When Home Values Increase, Should You Increase Your Homeowners Insurance?
It is commonly held that when home values go up, you should increase your homeowners insurance. Of course you want to protect your most valuable investment. This question has plagued homeowners and it is one that should be discussed with your insurance agent. When the value of a house increases significantly, you want to be sure it is covered for the full amount. If you have purchased expensive artwork or furniture these should be inventoried with your homeowners insurance as well. Discussing periodic homeowners insurance reviews is something to do with a professional agent. Bogle Agency Insurance staff have years of experience in answering questions about all types of insurance coverage.
Does a Remodel Mean You Need More Coverage?
Not every increase in the value of a house requires additional insurance. If the value of your home increases due to the usual market reasons, such as supply and demand, NJ homeowners insurance probably doesn’t need to be changed.
But, if you have had a major addition built, or had a kitchen or basement completely re-done, this could impact the amount of insurance coverage you should have. Again, a question that needs to be discussed with your agent.
