What is home owners insurance?
Homeowners insurance is designed to protect you from the things that can damage your home, belongings, or hurt you financially. It covers wind/hail damage, fires, lightning, theft, and more. Plus it covers injuries that occur on your property and lawsuits against you, such as someone suing you because they were hurt at your home.

When should you consider home owners insurance?
Homeowners insurance is for you if you own a home, vacation home, or are purchasing a home. If you own a condo, town house, or row home you need condo insurance—or renters insurance if you rent from someone else. Not sure? Get a homeowners insurance quote, and we'll make sure you get the right policy. Remember, about 1 in 15 insured homes has a claim each year.
If you have a mortgage, your lender will likely require you to get insurance for your home. We'll help take care of the details with your lender. Plus, in most situations, you'll be able to combine your insurance payments with your mortgage bill (called escrow).
