Unscheduled Contents coverage
Most home insurance underwriters will offer unscheduled contents coverage as a percentage at 40 or 60 percent of the homes insured value . With the prices of real-estate in today's market this can sometimes far exceed the value of our possessions within the home. If you believe you have excessive contents coverage you might consider asking your agent if you can reduce the unscheduled contents portion of yuor homeowners insurance to 30 or 25 percent.
The Liability portion of your homeowners insurance is often considered the most important coverage on a Houston homeowners insurance policy next to the main structure coverage itself. Review your policy liability limits. If you find you have 1 or 2 or even 5 Million dollars in liability coverage and your home is a 150 thousand dollar typical suburban, you might want to consider a more practical range of 100, 300 or 500 thousand in liability coverage. In some markets the extra liability included in the policy could be a beef up of a policy to make the asking price more palatable. Never the less though one should take an assessment of ones liability exposures and attachable assets from time to time to insure we have enough coverage to protect our exposures. These occasional assessments can also save us money on our home insurance premium by knowing the limits of coverage we actually need.
Many Home insurance providers automatically include some coverage amount for accidental injury in the home. This coverage is most often referred to as "Med Pay" and considered by some to be an attractive policy option. Often this coverage is anywhere from 500 to 5000 or even 10,000 dollars. When we already have a separate ACA compliant health insurance, this may be considered by many to be unnecessary double coverage on a homeowners policy. A major medical policy provides coverage regardless of whether our injury occurs in or away from home. You may consider asking your agent if there would be any savings by removing the med pay coverage from your home policy if you believe you already have a comprehensive Health insurance Policy.
