How Should I Estimate My Home’s Worth?

Residents that live in the Aliso Viejo, CA area are not required by law to purchase homeowners insurance. Most lenders, however, will compel a homeowner to purchase coverage, which will help to protect their investment. For those without a lender, we still highly recommend that you acquire home insurance coverage to protect yourself from liability and damages that could result in financial strains from paying out of pocket. Below are some of the reasons we suggest a home insurance policy and help from one of our agents to make sure you are fully covered in any situation.

Count the Cost

If your home should become a total loss and need rebuilding, you are going to want your home’s estimate to reflect that reality. This is why it is vital that you not insure it for the dwelling’s current market value. The price that somebody would pay to buy your home may not be equal to the cost of building it from the ground up, as the total may be more, or it may, actually, be less. For this reason, it is good to be aware of the building codes in your area so that if construction rates change, you can keep your policy up to date.

It is vital to insure your structure for at least the amount that is owed on the mortgage, and you will need to update your figures if you have added on or performed renovations to your house. Other factors that affect your home’s replacement value are the footage of the home, type of roof, number of floors, exterior materials, types of interior features, and enhancements like garages and fireplaces.
