Is Your Home Underinsured?

About two out of every three homes in America are underinsured*.

With the rising cost of building supplies and labor (up 33% since the start of the pandemic**), you could be underinsured by thousands of dollars, leaving you at risk of major financial loss should a disaster affect your home. 

Your homeowner’s policy can offer financial protection in the event of an unexpected disaster. But how you will be reimbursed following a claim depends on the type of coverage you have. Don’t know what you currently have in place? Reach out to us today! 

Ensure that your homeowner's policy limits correspond to the cost to rebuild. 

Unlike a home’s resale value (which includes the cost of the land), the cost to rebuild is based on the amount needed to hire a contractor plus building materials and other additional costs.

You decide how much coverage to buy for your home, but TrueNorth recommends purchasing coverage at least equal to the estimated cost of rebuilding your home. 

Reach out to us today to understand the various coverage available and which one is right for you.
