to coverage of the structure of your property including walls, siding, and foundation in the event they are damaged by floodwater.
