Home insurance renews either every six months or once a year. When you get your renewal in the mail or online, it will have a declaration page. This is all the information you need to know about your policy. It tells you whose name it is in, the amount of coverage on the home, the content, and the liability. It also lists the deductible. It’s a good time to consider any updates. At Insurancewide Company LLC in Phoenix, AZ, we are an independent insurance agency that puts the needs of our customers first and foremost.
When you renew
When your policy is set to renew is an obvious time to make any updates. Some updates will affect your rates. If you decide to raise the amount of your deductible, you can save some money, or you may decide to change the type of content coverage you have. If you change to actual cash value from replacement cost you will cut your costs and if you change the other direction, your premium may go up.
When you are worth more
You may not even think about your assets and your actual financial worth but as you accumulate more wealth, it is important you increase the liability limits on your policy. The more you are worth, the bigger potential you have for a case against you.
You make home repairs
How much you pay for home insurance is determined in some part by the age of your roof, your electrical, HVAC, and plumbing. If you replace or update any of these systems, be sure to let your agent know so that they can make the necessary changes.
Make your home safer
If you add a security system or smoke detectors these are things to let your agent know about.
