House InsuranceHome Insurance

Owning a home means that you are responsible to protect and maintain the property. Among the considerations that you will want to evaluate is the insurance that is most appropriate for your situation. By comparing a variety of policies through an independent agency like Nevada Insurance, you can select a policy that will make you feel comfortable in your home.

Protection Standards

Homeowner's insurance is not required by the state of Nevada, but your mortgage lender may ask that you purchase a policy to protect the property in case certain situations arise. The coverage that is required by your mortgage lender can vary, so you should ask about the standards and minimum requirements before you purchase the house.

In many cases, you will be asked to obtain coverage against storm damage, fires, theft or similar situations. Most policies will not include flood protection or coverage against earthquakes, but you may be able to add to the plan if you are concerned about limitations in the current policy.

Comparing Rates

Using the online tools that are available with an independent agency like Nevada Insurance, you can compare the rates that you are expected to pay and the coverage that is available through the top insurance providers.

Along with the rates, you should evaluate the coverage that is available. The coverage can vary and the exact terminology is an important factor to consider when you are looking at different plans. You can call an agency for more details if you find the terminology confusing or if you have questions about a particular plan.

Taking measures to protect your property and avoid any unnecessary hassles that may be associated with homeownership requires the right insurance policy. To learn more about the options that are available in Nevada, contact us to talk to an agent today.

Renters Insurance

When you are renting, it is important to understand your protection and coverage needs, too. The landlord’s policy will not protect your losses due to theft, damage or liability in the event you are found responsible for an accident. If a person claims to be injured in your rental due to your carelessness, you could be held financially responsible. One of our Nevada Insurance agents can discuss your specific needs as a renter and help you find the right coverage policy from our wide range of carriers.
