  • How much would it cost to rebuild your home?

    Why we ask: Dwelling coverage, or Coverage A, pays to repair or rebuild your home if it's damaged in a covered loss. Insurers will need to know the cost to rebuild your home so you'll have enough coverage in case your home is destroyed due to a covered peril.Opens in new tab

  • How much would it cost to replace your belongings?

    Why we ask: Personal property coverage, or Coverage C, insures your belongings — meaning anything that isn't attached to your home. If you were to lose everything you own in a fire, for example, you want enough personal property coverage to replace your belongings.

  • What is your net worth?

    Why we ask: Liability coverage, or Coverage E, provides financial protection if you or your household's residents are liable for bodily injury and/or property damage. You need enough coverage to account for all your assets in case you're sued because of injuries or damages at your home.

  • What do you prefer?

    Why we ask: You have the option to choose the deductible on your homeowners policy. A higher deductible can bring down your home insurance premium, but that means a bigger out-of-pocket expense in the event of a claim. A lower deductible can increase your premium, but you'll pay less out of pocket in case of a claim.

How is homeowners insurance calculated?

Dwelling coverage (Coverage A) on your policy, which protects your home’s structure, as well as other structures (Coverage B), which covers structures not attached to the main dwelling, is typically calculated by determining how much it would cost to replace your home and/or other structure. There are many factors that play into this, including but not limited to:

  • Labor and material costs
  • Supply chain disruptions
  • Fluctuating market trends for your area

All these factors often go into determining your replacement cost, and why you may periodically see your homeowners insurance cost change as the market changes.

Personal property coverage (Coverage C) limits are calculated by taking a percentage -- such as 50% -- of your dwelling coverage. For instance, if you’re dwelling coverage is set at a $300,000 limit, your homeowners policy will offer $150,000 for personal property coverage.

Loss of use coverage (Coverage D) limits are typically determined by taking some percentage – such as 10% or 20% -- of your dwelling coverage limit. For example, if your dwelling coverage is $300,000, then your loss of use coverage limit will be $30,000 or $60,000.

Personal liability coverage (Coverage E) limits typically range from $100,000 to $500,000 on standard homeowners insurance policies. If you need more than $500,000 in personal liability coverage, consider an umbrella insurance policy.

Estimating home insurance cost

Keep in mind that inflation and materials cost can rise and fall depending on the market, so what initially could have been enough coverage to replace your house when you purchased your policy may not hold true in an ever-changing market. To keep your home insurance rate affordable and up to date, it’s best to review your policy annually to ensure you’re keeping up with market trends, have sufficient coverage, and to check available homeowners insurance discounts to see if you can lower your rate.
