Your Invisible Homeowner’s’ Insurance Policy

Your Invisible Homeowner’s’ Insurance Policy

It is mysterious and can be difficult to understand. You may have had it for years and never gave it much thought. Your bank or mortgage company may have required it but once you get it, it can simply be forgotten. That is until, of course, you need it. Then it can help or haunt you. We are talking about the amazing, disappearing and invisible homeowners’ insurance policy.

What puts homeowners’ insurance into this invisible category? There are several factors.

It is Purchased Infrequently

Many homeowners only purchase a homeowners’ insurance policy when they buy their home. They may even buy it over the phone or online without a full understanding of what they are saying “yes” or “no” to. It is also a very busy time when tons of documents are being filled out. Homeowners’ insurance likely doesn’t get the consideration it deserves before being acquired.

Paying for it may be Automatic

Since many pay for their homeowners’ insurance premiums through their mortgage payments, some homeowners may not even know how much they are paying for coverage. They may not know who their provider is. It is less likely they know the coverage, deductibles, and limits of their policy.

It is Seldom Used

Only about 1 in 20 homes will make a homeowners’ insurance claim in any given year. Only about 1 in 50 sustain wind or hail damage. Even if minor damage occurs, many will pay to fix it themselves as opposed to paying their deductible and filing a claim.

Dangers of the Invisible Homeowners’ Insurance Policy

Your invisible homeowners’ policy can actually be a bit scary and even costly. It may not cover you for certain calamities like flooding or earthquakes. Your home’s value may have outgrown your coverage and you may even be overpaying for it. Out of sight often equals of out mind.
